Highlights from October 23 Meeting for Worship with Attention to Business
• Recital Results: Oct. 23 was a wonderful day, enjoyed by 134 attendees. We expressed deep appreciation of Layla Claire’s singing and Michael Shannon’s accompaniment, plus the work of so many people who made the day a great success.
• Accessibility Project:
The lift is operational, and was well-used on the day of the Recital. Fundraising has almost covered the costs of the project, but donations toward the Meeting’s regular operating budget are always needed.
• YSMM Retreat: Moving Forward: postponed to the new year, due to the many activities this fall.
• Corporate Discernment: we re-affirmed our commitment to Quaker processes for discernment and corporate decision-making. Ministry and Counsel is asked to continue to share resources for building our spiritual community.
• YSMM Signage: The Pride symbol has been removed, but no further consideration of a permanent sign will be done until the construction on Yonge Street is completed.
• PESAC: reported on Helping hands, action to respond to the TRC report, and a future presentation by CFSC on Synthetic Biology
• Nominations: several new appointments were approved. Please note: Robin Matheson has been named as the new Newssheet editor, after this issue. Please send Robin future announcements for the newssheet.
