Fall Sioux Falls Buddhist Retreat in Planning Stage

Plans are moving ahead for a one day SD Buddhist Study Group Retreat this fall in Sioux Falls. There will need to be a reasonable charge to pay for rental of the Butterfly Rainbow Center unless someone has access to a nice space for free. Also, please go to this link to give your preference of a date. To vote, go to:http://micropoll.com/t/KEwPTZCIYo The concluding event would be meditation/dharma talk with the Sri Lankan Buddhist monks who come to Sioux Falls every third Sunday. Thanks!
