Our Meeting has been blessed with several gifts from members and attenders.
Pat Long has answered the call from the Peace and Social Concerns Committee of BYM in writing letters, often in the name of the Meeting, to our Congressional representatives, Senators, and to the local newspaper concerning nonviolence and peace in the Middle East. Pat is our representative to FCNL, freely gives out “War is Not the Answer” signs, and stands with the Vigil for Peace on the square in York every Friday at 4:30 pm as people are driving home from work.
We have the gift of children attending Meeting, which has created a need for a First Day School. A gift of lumber from Steve Stankowicz has made it possible for us to dream of a First Day School building. A First Day School Building Committee has been formed and we look forward to undertaking such a big project.
Ed and Fran Norton offered their gift of flute and harpsichord music at the Meeting House on New Years Eve as part of York’s First Night celebration. A CD of their music is available for $15, $5 of which is being donated to the First Day School Building Fund.
