March Weekend Service Retreat

Like Spring, Serenity Ridge is coming back to life, and volunteers can help us reach full flower by joining us Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning, March 26th and 27th, by participating in our upcoming service retreat.

Volunteers are a critical part of keeping Serenity Ridge looking and performing at its best, and participants can earn $10 per service hour that can be applied to any upcoming Serenity Ridge retreat. The end of March can be a bit tricky as regards the weather, but we are hoping that Saturday the 26th allows us to spruce up the flower beds, wash some windows, and give a good deep-cleaning to our Kunzang Khang entrance and dining hall, among other projects. And on Sunday morning, we will raise the new flags to bless the Serenity Ridge entranceway, as well as the pinnacle of Gompa Hill.

Lunch and dinner on the 26th and breakfast on the 27th will be provided, as well as overnight rooms and perhaps even a fun evening around the firepit. Serenity Ridge greatly welcomes your offering of service , and we hope that you will consider joining us, which you can do by registering below.
