Note: This page describes the organizational structure of Piedmont Friends Fellowship. Piedmont Friends Yearly Meeting is organized independently.
The Piedmont Friends Fellowship evolved from a quarterly meeting of NC Yearly Meeting-FUM held in the fall of 1968 at Quaker Lake Conference Center. The quarterly meeting clerk, Claude Shotts of Chapel Hill Monthly Meeting, suggested that the particular needs of unprogrammed meetings in this region might better be met by a separate organization. Among several concerns, it was clear that the (FUM) yearly meeting was unable to consider a Friends' response to the continued prosecution of the war in Vietnam. John Hunter from Durham Meeting was asked to organize such a meeting.
Piedmont Friends Fellowship (PFF) is a collective of 19 Friends (Quaker) Meetings and Worship Groups in North Carolina and nearby areas that gathers for worship and fellowship in the spirit of Friends' quarterly meetings.
