Newcomer Recognition Day
by Outreach Committee
The Outreach Committee commends those who’ve done so much to welcome newcomers to the meeting. It makes the meeting a warm and welcoming place for visitors and new attenders, and, in the case of visitors from other meetings, strengthens our ties to Quakers around the world. We also thank the committees who provide greeters each Sunday. Please take a moment to thank them when you get to meeting. We invite other members and attenders to join in welcoming newcomers, and to be in particular on the lookout for visitors at the beginning of the fall, when we see so many new people at our neighboring universities and colleges.
The Outreach Committee will be making a special effort to invite visitors from the colleges to meeting on Sunday October 2, and will be providing enhanced hospitality on that Sunday, complete with an “ice cream social”. We also plan to recognize those who are new to meeting this past year as part of a “newcomer recog-nition day”. Please let members of the committee know if you have suggestions for this special event.
