Memorial Minutes

Traditionally, when a valued member of a meeting dies, a member of the Ministry and Counsel Committee, the clerk, or a close friend of the person writes a memorial minute. Typically, it contains a brief biography of the Friend with special emphasis on his or her activities among Quakers. It may be a few paragraphs to two pages long. When approved by the monthly meeting, it becomes part of the permanent records of the meeting. Memorial minutes sent to the yearly meeting’s Publications & Archives Committee are printed in the Annual Records.
