Sangha Hike in Letchworth Park

Karen Findling will lead a hike on Monday, June 4, for everyone who’d like to join in:

We’ll meet at the Center at 9 am to carpool, or anyone who would rather drive on their own can meet us at the Glen Iris Inn parking lot at 10:20. Bring a picnic lunch. We could all hike up to the high falls and back, check out the museum and the new Nature Center, have lunch, and drive north through the park to check out overlooks and maybe do another short hike. June 18 is the rain date.

The Return of a Long-Time Member

After years of a disability that kept him pretty much house bound, Steve DeBusk is able now to re-engage at the Center. He’s written a letter reintroducing himself to the Sangha, and it’s posted on the bulletin board near the changing rooms in 7 Arnold Park.
