There will be a General Meeting for all members October 24th after latihan in the chapel at Spring Street Center. Please mark your calendars. I will see you there!
Sisters, I will put a reminder notice on the inside of the quiet room door nearest the restroom, but remember, we are sharing the restroom with the guests renting the house. We really need to wipe down any surfaces we have touched and sign the sheet that says we did it, for our own safety and that of our guests.

If You Haven’t Donated – Consider Your Donation a direct donation to Subud PNW
Your committee believes that all members should help contribute to our center and through it to the region. For those who haven’t yet contributed this year, we’re making the following offer:
Every contribution from anyone who hasn’t contributed this year will go to Subud PNW. These contributions will help Subud PNW to support, among other areas, the following:
Each year SPNW has relied on extra money from our annual kedjiwan gathering at the Menucha Conference Center to support the work of the region. Due to COVID-19 it has not been possible to hold this event for two years.
Our goal for 2021 is to have everyone contribute something toward the upkeep of our center and through it the region. Those who are already contributing monthly have already made their commitment. How about you?
If you give one time, that contribution will go directly to the region. If you can commit to giving monthly, each month a portion of your contribution will go to the region.
Future Expenses – Progress on fund raising to repairing the siding on the South side of our building.
Through September members have contributed $3,010. Combined with $3000 of the income received from our iTrips rentals we now have $6,010 saved for that project. We now need to raise an additional $15,990 before the project can begin.
Building Repairs Fund
We are grateful for members who already have contributed-over and above their regular contributions-to this fund.
iTrip bookings for the remainder of the year will be able to cover some of our costs, but we anticipate that we will need additional contributions from the members. Earmark these donations for the building fund.
We had 45 days of rentals in September bringing in rental income of approximately $4,196. This will be deposited in October after the income statement is finalized. From the income received, we will retire the remaining $1,000 of our debt to Subud PNW. We will then add an additional $3,000 to the Building Repairs Fund.
Donations continued their downward trend. September’s contributions were lowest of 2021. If you missed sending in your contribution in September, please consider increasing your donation in October.

Thanks to Ricardo Santos for installing the new sink in the bathroom adjacent to the men’s Latihan hall! What a difference it makes in the look and function of the room!
Menucha continues to support our efforts to meet there again in person. They have agreed to apply our deposit for 2021 to the gathering in 2022. Let’s all hold good thoughts for that possibility! The 2021 gathering will take place on Zoom.
During Tuesday and Sunday latihans, the bathroom just outside the quiet room is available for our use. Starting Sunday there will be sanitizing wipes available for after latihan, and also a sign-off sheet that verifies that the bathroom has been sanitized (i.e. all surfaces touched wiped down. This includes faucets, toilet flush handle, door handle inside and out, and the toilet seat.) If no one uses the restroom we still need to sign off so it’s clear that it is clean.
Four men helpers participated in a cleansing of Spring Street Center today, after the incident with disrespectful and partying renters. The house did not need a lot, after Debbie and Ricardo’s ongoing cleaning and cleansing as they go. Thank you to Jim, Paul, Elisha, and Abadeen for the cleansing, and to Debbie and Ricardo for their ongoing efforts.
