Once again the McPhee and Weaver families and their crew put on a fabulous fish fry for the October dinner. They always do a fantastic job and we are very grateful to all of them.

We will be very busy for the next couple of months at the church in preparation for the upcoming holidays.

Our 3rd Saturday dinner will be on November 17th from 5:00-6:30 p.m.. This will be a turkey dinner with all the fixings, including various homemade pies for dessert. The dinner is $10.00 for adults and $4.00 for kids and can be eaten in or packaged so you can enjoy it at home.

We have once again been asked to join in the Thanksgiving Eve service at the Danville Union Church. Our bell choir will be part of the service. It is at 7:00 pm on Wednesday November 21st. This is a beautiful historical church and all are invited.

West Epping Quaker Meeting House

The West Epping Meeting grew out of the Seabrook Quarterly Meeting in the middle of the 18th century. Records show that Joshua Folsom was a recorded minister among Friends in the community in 1772 – though he may have commenced his activities even earlier. The present Meeting House was built in 1851. The surrounding tall pines, dating from this period, have been a distinguishing feature of West Epping Village.

West Epping Friends meet for silent worship at 10 am every first and third Sunday of the month. We welcome visitors to our meetings to join with us.
