I want to shout out a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who helped with our hosting of Concord Quarterly Meeting on October 27th.  It came off beautifully!  Ginny Sutton's childrens' program, Cheryl's & Elson's hymn sing, all the wonderful food that was brought for lunch, the moving of tables and chairs, and the dish washers and clean up crews that helped move the daycare back into their space were all part of our amazing Quaker community.

Thank you!   Thank you!    Thank you!

Bruce Harrison, Co-clerk
