Third Haven Hospitality Report Annual for 2019
Clerks: Susan Dickinson, Bill Schauer
The Hospitality Committee of Third Haven Monthly Meeting coordinates refreshments after the Rise of Meeting each First Day throughout the year. Official Committee members are Bill Schauer, Dolores Wack, Heidi Wetzel, and Mary Yancey but more importantly, ad hoc members are all 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. There are no formal committee meetings.
This year, Hospitality involved over 30 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 newcomers, and making sure the Common Room is as they found it before leaving. Thank you all—you make hospitality a success.
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, the Moving Up Day Picnic, and the annual new Members and Attenders luncheon. This year we will also be supporting the First Day School Open House on September 20th.
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. Providing hospitality is a gift and mostly a way to get to know each other and strengthen our community.
