NEWS & UPCOMING PROGRAMS:


“WHAT’S GOING ON AT QUAKER CENTER?”

You may have noticed several job openings at Quaker Center. A number of Friends have asked, “Why?

Co-Directors Bob Fisher, Susan Wilson and their daughter Ali, after much soul-searching, have made the decision to return to their home, friends and family in Vermont. Bob and Susan say, “It has been a truly dramatic and rewarding 3 years for us in the Santa Cruz mountains. We are so happy to have met, worked with and befriended so many Western, Eastern, Central and International Friends!”

Meanwhile, after 5 years as the indomitable QC Maintenance Technician, Jesse Keesaw and his wife Michelle have decided to take their growing family (Malaya, Quinn and ­­­­­­­­Callum) and move on to a new chapter in their lives! Jesse has been an invaluable asset to the QC team, often saving us tens of thousands of dollars through ingenuity, hard work and a determined and inspiring commitment to simplicity and thriftiness.

The board of the Ben Lomond Quaker Center thanks both families for their service and wishes them love and Light and luck! They will be sorely missed!

(We hope to have announcements, very soon, about our efforts to “replace” these wonderful staff members.)
