From John Schoonover: I will be playing in the Greensboro Philharmonia concert this Friday, May 4th at 7:30 PM. Because one of the pieces features organ, we will be performing at Christ United Methodist Church, 410 N. Holden. I hope to see you there!

From Anne and Hannah: Third Annual Spring Garden Party on Saturday, May 12th, from 2-4 pm (weather permitting) at our house, 1017 Lexington Ave.

We'd love to have you join us to celebrate Hannah's 37th birthday and Eliza's second birthday! Come to do some planting or just to hang out! We'll also be finishing up a mural on the shed in memory of our son Joseph.  

Bring gardening gloves and tools and any plants you want to share. Our wish list includes Lenten roses, lavender bearded irises (or any color other than dark purple), and plants that butterflies like (black-eyed Susans, purple coneflower (echinacea), gaillardia, butterfly weed (asclepias), milkweed). We also always love to plant more daffodils! 

Beverages and sweets provided.

Upcoming Events: Worship and Ministry Committee will be hosting a Quaker Tea on Saturday June 2nd. Quaker Teas help all of us, both those new to the meeting and long-time participants, learn more about Quaker faith and practice. We will be providing more details about content, but we hope everyone will save the date.

Query 5 Do we regularly attend our meetings for business, and are they held in a spirit of love, understanding, and forbearance? Do we seek the right course of action in humble submission to the Authority of Truth and in the patient search for a sense of unity under Divine guidance?

Don’t forget donations for First Friends Food Bank (please no boxed items such as pasta, because they attract bugs and other nasties). FEMAP would greatly appreciate donations of baby washcloths and adult toothpaste and toothbrushes, adult and baby shampoo, and hand towels
