Meeting News

Posted by admin on Aug 13, 2010 in Meeting Events, Meeting News, spiritual enrichment |

Dear Friends,

Coming up at Meeting this week, we will be launching our 2010-2011 adult Spiritual Enrichment program with a brainstorming session during the second hour, after rise of meeting. Just as we did last year, we will review the program offerings of the previous year and offer the committee suggestions for the coming year’s offerings. Please give some thought to your experiences with our last year’s spiritual enrichment program, and to what you would like to see, or be willing to help present, in the coming year.

Our Meeting’s planned daylong retreat with Dan Snyder has been postponed. But we will still have an opportunity to visit with him, along with many other Friends from the Swannanoa Valley Meeting, on 8/28, when our Meeting will be hosting a potluck picnic. Festivities begin at 5 p.m. Please contact Katherine K for more information.

The next day, 8/29, after rise of meeting, we will have a potluck to welcome Edie Patrick as a member of our Meeting. Her transfer from Foxfire was approved at Meeting for Business last week. Hopefully there will be lots of leftovers from the previous evening.

Jim C and Alan R will be collecting towels and bed linens to donate to Homeward Bound, the umbrella organization that seeks to serve the needs of Asheville’s burgeoning homeless population. If you have any extras lurking in your closets, please bring them to meeting, or contact Jim or Alan to arrange pickup.

Also remember that we have a collection box in the foyer for non-perishable food items to be donated to Manna Food Bank. The need is ongoing, and so is our donation drive.

Best wishes, Steve
