 Dear Clerks of PQM Monthly Meetings,

 I’m writing to ask you to share information about an innovative project that could be of help to your members and attenders, especially those with leadings and/or ministries.   


Philadelphia Quarter will hold a Meeting for Worship with Attention to Business at Unity Monthly Meeting on Friday evening, September 26, 2014 at 6:30PM (Worship) with discussion of the Quarter's business items to follow from 7:00-9:00PM.  All are welcome to attend.  Unity Monthly Meeting is located at Unity and Waln Streets in the Frankford section of Philadelphia.  Documents to be used at the Meeting will be uploaded to the space below this announcement.


Dear Friends from Philadelphia Quarter,

We are writing to see if you have one morning a week to read with children at our partner elementary school near Historic Fair Hill in Fairhill, North Philadelphia.

Five of us from three Quaker Meetings go together each Thursday morning by carpool and bus.

We sit with one child at a time and read aloud or listen to the child read to us.  The children are lovely, eager, happy to have an adult’s attention and encouragement for 20 minutes.
