Takoma Park Friends Meeting-Preparative gathered on 2/18/2024 in the library of the Takoma Park Presbyterian Church, following meeting for worship.

We heard and discussed queries from Baltimore Yearly Meeting Faith and Practice on Meetings for Business.                

Tricia Crocker, treasurer, presented the treasurer’s report for the period 12/1/2023 to 2/18/2024 (attached).  We accepted the report.

We heard that the Presbyterian Church’s gleaning project takes place on the second Sunday of the month, are in communication with them about possible participation, and will make this opportunity available to meeting members.

We plan to have a first reading of gifts to Quaker groups next month. Meeting members are encouraged to submit suggestions to the clerk.

We heard and approved these minutes.  We adjourned, to gather next on March 17, 2024, or at the call of the presiding clerk.
