Hospitality Committee

The Hospitality Committee functions mainly to provide refreshments following our weekly meeting for worship. It is comprised of Friends who usually take turns on a rotating bases as individuals, rather than function as a whole committee the way other Meeting committees typically do.

Key Requirements of the person providing refreshments following worship include:

  • Setting up for hospitality before worship on Sunday mornings that includes making sure that cream/creamer is on hand, and setting up a few chairs and small table in the Community House hall.
  • Making coffee and heating water for tea so that it is ready following worship.
  • Providing for typical sweets, or fruits and beverages suitable for adults and children of the Meeting.
  • Cleanup following hospitality, but other Friends are encouraged to help with this also.

Though some Friends bake or buy goodies for hospitality and absorb these expenses as a gift to the Meeting, Friends should also feel encouraged submit slips for reimbursement.

Occasionally, the Hospitality Committee may be called upon to coordinate refreshments and pot-luck meals as requested by Monthly Meeting. In such cases others from within the Meeting community are also expected to help with providing foods, setup, serving and cleanup.
