Hanover Friends Meeting
As a faith community, Hanover Friends offered to help Revels North by managing the waste stream at their Summer Revels event on June 24, 2017. Under the direction of Penny Wright and assisted ably by the engineering of Tim McCosker, we worked throughout the afternoon and evening to RECYCLE as close to 100% of the waste generated. We built community among ourselves, did a little subtle outreach, and honored our commitment to the Kabarak Call of the Friends World Committee for Consultation to care for the earth.
The Field Reports from the Yearly Meeting's Inter-generational trip to live and worship with our Cuban Quaker sister and brothers are fascinating. The group's scribe, Abigail Adams (Storrs) paints a vivid picture of the everyday adventures of the teens and adults on the delegation. Go to neym.org/puente to read them! And please consider joining a delegation yourself somtime in the future!
Two carloads of Hanover Quakers joined hundreds of others at a peaceful "Accompaniment Rally" at Manchester NH's Federal Building on June 6th. Standing in the cold, drizzly weather, we listened to many inspiring speakers why it is important for ALL of us to stand with immigrants, regardless of their legal status, as the federal government pushes to find excuses, however flimsy, to deport the people who do the work of harvesting our fields, caring for our older adults, and nurturing our children. When a wage-earner is deported, her family is left broken.
About 30 (or more!) years ago, Bill Ballard planted trillum in our garden. Bill's wife Elizabeth was a founding member of Hanover Friends Meeting, and was active in the meeting for over 30 years. Even after she suffered a debilitating stroke, she attended meeting regularly, with the loving support of her husband Bill. Elizabeth died in 1992, at age 80. Bill Ballard was a renowned biologist and professor at Dartmouth College, and one of his many passions was flowers, especially wildflowers.
