GPQM Spring Gathering May 11, 2019

Green Pastures Quarterly Meeting (GPQM) Spring Gathering will be held at the Michigan Friends Center on Saturday, May 11, 2019, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

This gathering will include a meeting for worship for the conduct of business in which we’ll consider a proposal for a new structure for GPQM and a new slate of officers.

The program after lunch, which will be around 12:30, will be a talk on the 25-year history of the Center, followed by a spring wildflowers walk around the Friends Lake property led by a naturalist. We’re hoping for a day in which we’ll discern the future of our Quarter and spend time in strengthening our spiritual bonds as Quakers, surrounded by the beauty of Friends Lake.

Morning snacks and a catered lunch will be provided. Please e-mail Raelyn Joyce at raejoyce10 at gmail.com if you’re planning to come, so the right amount of food can be prepared (with heartfelt thanks to Richard Tucker and Ann Arbor Friends).
