Wilton Quaker Meeting hosted a remembramce event at our meetinghouse on Deceember 8, 2018. There were five speakers who spoke of their loved ones lost to gun violence and the actions we can take to prevent such deaths in the future. About one hundred people were in attendance for this very moving event.
Quakers believe that there is something of the divine spirit in every human being. From this emanates the testimonies or principles that we try to live by. Among those are:
Simplicity, focusing on what is truly important and letting other things fall away;
Quakers had a booth at the recent Sono Arts Festival in Norwalk CT.
Friends from Wilton Quaker Meeting were in Newtown to support this important work by the students of Parkland and Sandy Hook Promise.
On July 15, 2017, we had our first celebration of our 75-year anniversary. We had a wonderful party that included music, poetry, food, dancing, yoga, and a talk on the history of the Meeting. We were very happy to be joined in the celebration by several old friends. Stephanie Kim of the News Times reported on the event.

The First Day School Committee and Wilton Quaker Meeting are delighted to let you know that we are offering a new place for children, appropriately, in the heart of meeting for worship.
