300th Anniversary Celebration

300th Anniversary Celebration

Radnor Meeting celebrated our 300th birthday September 22-23 in grand style! On Saturday, we delighted in Quaker-themed Storytelling with Puppets, marveled at the creations of Radnor’s artists, appreciated tours of Radnor’s buildings and history, made peace-themed crafts, drew inspiration from presentations on Better Angels and Quaker Beliefs and Action, centered in through Tai Chi, and enjoyed delicious sandwiches, home-baked cookies, popcorn, and birthday cake. We thoroughly enjoyed the time to welcome friends from near and far, families, neighbors, contractors, and one another! On First Day, we settled into deep worship and were moved by inspiring messages. Afterwards, we had a celebration luncheon with food from Radnor’s many fine chefs. We were also able to donate unused food from Saturday to My Brother’s Place, affiliated with Bethesda House, a local charity providing care to homeless people. The planning group wishes to thank ALL those who helped to make our 300th celebration a time of peace, civility, hope and love!

Radnor Meeting Financial Contributions for a Better World

The Peace and Social Concerns committee announced contributions to the following organizations in June 2018:

  • The Broad Street Ministry for the care of Philadelphia’s homeless.
  • Tuition assistance for a SEGA School student in Tanzania Africa.
  • The First Place Transitional Home in Ardmore that provides a temporary home for refugees in this area and helps them find more permanent placement.
  • The Universal Hope Initiative is working to rebuild an apiary in western Puerto Rico that is an important source of livelihood for a community which was severely damaged by hurricane Maria.

In addition, there was a special collection in September 2017 to raise funds which we sent to Friends Live Oak Meeting to help Houston’s hurricane victims.
