New Quaker Parenting Facebook Group

To continue building the connections made at PYM this year by folks who were raising and teaching kids, Beth Anderson has started a Facebook group.
If you are someone who uses Facebook and wants to participate, we'd love to have you.  I imagine it being a place where we share upcoming Quaker events we're planning to attend, where we can invite Friends/families to fun stuff, connect over problems and ideas.

Julie Harlow visited Santa Monica Quaker Meeting last Sunday July 27 where she gave a slide presentation and led a discussion about Friends House Moscow, the political situation in Russia and the Quaker response.  She also sold some Russian crafts to raise money for Friends House Moscow, a small international Quaker non-profit operating in Russia since 1996.  She has traveled in the USSR and Russia since 1984, is one of the founders of Friends House Moscow and is still active on its international board.
