June 24th

Date details +

    Please join us on Sunday, June 24th from 12:00 - 4:00 p.m. for the Annual Northern California Regional Midsummer Potluck Picnic at beautiful McNear’s Beach Park in San Rafael, on the shores of the San Pablo Bay.

    Click hear for more information on McNears including driving directions etc.

    This is a potluck event so please bring your favorite dish to share. There are barbecue grills, a small sandy beach where we can dip our toes and a large grassy area under the trees.

    This is a great way to relax with old sangha friends and meet new ones, with no agenda other than enjoying the rocks, trees, water, sky, each other and so on. A lhasang will begin the festivities.

    We will need volunteers for set up, staffing the bbq grill and especially for clean up and we ask that you please sign up through your individual centers for these activities.

    Also we are asking that everyone bring their own dishes, cutlery and napkins, leaving the disposables at home. We hope to make this a “green event”, where we attempt to “leave no trace”. Compost buckets and a dishwashing station will be provided.

    Please note that there is a $10 parking fee, so be sure to carpool if you can. (Marin Co. residents can get a free parking pass from local Marin libraries).

    For questions, contact Karen Walls, coordinator: mail to Karen.
