What's New at Stony Run

An Introduction to Quakerism:  Quaker Approaches to Finding One’s Way, Beginning From Within.  This is the second of five sessions, running through November 1.  See the flyer (salmon-colored paper) for details about this introduction to Quaker spirituality.  During this series childcare will also be available for ages 6 to 12; the older children should first sign in at the Roberts Room (on the lower level) and then proceed to Room 203 (upstairs, in the classroom addition).

Saturday, October 17, at 1 pm:  A Friendly Hike, sponsored by the Community, Care & Clearness Committee.  Looking for a chance for conversation and fellowship in a different setting?  Missing Camp Catoctin?  We will meet at Cromwell Valley Park at 1 pm by the Nature Education Center, beside the parking lot.  Use the 2nd park entrance. Families and dogs welcome! 

Saturday, October 24, at 7:30 pm:  The Todd Marcus Jazz Quintet comes to Stony Run.  Tickets are available on the Meeting’s website or via the meetinghouse office.  Proceeds benefit Stony Run’s community-building work.  Flyers are on the hall table and in the October Newsletter.

Friends have asked for recommendations about reputable organizations assisting refugees, wishing to support such work.  See the flyer (light pink paper) on the hall table for a statement of guidance from the Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL).

Friends School classes in Meeting for Worship at Stony Run:  Each week, classes of Friends School students come into our meeting room for periods of worship.  The school would appreciate having Friends from Stony Run attend, holding the students in the light.  See the October schedule (turquoise paper) on the hall table.

Photo Gallery:  CCC (the Community, Care & Clearness Committee) is updating the photo gallery, and your help is needed.  The committee has two objectives: to acquire missing photos of active members and attenders, and to replace outdated photos.  As long as the weather is fair, Michael Boardman will take photos after simple lunch on some First Days; the weekly silent announcements will give the dates.  Not everyone can be available when Michael and his camera are ready; if that is true for you, we hope you will bring or send a recent photo of yourself or your family (not larger than 4x6, please).  You can leave your photo in CCC’s mail cubby or mail it to the office.

2016 Scull Studio calendars are here!  A small number of these simple, beautiful calendars are available for purchase without advance order.  They are on the downstairs literature sales table.
Weekly gentle Yoga classes are held Wednesday at 10 am in the meeting room.  The only cost is a suggested donation to Stony Run of $5 per week.  Please bring your own mat.  Contact Martha McLaughlin with any questions.

Bakers are needed for a Sweet and Savory reception following Stony Run’s annual musical evening, on Saturday, October 24.  Help us make this evening a success by baking a treat.  Use your favorite recipe or choose one of ours.  Please contact Rebecca Snyder if you can help.  

When you are grocery shopping, please remember to also shop for the CARES food pantry.  Your donations of non-perishable food may be left in the upstairs hallway or downstairs by the rear staircase.
Social Order Box:  Donations today support Amnesty International USA.  The Social Order Box stands in the hallway, next to the Library entrance; make checks payable to Stony Run Friends Meeting, with ‘S.O. Box’ on the memo line.

Want to order 2016 Motto Calendars, perhaps to give as gifts?  Contact the Meeting office to request a pdf of the order form.  [The Meeting office will not be compiling a group order.]
