Merit Makers & Side Notes
Thanks go out this week to Vivian Magarino-Gomez for treating us to yummy food every Sunday Tea - the last Sunday of each month. We all love walking out of the gompa after the teachings to be welcomed by tasty selections prepared by Vivian. It's a great to take the time to share food and conversation with those we may know well and others we just met! Thanks to all of you who support Vivian whether in set up or clean up. You are all appreciated!
