Vigil For Love This Saturday
From Brad Archer: The members of the Woodstock Social Justice Initiative invite you to join us for a Vigil for Love this Saturday, the 19th. Our plan is to join peacefully together at noon on The Green in Woodstock to counter the hate groups that are meeting nationwide this weekend. Please encourage members of your organizations to join us as we stand together for peace and justice. 
In solidarity, 
Brad Archer,  WSJI

Community Conversations!
The board invites you to join a Community Conversation either:
Sunday 27th of August from 11:30 - 1pm, or

It's on again! The North Chapel's much-anticipated annual fundraise for our five kids at LHA's Children's Development Village. It's normally a sold-out event, so put a big circle around  September 16 , an evening of wonderful entertainment, great food, and warm fellowship.
