New Year’s Eve Schedule, December 31, 2020

Here is the schedule for tomorrow night’s New Year’s Eve Ceremonies. You’re welcome to join any or all parts of the evening.

Post-New Year’s Schedule: This Weekend

Once 2020 is mercifully behind us, our Zoom sittings will resume on Friday evening, January 1, 7:00 to 8:00. The Center’s staff are off that day, so there will be no formal sittings at Arnold Park or Chapin Mill (hence no audio-livestreaming).

On Saturday, January 2, there’s Finding Your Seat from 11:00 to noon.

On Sunday, January 3, Roshi will be giving Teisho.

Rohatsu Sesshin Deadline

A reminder that the deadline for the 7-day Rohatsu sesshin (January 8 – 15) is Monday, January 4. (online sesshin application)

Charitable Contribution Deduction

At the end of January we’ll be sending every donor a formal tax-substantiation letter detailing his or her contributions for 2020. Please remember that donors may not be able to deduct individual contributions of $250 or more if they file a tax return before receiving a proper written acknowledgement (acknowledgement requirement). Also, for 2020 only, you can deduct up to $300 in qualifying donations from your taxable income even if you claim the standard deduction ($300 deduction). Once again, many thanks for your support!
