This Coming Saturday, June 12th!
7:30 a.m. (or whenever you can get there) intil around 9:30 a.m.
The board met in the yard at the sangha house today and determined that there are enough bad guys about to go to seed that we need to have an emergency cleanup. We had a really good turnout last month and made fabulous progress in a short time. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH! Plus this is a good opportunity to chat together and also for you to give us some useful feedback on the thoughts we have about a memorial/meditation garden in the yard.
Permanent Yardwork Crew Needed
In addition to this Saturday’s weed pulling session we would like to establish a small group of dedicated people to create a “Yardwork Crew”.
This group would have the following duties: regular watering of trees, plantings and possibly grass; regular weeding; occasional pruning of trees; occasional thinning of plants, as required; maintenance of “hell strip”; other outdoor projects as needed. It would be good to have 4 – 8 people so these duties could be rotated. The expectation would be for a once per month commitment to spend some early morning or evening hours doing what’s needed during the hot months and then tapering off during other months. This crew might also be involved with winter show shoveling, as needed. Anyone interested please contact Paul at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
HAVE A JOYOUS SUMMER EVERYONE!
PLEASE JOIN US TOMORROW, JUNE 6th at 5:00

September 18-19 Retreat With Brian Lesage
We are considering holding the September retreat at Meadowrock Ranch in Nathrop in person for those who have been fully vaccinated by August 17th.However the board needs your input about this question in order to make a decision. Brian is open to doing either a Zoom retreat for everyone or an in person retreat with those of us who have been vaccinated. We understand that the in person option excludes those who aren’t vaccinated but we as a Sangha are responsible for putting safety first.
Please respond to this poll by May 30th by simply replying to this email with a Yes or No and any comments you would like to share! Also, please reach out if you have any questions.
If we held this retreat in person at Meadowrock with up to 30 fully vaccinated (by August 17th) participants, would you attend?
Thanks in advance for letting us know your preference!
The Salida Sangha Board
HEAR YE! HEAR YE! HEAR YE!
CALLING ALL ABLE BODIES AND WILLING HEARTS!
The yard at the Sangha House has been invaded by swarms of unwanted green aliens this past week. So we are hosting an emergency yard cleanup this Sunday, May 23 at 10:00 a.m. If possible PLEASE join us for some fun camaraderie and wholesome yogi chores! Tools, gloves, hats etc. are recommended and your help will be met with boundless gratitude.
Many hands make light, quick and enjoyable work!
Hope to see you on Sunday.
DOES ANYBODY REMEMBER WHEN THE YARD USED TO LOOK LIKE THIS?
With blessings to all from your Sangha!
