Third Haven Hospitality Report Annual for 2015/2016
Clerks: Dona Sorce, Heidi Wetzel—outgoing, and Susan Dickinson—incoming
The Hospitality Committee of Third Haven Monthly Meeting coordinates refreshments after the Rise of Meeting each First Day throughout the year. Committee members are those individuals who volunteer to assist with this activity by signing up on the sign-up sheet that is posted on the refrigerator in the Common Room every two months. While there are no formal committee meetings per se, the Clerks communicate on a regular basis and meet as needed.
This year, Hospitality involved over 20 Third Haven Monthly Meeting members and attenders who continue to generously give of their time and talents in preparing coffee, setting a table with refreshments, greeting new comers, and making sure the Common Room is as they found it before leaving.
The Hospitality Committee works with other committees to support activities and events that engage the broader community and /or celebrate the membership. Examples include the George Fox Forum, the annual Christmas and Easter celebrations, and the Moving Up Day Picnic.
In an effort to decrease the amount of coffee being wasted with the use of the large coffee urns, the Committee switched to using smaller, thermal carafes. This change was facilitated by the donation of two coffee makers from Bill Schauer and Susan Dickinson.
