Thanksgiving Dinner and Apple Pressing

Sunday, Oct 9th

Join us for our annual Thanksgiving Celebration! All are warmly invited. This will replace our regular Sunday Open House.

The leaves are changing, the air is crisp, and the trees are full of apples! Celebrate the abundance of the season by joining us for an apple-pressing Thanksgiving at Dorje Denma Ling on Sunday, October 9th. Press your apples for juice, and enjoy a potluck Thanksgiving dinner (DDL will provide turkey and mashed potatoes, you bring a side dish or dessert) while mingling with family, children, friends, and neighbours.

Apple-pressing will run from 1 pm to 5 pm; dinner served at 3 pm. Come for the whole afternoon or just a part! Even if you don’t have any apples, please bring a container or two so we can share the abundance of juice!

Please RSVP for dinner by calling 902.657.9085 or email
