Preparing for Amma's Visit

Join in the excitement and fun of preparing the M. A. Center San Ramon for Amma’s arrival. We will clean and scrub, sweep and weed, move chairs and bleachers, turn a warehouse into a dining hall and decorate, and take part in the cultural program rehearsals.

Come and join the many volunteers for some or all of these seva (selfless service) days.

Saturday and Sunday, May 17th and 18th, 9:30 am - 5:30 pm

Saturday and Sunday, May 24th and 25th, 9:30 am - 5:30 pm

We have appropriate work for everyone, including outdoor projects and lighter indoor jobs. Lunch and chai are provided, as well as a sense of satisfaction from participating in this part of Amma's 2014 summer visit.
