Description

Our next film screening will be on January 16th from 6-8pm. We will show the film The Dhamma Brothers. This movie is a documentary film released in 2007 about a prison meditation program at Donaldson Correctional Facility near Bessemer, Alabama.

After the film we will have a guest speaker who will tell us about a Japanese garden that is being planned for the state penitentiary in Salem. They are currently in their fundraising stage but are very close to their goal, which means ground will be broken hopefully in Spring of 2018.

We will be asking for a $5 donation to this event to help us cover our postage costs, and if you have any dictionaries, blank journals, or paper bags you don't need, feel free to bring those too. You are welcome to come by around 5pm to get a bit of a sampling of what we do every Tuesday night from 5-7pm.

Hope to see you on the 16th of January!
