The caption reads: "OVERFLOW CROWD--800 persons attended the dedication service at the Gardena Valley Baptist Church for its new sanctuary and classrooms. Many more sent letters and telegrams of good wishes. Flowers and plants were received from A-One Florist, Bank of Tokyo, Ezell Office Furniture Co., Gardena Valley Japanese Cultural Institute, Gardena Van and Storage, Lawndale Nursery, and Mr. and Mrs. K. Yanai. The Bank of Tokyo gave the church a piano. At the pulpit is Rev. Eishi Hirose, pastor."
