Third Haven Hospitality Report Annual for 2016/2017
Clerks: Susan Dickinson and Dona Sorce (outgoing)
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 by signing up on the sign-up sheet that is posted on the refrigerator in the Common Room. 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 special activities and celebrations throughout the year. This past year's events included the annual Christmas and Easter celebrations, and the Moving Up Day Picnic, the weekend gathering for the Friends General Conference Nominating Committee, and the Memorial Service for Frank Ziegler.
All members and attenders are encouraged to assist with weekly Hospitality by coming early to make coffee and set out food, to provide food, and stay after the Rise of Meeting to greet newcomers as well as help clean up.
