I am an active member of St. Louis Monthly Meeting, Blue River Quarterly and Illinois Yearly Meeting.
A retired public social worker, I have a "good" Quaker part-time job as Program Manager of AGLI - The African Great Lakes Initiative of the Friends Peace Teams. One of my tasks is to recruit folks for our summer workcamps in Africa which are open to all ages and require no specific skills.
Hullo Dawn! Thank you for carrying me in your heart! I haven't logged into QQ in a very long time. What a lovely reminder that 1) I can meet you here; and 2) I can meet new Friends here... s0mething that is important to someone like me who is terribly shy and has a hard time finding my place in new communities. Blessings!
