Wat Yarnee to Host Conference of Dhammayut Order of Buddhism
in U.S.A.June 26-28th,2015
The Wat Yarnee Rangsee Buddhist Temple will host the 31st Annual General Council Conference of the Dhammayut Order of Buddhism from June 26th to 28th,2015. The International Conference has been rotated annually to different states.
The gathering in a typical year will bring together 130 high ranking monks from 57 Buddhist Temples throughout the Unites States, and includes the policy setting officers of the Order, high ranking monks from Thailand and Europe,and the Thai Ambassador.An event of this magnitude will entail major expenses for Wat Yarnee Rangsee Temple such as for housing the Monks from many nations,so we humbly ask our members to consider hosting Benefit Events at the Temple for these following expenses
The Temple will be holding a major fund raising Dinner/Dance event in Fairfax,Va. this October featuring a raffle. We will begin selling raffle tickets in a few weeks.The Grand Prize at the raffle will be a round trip ticket from Dulles Airport to Thailand.The majority of the members of Wat Yarnee Rangsee Temple are of Thailand origin.
With this in mind we ask that you consider donating whatever you can. Our Temple is a non-profit organization so your donation would be tax deductible.
Please help us to meet our goal.
