For February there will be a change in the schedule for Power Quakers. We will meet on February 7th and February 28th. We will NOT meet on February 21st.
We hope to take some field trips this year. We were all especially interested in a visit to the Cayuga Share Farm, the only piece of land in New York State restored to the Cayuga people. I will be contacting the Farm to see when a visit might be possible. We also discussed a visit to Poplar Ridge to experience a programmed Meeting. We will reconsider this at a future date. We would need one or two people to help us carpool to any trip destination.

Last time we met, we began considering the question: “What do you want to welcome into your life in 2010?” This is not a new year’s resolution, but rather a way to consider being open to positive directions, leadings, and other positive things that may manifest in the coming year. We will put our hopes in writing, seal them away, and open them a year from now.
In future meetings we will begin to consider what skills and strengths we bring to the peacemaking/peacebuilding process. We hope to plan a trip to visit Poplar Ridge [a programmed Meeting] and also a visit to the Share Farm, a Cayuga Nation endeavor under the wing of the Akwesasne Task Force on the Environment.
