Elders, youth praised in Ukiah

Speaker urges: 'Be young in your old age'

Ukiah Daily Journal 11/15/2014

On a day set aside for honoring those who have lived quite a few years, at the City of 10,000 Buddhas in Talmage Saturday, it was also noted that we should never underestimate the value of youth.

"Elders are the world's most honorable people, but they also bear great responsibility," said 5th District Mendocino County Supervisor Dan Hamburg, quoting the words of Venerable Master Hsuan Hua, who founded the city, at the annual Honoring Elders Day. "People should have youth in old age; as one grows older, they should also grow younger," as difficult as that may be to accomplish.

Officially, the club started earlier, but did not have the opportunity to hold a meeting until a week before the river clean-up.
