CYM and NeeKauNis

OMM Friends were out doing many things this summer.  Some were in WInnipeg in early August, attending the annual Canadian Yearly Meeting gathering.  This is always a lovely time of reconnecting with F/friends, doing business and participating in a wide range of activities.  The CYM webpage has details and pictures of the weeks' activities.  Caroline contributed this poem, written with another CYM attender:

When Quakers are sitting in meeting,
Their benches too hard for their sleeping,
Their thoughts turn to God
Or something less odd:
Their hearts quake instead of just beating.

From Refugees to Newcomers

We are very happy that the Syrian family of 6 we are sponsoring arrived safely in late May and that the settling in is going well.  They have moved into a row house that is now fully furnished.  The many forms and applications that are required for municipal, provincial and federal programs and services are either completed or well underway.  The children are registered for school in September and the parents have begun English classes.  A delicious welcome lunch was enjoyed on Saturday July 13th.  We are all relieved and happy that they are here and we are getting to know each other.
