The proposal to change the starting time of Meeting for Worship from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. will be brought forward again at our Meeting for Worship with a Concern for Business at our April meeting for final approval. The proposal is for this change to take effect beginning in July, 2009. There is wide-spread support for this proposed change.
