Quiet time to reflect

To the Editor:

On Christmas Day, Sunday, December 25, Swarthmore Friends Meeting will hold an extended Meeting for Worship in the traditional manner of Friends. The Meeting House is on the North end of the Swarthmore College campus, at 12 Whittier Place. The Meeting will began at 9 a.m. and end about 11a.m. A Christmas Tea will follow in Whittier Room of the Meeting House, hosted by Virginia Williams Joyce and Paul Joyce Collins Williams. Please, feel free to bring “sweet and tastes” to share.

Amid the busy Christmas activities many Friends value a Meeting for Worship as a time to quietly feel and hear the Divine Presence and reflect on the deeper meaning of this Holiday.

We welcome all to join us, at either 9 a.m. or 10 a.m. and for the Christmas Tea.

Paul Joyce Collins Williams

Thank you!

To the Editor:

Thank you for the mittens, gloves, scarves, boots and other winter clothing which you so generously donated to the Mitten Tree at the Swarthmore Public Library.

Thanks also go to those of you who so kindly contributed money which was used to buy more cold weather items. All donations were brought to Cityteam Ministries in Chester.

Special gratitude goes to librarian Carol Mackin for her help and support. Sincerely,

Jane C. Sottile

‘Out of proportion’

To the Editor:

“Out-of-towners parking on our streets all day!” Tiny Swarthmore (and it is tiny) is a small part of Delaware County, which is a small part of Pennsylvania, which is a small part of the United States, which is a small part of the Earth.

Human beings are the same whether they live in Swarthmore or not. People move freely around this area no matter where their actual home is. Cancer is such a horrible disease, and the reaction to the Council’s decision is out of proportion to the use of the house.
