Sunday October 1 is World Quaker Day. COME see what Quakers are doing around the world 

Your image of Quakers may be from the box of oats or from famous depictions like Gary Cooper in the award-winning movie “Friendly Persuasion,” but Quakers are right here in our own community as well! The nearest active group is the Wilton Quaker Meeting at 317 New Canaan Road in Wilton

World Quaker Day at Wilton Quaker meeting will feature a talk by Steve Whinfield, a member of the Friends Committee on National Legislation. FCNL is a national organization, founded in 1943 to lobby on behalf of issues related to the Quaker testimonies of peace, equality, simplicity, community and integrity. The talk will start at 11:45 AM on Sunday October 1 at the Wilton Quaker Meeting; 317 New Canaan Rd, Wilton CT.
