Buddhist Volunteers Needed for Stanford Hospital

Central Incense Brazier, Chua Giac Minh


After praying here this morning, our CEO took note of the following appeal for volunteers.  Two days before, he had observed and spoken with a gentleman who had scaled the fence of the Pagoda's grounds.  He acted out of concern for the safety of its monks, nuns, and sanctity.  Fortunately, the gentleman and his family simply came from Modesto to purchase tofu from the temple and ask the nuns to pray for his daughter, who is recovering from surgery at Stanford Hospital.

East Palo Alto Bayshore Rotary Club at the YMCA 2/26/14

DSBE's Director of Public Relations arrived an hour late to yesterday's Rotary Club meeting at the YMCA, which had begun at 7:00 p.m..
 
 
 
Luckily, he arrived in time to listen to the speaker, a former resident of East Palo Alto who lived in a house on Donohoe Street in 1963, talk about Rotary International's efforts to eradicate polio in Nigeria.  The speaker was also a former District Governor for our Rotary district.
 
Rotary International, along with the World Health Organization, the Center for Disease Control, UNICEF, and increasingly the Gates Foundation, has been committed to the global eradication of polio.

Mi Pueblo Foods of San Jose's East Palo Alto store pays cash for recyclable bottles and cans, as shown by the receipts in these photos.
 
They have been legally obliged to do so by CalRecycle (the State of California's Department of Conservation, Division of Beverage Container Recycling) since December 21, 2012.  However, very few people in East Palo Alto or our neighboring citys and towns know this.
 
This is in large part due to Mi Pueblo's refusal to comply with CalRecycle's regulations.
