From Susan Carlyle: Piedmont Friends Fellowship Yearly Meeting will meet from 9 AM to 3 PM on June 2nd at New Garden Friends Meeting. Bring your own lunch – coffee will be provided

Upcoming Events: Because of the iftar meal on Saturday June 2ndWorship and Ministry Committee will NOT be hosting a Quaker Tea on that date. We will announce the new date in next week’s newsletter.

From Raleigh Bailey and Lisa Ross: Iftar is the name of the meal eaten by Muslims at sunset during the month of Ramadan to break the day of fasting. Friendship is invited to join in two different Iftar events in the next few days.

Saturday, June 2nd, Iftar event at Islamic Center of the Triad, 1203 Frances Daily Court, Colfax, 8:30 PM.

(Note: Frances Daily Court goes right off West Market Street after crossing Pleasant Ridge Road after the airport.)    This community has a noticeable Palestinian population. Friendship has contributed funds for this night’s meal.

Tuesday, June 5th, Iftar event with Divan Center at New Garden Friends Meeting, 8 PM. The Divan Center is the Turkish Muslim community who has had programs in conjunction with Friends in the past. We are encouraged to invite refugees to this event. They will provide food, but if anyone wants to bring supplementary food, it can be fruits, vegetables, a vegetarian dish, or otherwise a 'halal' dish since Muslim people have dietary restrictions. Below is the tentative agenda for the event:

8:00pm - Welcome
8:05pm - A short video about Ramadan and fasting

8:15pm - Addressing questions from the audience

8:30pm - Dinner starts
10:00pm End of the event

From Gwen Gosney Erickson: North Carolina Yearly Meeting (Conservative) has a new website at www.ncymc.org. It includes current featured links to 2018 YM program information and registration. All are welcome. Folks are encouraged to register before June 10th to receive a discount and to help us with planning.

From Lloyd Lee Wilson: Friends may wish to participate in a survey that Friends General Conference is conducting as part of its institutional assessment. The survey is online and easy to complete. FGC is also glad to provide a printed copy and mail it to any Friend who may not be online or does not wish to complete the survey online. The link to the survey is: https://www.surveymonkey.c om/r/FGC_IA

Additional information about FGC's institutional assessment process is at https://www.fgcquaker.org/ deepen/help-your-meeting- challenge-racism/fgcs- institutional-assessment-2017- 2018

From Phayth Myer: Elizabeth Judson-Rea and Daniel Amstutz have had their baby boy, Ryder Elliot

I am coordinating a meal train for them for anyone who is interested in cooking for them.  Just use this link   https://www.mealtrain.com/trains/5y89mk or see me for more information.

Query 6: Do we endeavor by example and precept to cultivate in our children a sense of openness and expectancy about life, and to aid them in their growth in spiritual understanding and moral discernment? Do we share with them the faith that guides the practice of Friends, while encouraging them to develop their religious insights as the Spirit of God may lead them?

*************************************************************************************

Don’t forget donations for First Friends Food Bank (please no boxed items such as pasta, because they attract bugs and other nasties). FEMAP would greatly appreciate donations of baby washcloths and adult toothpaste and toothbrushes, adult and baby shampoo, and hand towels.
