On Saturday September 23, on a beautiful late summery evening, sangha and friends gathered to celebrate our new entry garden and renovated approach to the temple with art, music, food, and a silent auction to benefit the garden fund. Generous donors offered fifty works, ranging from images of the Buddha to ceramics, scrolls, photographs, and a performance of African drumming, to benefit the Zen Center.

There is still some artwork available if you are interested in bidding. Details on request.
