Newsletter Occasional site and general Quaker news Edited by Bill Samuel, Webservant, QuakerInfo.com
Welcome to our many new subscribers. Please note that this newsletter is published on an occasional basis rather than a regular schedule. Your Webservant has a full-time job in addition to other interests, and is limited in the amount of time he can devote to the site. Minor updates and adding of news headlines usually occur several times a week, but new articles and major updates are much less frequent. But there is one major development at the site to report this time:
Calendar of Yearly Meetings Chronological Listing - The Chronological Listing is a new feature of the Calendar of Yearly Meetings mini-site within QuakerInfo.com. Throughout the Calendar, information has been updated based on a preliminary copy of the printed Calendar from the Friends World Committee for Consultation (FWCC), and other sources. FWCC is still trying to fill a few gaps in information before issuing the 2004 printed Calendar, and when they do I will further update the on-line information.
