KYWC May 2023 News and Events

Hello Friends, Happy May!,

Here’s what’s going on at the Center:

  • Yoga classes, Healing Sunday, Drumming, the Chanting Workshop, a Therapeutic Sound Healing Bath, and the Spring Blooms Workshop. See the schedule below.
  • Several local businesses and donors have generously gifted us much-needed supplies and soil for our community garden. Next week, WalMart volunteers will be helping us fill and ready the beds for planting. More info to come. Interested in being part of this project? Contact Steve at the Center for more info.
  • Denise’s Memorial Bench has arrived. It will be installed near the Labyrinth. Thank you to everyone who donated.


Would you help us “Gravel the Ground”? Our main parking area and driveway are in desperate need of gravel. Currently, the parking area is mostly grass and dirt (often mud!) and visitors are confused about where to park because only the middle area has a bit of gravel remaining. This affects all of us! As you can imagine, this is an expensive project (estimate: 3.2 K). We appreciate any amount you give. In order for our vehicles to sufficiently pack down the gravel before the next plowing season, it has to be spread soon.

Please donate at the Center or here on Facebook. Thank you for your generosity.
