Spring Bulletin Now Available

The Spring LEYM Bulletin is now available here. Like recent Spring issues, it looks ahead to our Annual Meeting, on July 30 – August 2. This year, however, the Annual Meeting is virtual, which has led to many changes in the program and how we will share the experience. The Bulletin explains how meeting via Zoom will work, describes the program for children and youth, provides the full schedule, and previews the four workshops. Unlike in past years, there is no registration form in the Bulletin itself, as registration will happen entirely online.

Other contents of this Bulletin include a message from our clerk, reports from our representatives to Friends organizations, LEYM Friends’ responses to the COVID-19 pandemic expressed through poetry and art, and much more. Please note that fewer printed copies are being sent to monthly meetings, on the assumption that Friends are not gathering there for the time being; downloading the Bulletin (as a pdf file) gives Friends an alternative way to enjoy it.
