October 2011 News from Ben Lomond Quaker Center
Quaker Center’s website has a new look and feel. We now have online registration and a new blog! Check out the new photos and get all the information you need and register online for all our upcoming programs: To Be Broken and Tender with Margery Post Abbott and Kathy Hyzy from Sept. 30 – Oct. 2nd., John Calvi’s, The Goodness Workshop from November 4th-6th, and our two December programs, the Music and Dance Weekend from December 2nd-4th and the Year-end Retreat, from December 29- January 1, co-led by the Runyans, Janet Leslie and Jim Anderson.
Quaker Center in the early fall is blessed with delightful weather and glorious blue skies all day long. We recently enjoyed the youthful energy from a brief visit with the Woolman Semester students who stayed here during their food intensive. We are grateful to San Jose Friends who expressed their enthusiasm for supporting youth by offering two scholarships for young people to attend a Quaker Center workshop. Please remember that Quaker Center will not turn away anyone who cannot pay even the most subsidized rate on our sliding scale, so please don’t let cost be an obstacle if you want to attend a program. And we hope that all monthly meetings will support members and attenders, young and old, partnering with Quaker Center in our efforts to nurture the spiritual lives of all regardless of their financial means.
We’re hoping to see lots of Friends at these at these enriching workshops. To that end, we are offering a $100 bring a Friend discount if you bring a newcomer to a Quaker Center program. See you soon!
