What's New

You are invited to join a field trip at 1:45 pm on Sunday, February 25 to see three exhibits on Syrian refugees at the American Swedish Historical Museum. The field trip is organized by CHFM’s Refugee Support Working Group. After seeing the exhibits, participants are invited to have an early dinner together at the Lebanese restaurant Manakeesh Café & Bakery in West Philadelphia.

Admission to the museum is free.

Dinner at Manakeesh at 4420 Walnut St. is estimated to cost from $15 to $25 per person.

Due to the high level of interest, there will be two groups meeting at different times but discussing the book Waking Up White by Debby Irving, on the same schedule. One group will meet on Sunday, 9-10am; the other on Tuesday, 1-2pm. The first Sunday meeting is planned for March 11, the first Tuesday meeting for March 13. The first meeting of both groups will be held at the meetinghouse.

Public

Each committee of Chestnut Hill Friends Meeting produces an annual report of the work and aspirations of the committee.  The committee annual reports for 2018 are posted here as they are presented.
