We have resumed cooking meals at the church again, for the women and children who are staying at the Prudence Crandall shelter or safehouse.  To accommodate all who would like to participate, we meet from 10 to noon for meal preparations and then again at 5 pm to finish cooking the meal. Once the dinner is completed, we gather for a meal and fellowship; which anyone can come for (around 6 pm).  Future dates for the 2022 program are as follows . . . October 20th, November 17th and December 15th.  For 2023 they will be January 19th, February 16th, March 16th, April 20th and May 18th.



We will be reading The Midnight Library, by Matt Haig.  In this enchanting novel, Nora Seed finds herself faced with this decision. Faced with the possibility of changing her life for a new one, following a different career, undoing old breakups, realizing her dreams of becoming a glaciologist; she must search within herself as she travels through the Midnight Library to decide what is truly fulfilling in life, and what makes it worth living in the first place.  Our next meeting will be on Thursday, October 13th, in the parlor, from 5:30-6:30 pm.  Upcoming dates and books are:  November 10th, Wish You Were Here, by Jodi Picoult and December 8th, The Giver of Stars, by Jojo Moyes.
