Sojun’s Birthday Party

On Saturday, July 20, we’re having a party to celebrate Sojun’s 90th birthday!
The party will begin at 11:30 a.m. (right after the lecture), with food, live music, and a few offerings of appreciation and humorous reminiscing about our beloved abbot.
BZC will provide main dishes, birthday cake, and beverages. If you would like to bring a signature side dish to round out the offering, please contact Maria Winston (mariawinston@ or Laurie Senauke (lauriesenauke@
Note that we will not be having the usual early program that Saturday—rather, we’ll start with work period at 8:30. (There will, however, be informal zazen at 6:00 a.m.)

The party will also feature exhibits at various locations around BZC representing aspects of the Thousand Hands History Project.

We will also be offering an all-new, long-sleeved BZC logo T-shirt and everyone’s favorite BZC aprons (see illustrations in our previous newsletter) for $25 each. If you would like to preorder a T-shirt and/or an apron, please contact Laurie Senauke for details.
