The 2016 sessions of South Central Yearly Meeting will be held at:
Thursday, March 24, through Sunday, March 27, 2016
The theme this yearly meeting is "Living Water from the Well: Renewal in Quaker Community; Indwelling and Outpouring, Sustainability and Sustenance".
What to Bring? Yearly Meeting provides a comfortable cabin, bed and mattress. So, remember to bring your own bedding, pillow and towels. Many folks also like to bring sunscreen, insect repellent, watter bottle/coffee mug, umbrella. Worship in Song or Rise up Singing song books, musical instruments, and old sheets for privacy curtains if staying in dorms.
Mobility Challenges? Don't let them keep you at home. If a little motorized assistance enables you to attend - plan on doing so. Friends have volunteered to drive friends from one location to another - or at least as close to those locations as a car can get. Just let the registrar know what your needs are and we will work on plans to assist.
First TIme Attenders? Greeters will be on hand to answer "first" questions, show you around the camp, help you find your lodging space, introduce you to others, etc. Later Friends wearing Ask Me badges will be available to answer questions or help you overcome challenges and clear up confusion. And we will have short meetings on Thursday after dinner and Friday after lunch and dinner, where first timers can get information, meet other first timers, and get directions, And if you are a shy first time and don't want all this attention, that's all right too.
