Valley Friends are enjoying second hours on Quakerism. This has been a good experience for both seasoned Friends and those new to meeting. We considered the topic of poverty and responses to it at our annual Frugal Meal. Proceeds will go to Right Sharing of Resources and the local food bank. The young and young at heart participated in bowling for Big Brothers and Big Sisters. This event is a highlight of our year and gives us opportunity to interact with our young people outside of Meeting. The meeting room has been freshly painted and acoustical panels are currently being installed. It is our hope this will make Meetings for Worship more meaningful for those with hearing difficulty.
