We know there are some activities we can count on – including helping with the Mercer County annual homeless count, walking in the Institute Woods, our lovely Christmas Eve Family Meeting, and others. The Religious Education Committee has not yet established our regular meeting schedule for the 2009-10 year, but once we do, we'll be sure to let parents and Meeting members know of our plans. In the meantime, if you have suggestions or concerns you'd like to share with us, the members of the 2009-10 Religious Education committee are as follows:
The Meeting has also established a Ning group; if you'd like to join us there for online fellowship and sharing, you can find that site at http://princetonquakermeeting.ning.com. And of course general information about the Meeting continues to be available via the Princeton Monthly Meeting page on the Philadelphia Yearly Meeting site at http://www.pym.org/burlington-qm/princeton.htm.

This year Princeton Friends School and the First Day School classes of PMM will once again be partnering to support the Mercer County Homeless Count, a point-in-time count of the homeless people in Mercer County, including those living on the streets, in emergency shelters, and in transitional housing programs.
The purpose of the survey is to gather data that will be forwarded to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development in order to determine funding for federally supported services for the homeless. On the same day, the Mercer Alliance to End Homelessness will be sponsoring an event in Trenton called Project Homeless Connect, the purpose of which is to provide housing referrals, support services, and hospitality to the homeless in Mercer County.
Anyone who would like to help in this effort please contribute by donating small containers of applesauce and other fruits, pudding, raisins, packaged crackers, cookies, granola bars, and boxed juices. Contributions of this sort will be accepted throughout the weeks leading up to the event in the First Day School building.
Another way to contribute is to donate packages of men’s white tube socks. These will be handed out to the clients. Please bring them to the First Day School building.
During First Day School on January 25th, children will fill lunch bags with collected items in preparation for the sandwich-making event on January 27th.
On January 27th, we will hold our annual sandwich-making extravaganza and lead PMM and PFS adults and children in the making of brown bag meals to be distributed on January 28th. This is happening from 4:00 – 6:00 pm in the large room of the Meeting’s First Day School Building, just outside the door of the Beginning School room.
All are welcome to join this effort.
