Ten Friends met on Wednesday, Jan.25 to consider how or if to proceed with “adopting” a refugee family. The CHFM Peace and Social Concerns committee suggested to the January Meeting for Business that the amount of work and commitment involved was best undertaken by a separate committee, dedicated to this work, hence the formation of this investigative group.
