Quaker Open House

Cannon Valley Friends Meeting(Quaker) is holding an open house for the entire Northfield area community to celebrate our new building.  Please join us Sunday, September 20th, 1:00-5:00 pm, at 512 Washington Street.  There will be music, refreshments, activities, and tours of the building. 

After 50 years of meeting in homes and rental spaces, we broke ground for a Meetinghouse in the fall of 2013.  For a year we have been settling into the space, gradually making it a place of our own.  We would like to welcome the community into our Meetinghouse to celebrate with us.

Sunday, September 20th, is also the annual celebration of the United Nations’ International Day of Peace, held on Bridge Square, 2:00-3:30 pm.  Cannon Valley Friends invite people to participate in both events on that day and to honor the importance of peace and working toward that goal through partnerships.  The Society of Friends (Quakers) is an historic peace church and supports the work of the United Nations.  Everyone is welcome at the open house, at the Day of Peace activities, and to join us for Meetings for Worship on Sundays.
