Mark Your Calendar! – Picnic with Beulah Missionary Baptist Church

Saturday, June 17 at Cincinnati Friends Meeting

1:00-3:30 PM

Ministry and Counsel is hosting a picnic with the Beulah Missionary Baptist Church. CFM members/attenders will provide hot dogs, hamburgers, veggie versions and fried chicken, drinks and desserts. We are planning for 50 people. You may choose donate items listed on the signup sheet in the meetinghouse, on the online form (available Monday - Friday), or make a financial contribution toward the Committee's purchase of the main proteins. Beulah will bring side dishes; both congregations will offer desserts.  We also need help with other tasks that day including set-up, grilling, food management, clean-up and take-down. We hope to have the new tent up and will have a variety of activities for all ages.

Why are there sometimes pink ribbons in our woods?

Throughout the year pink marking ribbon is used on the property by the Native Plant Initiative to designate areas where invasive control is taking place. Currently, the group is also designating trees that will become a labeled representative of their species with the same pink ribbon. Trees are a valuable part of all of our lives. Trees create the oxygen we breathe, grow the food we eat, provide us with shade on hot days, and beautify our homes and neighborhoods. Tree identification is one of the first steps in appreciating this incredible group of woody plants that impact our lives so profoundly.

Registration is Now Open for the 1652 Quaker Country Trip April 10-19, 2024

If you’ve ever dreamed of walking Pendle Hill, visiting Swarthmoor, experiencing where George Fox was inspired or relaxing in the cradle of Quakerism, consider traveling with YOUR meeting next April to Lancashire and the Lake District of England. Limited to 15, the trip will include walking hillsides likely in wet weather, but also a few days to resettle into a new time zone and explore London. We will be taking trains and traveling by minibus.

The Quaker tour will be led by Wendy Hampton, a Britain Yearly Meeting local development worker and her husband, Ben Pink Dandelion, a professor of Quaker Studies at Birmingham University, who directs the Woodbrooke Quaker Centre for Research and has written widely on Quakerism. 

Travelers will make their own plane reservations. Outside of airfare, food/drink in London and personal extras, we expect the trip to cost about $1500 per person based on meeting our maximum of 15.

For more information, pick up a copy of the brochure in the meetinghouse or contact Cathy Barney,
