Radnor Meeting celebrated our 300th birthday September 22-23 in grand style! On Saturday, we delighted in Quaker-themed Storytelling with Puppets, marveled at the creations of Radnor’s artists, appreciated tours of Radnor’s buildings and history, made peace-themed crafts, drew inspiration from presentations on Better Angels and Quaker Beliefs and Action, centered in through Tai Chi, and enjoyed delicious sandwiches, home-baked cookies, popcorn, and birthday cake. We thoroughly enjoyed the time to welcome friends from near and far, families, neighbors, contractors, and one another! On First Day, we settled into deep worship and were moved by inspiring messages. Afterwards, we had a celebration luncheon with food from Radnor’s many fine chefs. We were also able to donate unused food from Saturday to My Brother’s Place, affiliated with Bethesda House, a local charity providing care to homeless people. The planning group wishes to thank ALL those who helped to make our 300th celebration a time of peace, civility, hope and love!
