SPRING FAIR SUCCESS!

Thanks to everyone who cooked, helped, entertained, purchased raffle tickets, plants, or otherwise attended and had fun at Spring Fair 2018! Special thanks to chefs Chet and Jennifer Thompson for organizing the incredible Hawaiian food spread, and to Skip Coon and Kim Rasnov Coon who organized many things and many of you!

Thanks as well to Sabrina Faith, our raffle chair, to Lizzy Holm who organized the plant sale, and to all of the music performers — especially the Mohr family band!

Plant Sale Continues

Speaking of plants…the plant sale continues this week! Look for Charlotte in the driveway at drop-off or pickup or email her your order. We have beautiful annuals, tomatoes and peppers, herbs, cacti, hanging baskets and more for sale. All proceeds go to the Annual Giving Campaign, which supports everything we do at Miquon, from art supplies to keeping our campus beautiful.

Missing a Dish?

Claim your dishes and pans! If you’re missing a crockpot or a dish, please stop by the office kitchen this week to claim it.

 

FROM SCIENCE KATE

Kate is looking for plastic gardening pots/containers to start more seedlings.  Please bring in any small containers that you may have purchased recently at a plant sale.  Thanks!

COMMUNITY BULLETIN BOARD

Community Conversation on Race
Weds, June 13, 6:30 pm | Abington Free Library Community Rm, 1030 Old York Rd

Peggy Macintosh’s “Knapsack of White Privilege” will help inform our conversation about the need for ongoing anti-racist work, perhaps using the recent Starbucks incident as a jumping off point. We hope you can join us for this important community conversation. We have to keep working together to understand one another’s points of view and to help keep one another safe and thriving in our community.

No need to have attended any of the other conversations to join us for this one. Everyone is welcome! Bring a friend!

Knapsack of White Privilege

If you have questions about the event, get in touch with Jeri Bond Whatley.

Note the correction: This event is not presented by the Greater Philadelphia Diversity Collaborative as previously published; it is presented by Abington Friends School.
