True godliness doesn’t turn men out of the world, but enables them to live better in it, and excites their endeavours to mend it; not hide their candle under a bushel, but set it upon a table in a candlestick. - William Penn, 1682

New Mexico Regional Meeting Gathers in Durango April 21 - April 23
Our NMRM planning committee has been hard at work to put together a great program for April! As you know, Durango Friends are hosting the gathering, and we expect as many as 60 participants. We will meet on Friday evening and Sunday morning at the meeting house, and spend Saturday at the Durango Community Rec Center. As we get closer to April, we will be looking for volunteers to help in a number of ways. We hope you will seriously consider providing overnight housing to some of our out-of-town guests on Friday and Saturday nights, if you have space.
We would also like to talk to any of you who might be inclined to help with young friends, ages 7 and older. First, we would simply welcome your ideas for putting together a fun and engaging program for them. In the past, the number of young friends has been small, but whatever the number, we think it's important to encourage them to come to Durango and participate in the regional meeting. April 22 is Earth Day; the Rec Center is available for our use on Saturday; the Wildlife Museum and Fish Hatchery are just a hop and a skip down the bike path; the Animas Chocolate Company is next door; the trail head to Animas Mountain is just a few blocks away. We're open to ideas. Please let us hear from you.
The registration deadline is March 15th.
