On Your Way to Silver Bay

Adirondack Friends Meeting invites Friends to visit meeting for worship on Sunday, July 24—a wonderful way to extend your knowledge of NYYM Friends and add a worshipful break to your journey. Adirondack Meeting is about one hour south of Silver Bay in South Glens Falls.

    Time: Worship is programmed and begins at 10:30 a.m.; refreshments and sharing follow.

     Address: 27 Saratoga Ave., South Glens Falls NY 12803.

    For more info, contact Jodi Distefano, jmdlmt@yahoo.com or 518-232-6329.

Bulls Head-Oswego Meeting also invites you to join them for the last of their regular meetings for worship in their old historic 1790s meetinghouse in Oswego village in Dutchess County. They are in the process of ending their ownership of this building.

    Time is 10:30 am on Sunday, on your way to Silver Bay.

    Address: 12 N. Smith Rd., Lagrangeville, NY 12540.

    Note: This is their "old" meetinghouse, not the one they use every week on Bulls Head Road. This Oswego is in Dutchess County and is NOT related to the Oswego worship group under the care of Syracuse Meeting.
