Sunday 5-6 pm Sits are being held at the sangha house with masks and safe distancing required.
Kym Mellsop, chair of our caring committee wants you to know that "we are still here and would like to help anyone in our Sangha community who needs temporary help with meals, household tasks, shopping, driving to appointments etc." Kym can be reached at 719-207-3077.
Sensitive to the homeless situation in our community, the sangha made a donation to the Salida Winter Shelter for the unhomed. We also made a year end donation to Brian Lesage in gratitude for his continued teachings.
Sangha House Inspection
In preparing our budget for next year the board was concerned about any repairs or updates that may be required at the house. Bob Spencer, retired contractor, graciously performed a thorough pro bono inspection of the house and declared it in very good condition for it's age. The few things that needed attention have been taken care of by the awesome Phil Sasso.
With our blessings to all for a happy, healthy, enlightened holiday season,
Your Salida Sangha Boardedit.
