We celebrated Rosetta Graham’s 50th anniversary as a convinced Friend with cake and messages of gratitude at simple lunch this summer. Known to Friends for her work with children who are victimized by violence, we are blessed to have Rosetta in our midst.
At the end of September, we hosted a celebration and farewell party for four stalwarts of our community. Anne and David Greene as well as Miriam Green have all recently moved to Friends House in Sandy Spring while Louise Williams has moved to Broadmead. Their contributions to our Meeting and service to the community are far too many to tell here. We will miss them terribly but are reassured to know that they are not far.
We were fortunate to have been chosen to host the FGC Traveling Ministries Committee who held their meetings the second weekend of January, 2008. In exchange for hosting the committee, our Meeting gained the benefit of their wisdom and insights into how we might strengthen the Meeting community.
