The FFM First Day School obtained a rainbow PEACE flag from Common Street Spiritual Center in Natick, and attached it to the meetinghouse sign along Edmands Rd.  This replaces the faded rainbow PACE flag that hung for a long time on a wall inside.  The First Day School had a lesson on "Discernment" practicing what to do about some of the pictures and posters that were taken off the walls for painting, and one of our young ones suggested we should not only replace the faded flag, but fly it visibly outside the meetinghouse.  Job accomplished on June 11, 2017!
