What Do You Get When You Give Quakers WiFi?

Cable Installation at the Junction Box
At least here at Midcoast Friends Meeting, you get an amazing number of people pulling out a handheld device and checking it out!  There were Friends taking snaps of each other and sharing them, talking about fair access in the digital age, and walking out into the parking lot to map the signal strength.

We installed cable internet and a wireless modem earlier this month, so we can now stream video and Skype presentations, too. I hope you'll stop by and check it out!  The Wifi is free and available 24/7 from the porch, the play yard, and the parking lot, as well as in the building.

Midcoast Outreach and Peace Center Hires Coordinator

A recent meeting of the Oversight Committee.
Members of the Midcoast Meeting of Friends' Oversight Committee on Outreach hire an Outreach Coordinator: ME!

I'll be setting up some space at Midcoast Meetinghouse (77 Belvedere Road, Damariscotta) and getting ready to help their vision of a vibrant, supportive Outreach and Peace Center expand.  I know the meeting has already been very active presenting programming in area venues and expect there will be lots of help as we bring home some of our expertise. I start April 1st.  More details (like office hours) to come as we work them out!
