Friends, the written version of the SCYM keynote by Paul Buckley has been posted on the SCYM website; it was a REALLY interesting talk on the testimonies! He has generously made this available for SCYM - please take a look!

 We will resume our general discussion of the topic of education.

Friends, Larry Marcotte tells me that so far 16 people have pledged a total of $43,200 towards the $100,000 we need to raise in capital for the challenge grant of $50,000. In two weeks! We haven't heard from everybody though. We are almost half-way. If we haven't heard from you, please email Larry to make a pledge towards the $100,000. We will only collect the money in the event that we decide to purchase, and actually make a deal, on the warehouse property. 
In addition, we have gotten a positive response from the Friends Meeting House Fund on our application for a mortgage, to be used in the event we decide to purchase the warehouse property. It is not a "yes" but a favorable response and a request for some more detailed information.

Friends, we are fortunate indeed that FCNL representatives will be in town and will be able to meet with us during our Work/Play Day. They will join us for pot luck at about 1:00 pm, and speak with us afterwards. Please join us.
You're invited to meet Mary Stata and Stephen Donahoe who are visiting from the Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL) in Washington, DC.
Mary and Stephen will provide an update on FCNL's work in Washington to peacefully prevent deadly conflict, and discuss why Representative Kay Granger is key to these efforts. They also look forward to learning about your interests and concerns.

Discussion with

Mary Stata, Legislative Associate for Peaceful Prevention of Deadly Conflict

Stephen Donahoe, Major Gifts Officer
