This year (2561/2017) the end of the rainretreat will be on October the 5 (seemingly for all Nikayas/groups). Till the Anapanasati-day, one month later (end of the second Vassa-time), the Buddha allowed the Monks who kept the Vassa to receive extra Robes.

This time is used usually in buddhist countries to visit monasteries or invite monks into ones home for making offering.

Maybe a situation for those not so familar to get a little involved,visiting a nearby monastery or single monks and nuns, and a reminder for other who might have forgot on the possibility.
