Friends General Conference

Together we nurture the spiritual vitality of Friends

News & Announcements

The Center for Development in Central America is a clinic, Fair trade agricultural and lending cooperative, and cultural exchange program in Managua , Nicaragua. Ken Bordwell was the "sponsor" of this organization with Community Friends, but since his death a year ago I have not been diligent enough in communicating why Community Friends supports it.


Dearest friends! Thank you again so much for all your support since Ken's sudden death.  It has made all the difference in the world. I know so many are out there for me, so many have sent encouragement, and so many have helped in large and small ways, as I was able to identify needs.
Ken's memorial meeting will be at St. Peter in Chains Undercroft, 8th and Plum St.  Use the small 8th St entrance; there is another mass going on upstairs.

Wednesday Nov. 22 (the day before Thanksgiving) 10 AM to noon Chili and sandwiches will be available.
