Antiracism Book Group

Antiracism Book Group
Sunday September 19, 7pm

The summer book is How the Word is Passed: A Reckoning With the History of Slavery Across America by Clint Smith. A deeply researched and transporting exploration of the legacy of slavery and its imprint on centuries of American history, How the Word Is Passed illustrates how some of our country’s most essential stories are hidden in plain view—whether in places we drive by on our way to work, holidays such as Juneteenth, or entire neighborhoods like downtown Manhattan, where the brutal history of the trade in enslaved men, women, and children has been deeply imprinted.


East Village Fair

Get Excited! The East Village Fair is coming!
Save the Date for October 2, 10am-3pm!

Summer days are long but the season is short – Follen will be hosting the 183rd East Village Fair this October 2! This year’s EVF committee members, Megan Lancaster, Leslie Coney and Chris Farnham (along with the stalwart support crew) have been meeting regularly. If current public health trends continue the fair will be very much like our pre-COVID format.

Mark October 2 on your calendar; gather your fleas for the market and pick out your best Fall flannel. The fair, as you know, runs on volunteers.  We look forward to working with many of you to have a wonderful return to a full fair.  Keep your eyes open for further information to come.


Metta: Mid-Week Meditation

Pause. Breathe. Rest.

Wednesdays Mid-Day

Every Wednesday from 11:30am-12:00pm a Zoom room will be open for you to sit quietly with other Follenites. Then, at 12.00, there will be a guided loving-kindness meditation (Metta) for about 15 minutes. If you think you might like to do this, regardless of how often or how seldom, you must register so that, when you do come, your email address will be recognized and you can be let in. Pause. Breathe. Rest. (Reply to metta@follen.org)

 

Note: We are on a break until July 7.


Follen Stitches

Blue knitted socks

The Follen Stitches, Follen’s knitting group, meets every Wednesday morning from 10am til noon. The first Wednesday of the month is via Zoom, and the remaining weeks are in person in the Anne Smith Room. Many knit, some do other needlework, but no handiwork is required to join and chat.  We have a stash of yarn and some needles and can teach beginners.

Contact Laura Dickerson for details and link to join at knitters@follen.org.


Adult Choir Rehearsal

Adult Choir rehearsal/gatherings are Tuesdays from 7:30 – 8:30 on Zoom. Choir is done for the summer and will return in the fall!

We’ll have fun learning how to sing better, exploring the secrets of expressive performance, sharing our love of music and our friendship.

Contact Shaylor Lindsay at musiccoordinator@follen.org with questions.
