June 5 Garden Party and Memorial for Karen Miller (update)

We will hold a memorial for Karen Miller at our next Garden Party on Saturday, June 5. Karen sadly passed away on August 19, 2020. She had asked her husband, Bob, to have her memorial at the Hermitage with a gathering of friends and family. It was Karen’s wish to have an informal gathering of friends for her memorial, rather than a formal dressed-up ceremony – so please feel free to wear your gardening clothes.

It was through Karen’s love, devotion, and care that many remember her kind presence on these Garden Party days. Ajahn Sudanto is planning on being in attendance for the event.

Anyone is welcome to join us beginning at 10:00 am. The monks will chant a blessing and dedicate merit to Karen shortly before the meal offering at about 10:45 am.

Meal Offering: 11:00 am (please feel free to bring a dish for the potluck style meal offering)

Garden Work: 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm (please also feel free to bring any extra garden tools for the day)

Tea: 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
