Panchen Lama Birthday at Green Lake

TAW Board members will be organizing a small event to commemorate 27th Birthday of Panchen Rinpoche on Monday April 25.  We will gather at the entrance of the greenlake where we’ll set up a table and hand out “messaged” water bottle and juices to the lake walkers to raise public awareness about Panchen Lama’s abduction. We’ll then walk around the lake and hand flyer to the passerby. We’ll end the event with a small birthday cake celebration and candle light vigil at the stadium towards the south end of the lake.
Please try to show up at the event in WHITE T-Shirt
Venue:  Greenlake Park
Time : 4:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Date : April 25th.
Thank you
