Monthly Meeting Minutes

Below are links to the minutes of our Monthly Meeting for Worship with attention to Business; the most recent years are at the top.  In Minutes 2017.1.3 and 2017.3.6, Friends approved the publishing of the minutes on this website.  Our hope is to make them available not only as webpages, but as downloadable .doc and .pdf files as well.  To print any webpage, click on the “Printer-friendly version” link at the bottom of a page, which will reformat the page for printing.

The full text of printed minutes will be archived on behalf of New England Yearly Meeting in the Special Collections and University Archives (SCUA) at the W.E.B. Du Bois Library of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

Below the calendars of links to minutes are downloadable documents describing the Quaker business process.
