Eastern Sierra News for June 15, 2024





sherpaLast October, 16 friends and family from the Eastern Sierra had the opportunity to trek to the village of Mono Basin’s Wangdowa Sherpa in the foothills of the Himalaya.  We would like to invite you to a free slide show and Nepali dinner on SUNDAY, FEB. 26 at 6pm at the Lee Vining Community Center.  Wangdowa, a professional guide and excellent chef, will cook up some tasty lentils, rice and tandoori chicken.  Please bring a side dish or non-alcoholic drinks to share.  Tableware provided. Wangdowa will present a short slide talk about Nepal, the Sherpa people, our trek and his hopes of establishing a  school/clinic in his village.  Members of the trek will share their memories, mementos and music from our time with the Sherpa people. 
Everyone welcome, no RSVP needed, bring a friend!  Turn right at the Mono Cone, then first left and up one block , to find the Community Center in Lee Vining.
