triune? Our nominating committee recommended to November meeting for worship with attention to business that, with the departure of co-clerk David Schoen, clerking of our meeting be shared between Elizabeth Bullock-Rest, Mary Elsie Marchant, and Richard Tiffany. This proposal will be brought again to December meeting for final approval. If approved, they will serve for the remainder of David Schoen’s term – i.e. until January 2012.
committees With the change of venue for our meeting, please check with your committee clerks for the location of committee meetings. They may now be at Bennett House or some other location.
