#3  Reminder - 2019 State of the Meeting Reports
Do now, Due May 31st at PYM. 
is the month for Monthly Meetings to conduct their annual spiritual assessment, aka State of the Meeting (SoM) reports. 

PQM encourages our meetings to share
 their SoM reports with the Philadelphia Quarter before May 25th. Sharing will help PQM to write an informed spiritual State of the Quarterly Meeting report that reflects our diverse Quarter. Thank thee Friends!

Email or use the handy-dandy PQM online Google form (it conforms to the PYM format). PQM will forward all reports to PYM Quaker Life Council by their May 31st deadline.
