Great Glebe Garage Sale

terrariumWe tried a new streamlined approach to the Great Glebe Garage Sale this year.  We recruited LOTS of volunteers and split our activities into two -- one group, at our Friend's driveway down the street, some sold a small collection of the usual "stuff" and collected a good bundle of cash for our charities. 

 At the Meetinghouse itself, another group focused on being more of a welcoming oasis, with live music on the front porch. We also had some organic seedlings, lovely terrariums, maple syrup, tiny delicious snacks for sale, & complimentary fruit water.  It was fun working together, plus we earned a good sum to split between the Centretown Emergency Food Bank and Baja Lempo child care centre.
 

Lots of folks enjoyed the shady forecourt or peaceful meeting room indoors (or just used our accessible bathroom) -- we hope some of our ~40 inquiring visitors will return to experience Meeting for Worship on a Sunday morning! We felt very happy to have had such varied activities (even dancing!) AND pleasure, while welcoming so many neighbours--and a lot less stress than in previous years!

April 2017 Refugee Committee Update: Application Accepted for Processing

The OMM Refugee Committee is delighted to announce that we have heard from Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada that our sponsorship application for the Syrian family has been accepted. We are also aware that it may take a year or more to completed. We very much hope that it will take less time but are greatly cheered to know that it is at least underway.

Young Adult Friend Gatherings

Ottawa Monthly Meeting is currently blessed with an abundance of Young Adult Friends.*  Many of the YAFs are now meeting for a potluck about once a month.  If you self-identify as a YAF and aren't yet connected to this group, ask around on a Sunday or send the webminder an e-mail and I'll put you in touch. 

*Quaker-speak for people roughly in their 20's and 30's who have a connection to Quakers.
