Coming up at Meeting

Posted by admin on Aug 26, 2010 in Local Social Action, Meeting Events, Meeting News, Our Friends |

Dear Friends,

This weekend is a time of food and fellowship as we join with Swannanoa Valley Friends for a potluck picnic on Saturday evening, and then celebrate two important milestones after rise of Meeting on Sunday.

Festivities will begin on Saturday at 5 p.m at the Meetinghouse as we gather with Friends from Swannanoa Valley Meeting for what we hope will be the first of many potluck get-togethers. As usual, Friends are encouraged to bring healthy, home-made offerings, and label the ingredients with a concern for those folks who have food sensitivities.

After rise of Meeting on Sunday, we will have a joint celebration of the recent marriage of Laura Maynard and Doug Lane and the transfer of membership of our now-longtime Friend Edie Patrick. Leftovers are likely but should not be taken for granted.

Also, Friends have the opportunity to contribute to the well-being of those less fortunate in our larger Asheville community in several ways.
First, we have our ongoing Manna Food Bank collection box in the foyer, waiting to be filled with canned goods and other non-perishable food items. Second, Friend Jim C. is collecting bed linens, blankets, and towels to be donated to A-Hope, Asheville’s primary access point for support services for homeless people. And third, Friend Susan O. is helping folks who are transitioning from homelessness to independent living by collecting small appliances, dishes, and tableware. If you have larger items such as furniture to donate, please contact her in advance. All other items can be brought to Meeting – along with your contributions to our weekend festivities!

Best wishes,
Steve
