Reading and Approval of September’s Minutes:

Deb Wood’s Travel Letter for informational purposes only. The letter was sent to her - clerk

Reading and Approval of Joys and Challenges Letter for Quarterly Meeting -  Clerk

Need for a new nominating committee - Clerk

  • Discussion: should we form a nominating committee to check in on committee membership lists, help fill empty positions including a representative to religious council and a replacement for longstanding members on the FDS planning committee, not a committee that needs to meet monthly, at the moment PC&C is carrying this work along with its many other responsibilities. Should we Invite attenders to join in this work?
  • Hoped for Outcome: Sense of the Meeting for a nominating committee and volunteers to serve on it.

Ordering Faith and Practice - Clerk

  • Discussion: Should we order for the library and members? There is a discount for orders over $100 (that would be 11 copies) QuakerBooks now has the new Faith and Practice in stock with a 10% discount for orders over $100.  The book is $12 otherwise. Here is the link
