Monthly Archives: January 2017

January 29, 2017

It’s that time of the every-other-year again. The day on which we test candidates for Chair, Vice-Chair, Treasurer, Secretary and At-Large members of the local Dewan. If you have guidance that you might be a candidate for any of these positions, you may want to pretest, but our meeting is set for Sunday, January 29, 2017, after latihan. Presumably there will be food but you might be interested in providing something to share with your brothers and sisters. May the force be with you.

A hearty thank you goes out to our current Dewan:

Chair – Ramon
Vice-Chair – Abadeen Gunatilaka

Subud House Basement Cleaning Jan 15

Sunday January 15 after latihan we will be cleaning out the basement so the sewer line can be fixed on Jan 30.  If we have volunteers it won’t take a lot of time.  Please give Subud an hour or so that we can continue maintaining the house which maintains our inner lives.
