Chestnut Hill Friends Meeting
The photo on this page shows Irene McHenry, executive director of Friends Council on Education, giving a tour of the new Chestnut Hill meetinghouse to a 10th grade class from the William Penn Charter School. As a member of Chestnut Hill Monthly Meeting, Irene is available to give tours of the meetinghouse to school groups. Penn Charter regularly sends their upper school Quakerism classes to visit this meetinghouse, learn about the skyspace, and learn about Quaker worship.

From the very earliest days of the project to build our new meetinghouse, Phil Jones took at least two photos almost every time he was at the old meetinghouse working as meeting secretary. The series taken from the top of the stairs from the UCPA parking lot down to the building site weren't very interesting once the building was closed in, but Terry Foss turned those taken from the woods, behind the chain-link fence, into a video to show how the building grew over the course of a year.
This event has been canceled because of Deborah Fisch's illness. Stay tuned for a rescheduled event.
