Wesak Fair 2009!

2 May 2009 - 3:19am Comments Off

Kechara House celebrates Wesak Day 2009 in style with the Kechara Wesak Fair this coming May 9. This year’s events start from 10am with a variety of activities including Dzambala bathing, a blood donation drive, a pet adoption campaign and a mini bazaar at the playground adjacent to KH 1.

All day long, devotees can make offerings of candles, khatas, pearls and flowers at the main prayer hall. Pantai Hospital will be running the blood donation drive in Buddha Oasis while the Pet Rescue crew have adorable dogs and cats for adoption. If you have a pet, do bring it along for ear cleaning and nail clipping services offered by our veterinarian Dr Hank & associates.

This year, Kechara House will also give out vouchers for every donation made, which can be redeemed for delicious food, useful household items, games or potted plants at the Wesak bazaar. Vouchers are available now from KH2 and other departments.
