Tibetan Monks – visit postponed
March 13 - March 28$1 – $20
Sierra Friends of Tibet sadly announces the postponement of the Tibetan Monks from Gaden Shartse visit to the Grass Valley/Nevada City and San Juan communities. After a long discussion at our last meeting on Sunday, March 8th it was decided that the unknown risks of the current virus spreading to many countries and to the United States made it clear that we should protect the health of our community, the Tibetan Monks and all are volunteers from these unknown risks. Risks are higher when people gather in large groups. It is a quickly evolving situation and no one knows what will happen.
Sierra Friends of Tibet thanks the Banner Community Guild, all the business who was poised to assist us, the Union and KVMR, the home owners who were going to invite the Monks into their homes, the people who were going to make lunches and dinners for the Monks, and the community for their support. We appreciate your understanding and continued belief in our work to raise awareness of Tibet. We know the Tibetan Monks will return when these unknown risks are resolved.
