The State College Friends Meeting continues to be very active, but the attendance at Meeting for Worship has been down a little. Attendance will improve when the local schools and the Penn State University resume classes.
We have held Meeting for Worship on the lawn twice this summer. Both days the sun was shining, but on the third Sunday it rained.
Members of the Meeting attended both the Baltimore Yearly Meeting and the Philadelphia Yearling Meeting, and reported to the Monthly Meeting.
The meeting did have a farewell potluck dinner for Lauri Perman and Tom Ryan in the Meeting House before they moved from State College to Pendle Hill where Lauri is now Director. As the move was made, Laurie resigned as Clerk of BYM. They will be missed here, but we hope they have a successful life in their new mission. Tom had been editing and producing the First Day bulletin. We thank him for his years of service. The weekly bulletin is done now by Betsy Gamble.
New members of committees started their three year terms the first of July. There were many new people appointed along with others that have served before.
The anti-war vigil continues every Saturday morning at the entrance to the Penn State campus, with many non-Quakers taking part.
