Mark your calendars for Adult Forum, Sunday, November 1 (9:45-10:45 a.m.) when George Lakey will be joining us. Many Friends find themselves worried about the election and the possibility of a power grab should the vote be close and procedures challenged. Join us on November 1st and learn how “studying research that shows how other countries have handled coup attempts, we can better counter or even prevent one of our own”. In the meantime, you can find information, or even sign up for a training workshop at: www. choose democracy.us

Readers Wanted: This summer for Summer Program, several New Gardeners recorded themselves reading children’s stories aloud for our Facebook page. These videos were popular with New Gardeners of all ages, and continued to receive “traffic” well after the dates they were posted.

New Gardeners are missing one another! So why not continue connecting this way? Friends are invited to record themselves reading one of their favorite children’s books aloud, and send the recording to Karin Heller, who will post one story each week to the New Garden Friends Meeting Facebook page. Only first names will be used in an effort to protect privacy. Links may also be sent out via email for those who do not use Facebook. For more information, please email Karin Heller at (karin@ngfm.org).
