This week's newsletter is going out earlier than usual so we can make this belated announcement. The annual Tri-County Picnic is happening this coming Firstday, 3/3/13, featuring our own Brad Stocker in the panel discussion. Details are posted on our calendar page and included here as follows:
A quick look at the calendar shows there are choices that must be made this weekend. From Friday evening through Firstday morning we are all invited to the retreat held by our Friends at Palm Beach Meeting.
If you won't be attending that, please join us Saturday afternoon at 2:00 at Laura Woodside's for a party to celebrate the upcoming marriage of Andrea and Warren.
Then on Firstday morning John Stevens will continue his series of discussions on the Queries. And after worship it's time for "eating meeting," so remember to bring a dish to share.
New Committees for 2013
The list of new committee membership has been posted to the members-and-attenders page of the website (login required). If it's too challenging to access it there and you need a copy, please reply to this email and one will be sent to you.
As a reminder, our tradition is that the first person listed for each committee will call the first meeting, at which a clerk will be selected for each committee. Then the committees will report to our business meeting each month as needed.
Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP)
Come one and all to a potluck celebration of the recent marriage of Jessica and Jeff. 7pm this Friday the 15th at the home of the Hershes. Click the link for details and directions.
And save the afternoon of Saturday the the 23rd for the other party in anticipation of the wedding of Andrea and Warren at Laura Woodside's. (And remember, we have been asked to bring something we have personally made for them. You have a week to get busy!)
