CHFM Bulletin: Outcomes, outlooks, and books

Chestnut Hill Friends Meeting

Bulletin, 9 May 2013


Here are several announcements, opportunities and events that didn't make the May newsletter.

Plant swap outcomes

Many Friends were able to thin out excesses from their gardens by bringing plants to give away last Sunday, and many went home with new plants for their gardens. On top of all that, free-will donations to KISTA, the trust Elizabeth Walmsley and others set up to aid the Nepali refugee community, netted $353!

May Forum

The Forum Committee reports that the May Forum, scheduled for Sunday, 12 May, has been cancelled. The June forum, on 9 June, is the annual book forum, and is the last forum of the season.

Friendly 8s group for current events

If you enjoy discussing current events and politics, some of us are starting up a Friendly 8’s group to meet monthly over snacks or a potluck dinner, to share perspectives, interesting ideas, and thoughts in general about what’s happening currently in the world. If you're interested, please contact Judy Morgan,, 267-385-5049
