ANNUAL REPORT OF THE HOSPITALITY COMMITTEE
THIRD HAVEN FRIENDS MEETING NINTH MONTH 2013
Many thanks go out to everyone who so enthusiastically support the hospitality of Third Haven Meeting. We've had large groups partaking in our coffee and treats after meeting for worship, although attendance slowed down over the summer months. We have enjoyed many delicious and nutritious contributions to hospitality for sharing after worship.
Our committee has lost some of its members because of other commitments, but we have also added some new members. Continuing members are: Mary Coady, Helen Womack, Beth Mufson, along with co-clerks Dona Sorce and Heidi Wetzel. Others who have joined us are: MaryAnn Hillier, Dawn Atwater, and Mary Yancy. Special thanks go to Winslow Womack who graciously and enthusiastically helped out when help was needed. Also thank you to Cathy Thompson, John Schreiner, and others who jumped in and helped when we were in a pinch. We encourage friends and attenders to sign up on the refrigerator if they wish to assist at any time.
Our sign-up sheets on the refrigerator have been broken down into 3 parts, to make helping out easier. One can sign up for setting up before meeting for worship, or cleaning up after hospitality, or bring some refreshments, or all three. Any help is welcome.
May 19th we hosted a luncheon for Southern Quarter. On June 2nd, we celebrated Moving-Up Day. We honor our Quaker youth for their completion of another year of achievement and growth. The hospitality committee provided lemonade and fried chicken for both events. The menu was well supplemented with main dishes, salads and fruit from the kitchens of our Friends and attenders.
We all have enjoyed the First Birthdays celebrations and are grateful for everyone who brings the birthday cakes. We thank all the volunteers who bring a birthday cake for the First Sunday of every month.
The budget for this year was $850 which seemed to be sufficient and we are not asking for an increase for the following year.
There is always an opportunity to enjoy one another by participating in Hospitality and all are welcome.
