As a result of your gifts and pledges, we are moving forward to complete the kitchen. Appliances (refrigerator, dishwashers, microwave) were delivered today. Tiles for the kitchen backsplash (graciously donated by Ann Sachs) were completed and grouted, and they look beautiful with the cabinets and the countertops.
The new trash and recycling building is up, and waiting for a roof.
We got exit lights yesterday, and things are moving forward for other hanging lights as well. The new large mulberry paper globes from a renowned artist in New York just got installed, and they are beautiful. Every day brings more exciting changes.
In addition to regular Wednesday work parties, we can use your help anytime that we’re on schedule and not on retreat. Just let Ikuo know beforehand so we can count you in for lunch. We sit zazen in the Sodo from 11:30am to 12:20pm, with lunch served at the 85th house at 12:30.
