Using a forge and anvils, the same team that held the gun buyback in Norwalk in November met to transform parts of guns into gardening tools. The team included members of the Wilton Quaker Meeting celebrating Sunday's World Quaker Day and members of Swords Into Plowshares Northeast.  The tools will be distributed to community gardening programs including at Norwalk's Fodor Farm.

We are completing our renovation of Helen Gander Hall (HGH formerly the Annex). 

Our objective was to renovate HGH to meet the standards required by Connecticut Friends School, the state of CT for preschools, fix any current issues with HGH, and extend the useful life of the building.

We have made the building more environment friendly by replacing the roof, increasing insulation, converting to a more efficient HVAC system, and made other modifications to be more friendly to the CFS pre-school, as well as other prospective tenants.

Wilton Quaker Meeting is holding Meeting For Worship using Zoom during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Dear Friends,

      Given the escalating COVID-19 virus situation, we have made some difficult decisions to balance our ability to worship as a community with the danger represented by even a few of us gathering to worship in person.  There is no guarantee that a person without symptoms is actually free of the virus, so we have chosen to err on the side of caution, especially given that many members of our Meeting are in age and health groups that pose extra risk.

Peter is a member of Wilton Quaker Meeting, co-clerk of Ministry and Oversite and an outspoken advocate for gun violence prevention. He engages in this important work in honor of his nephew, Daniel Barden - one of the children who lost their lives in the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting.
