KYWC News: October 2023

Happy Autumn 🙂

A big thank you to everyone who attended our Annual Member Meeting in September. In addition to discussing Center business, we recognized our Board members and member volunteers for their service in 2023.

Special Thanks

Special thanks to everyone who donated at the Center and through our Facebook fundraisers to offset the cost of two upcoming expensive projects: repairing the leaking back and porch roofs and graveling the two parking areas. The estimated expense for this necessary work is approximately $13,000. The four therapeutic sound bath experiences with Roxanne Turturro raised $720 in donated funds.  Thank you, Roxanne and attendees.

On the September 23rd Autumn Equinox Ritual Gathering, the Northern Rivers Grove designated KYWC as their charity of the month. $35 in donated funds was collected.  Thank you for your support.

Your Cup of Tea

If you enjoy a nice cup of tea at the Yoga Center- would you please donate a box or two of your favorite teas for yourself and to share with others?  Also, if you have unwanted or expired tea bags, please give them to Steve to use for assembling prayer bundle offerings. Thanks.
