April 12 – April 14 – Men’s Retreat
Catoctin Quaker Camp (Thurmont, MD)
Since 2002, men from Stony Run Meeting in Baltimore have gathered early in the spring to build connections among Friends at one of BYM’s magnificent camps. In recent years, men Friends from other meetings have participated in the weekend. This year, all men Friends in BYM are invited to register and gather at Catoctin for dinner sixth day through lunch first day-or any portion thereof. The retreat is very loosely programmed and includes time to relax, work cooperatively, hike (or nap), talk, tell stories, play, and have fun. The registration form and additional information are available from Chris Giannella (firstname.lastname@example.org or 443-853-0440)
