For your information, next Sunday we have a speaker, Audrey E. Kitagawa, who will speak on “Sharing Compassion and Loving Kindness.” I hope you will all come beginning at 10 a.m. After her talk her non-denominational group “Light of Awareness” is providing lunch. This group is so impressive. They are here today and are cleaning the windows and cleaning the social hall so it will be all nice for Ms. Kitagawa when she comes. And this is not a small group. Audrey Kitagawa is the daughter of long time member Yoshiko Kitagawa. Thank you and hope you will be able to make it.
