Sangha Entertainment – This Weekend Only!

After a one-year absence, Sangha Entertainment Night returns to the Buddha Hall, Saturday, April 13, starting at 6 p.m.

This is a purely make-our-own-fun event, so if you would like to entertain (a skit? a song? an unholy combination of both?), e-mail Trueman ( with the details of your act. (Once again, Phil Swanson and his keyboard will be here from Massachusetts to provide musical stylings for anyone who wants backup; if you’d like Phil to accompany you, be sure to e-mail Trueman with the details so that Phil has time to prepare.)

Sangha Book Club

Meetings of the Book Club will start back up in May, and the next two dates have been set: Sunday, May 19 at 6:30 p.m. & Sunday June 23rd at 6:30 p.m. We’ll meet at the Center, room still to be decided.

If you’d like to start reading, the featured book is The Path of Compassion: Writings on Socially Engaged Buddhism, edited by Fred Eppsteiner, an early member of the Center.

There will be snacks! And if you have questions, reach out to Susanna Guarino (
