Quakers welcome young families to Open House Sept. 20

Third Haven Friends Meeting in Easton will host an open house for young families on Sept. 20.

EASTON — The children’s education program of Third Haven Friends Meeting invites the community to an Open House to learn more about what Quakerism has to offer young families.

The Open House is scheduled from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 20, on Third Haven’s campus at 405 S. Washington St., Easton. Third Haven is about a block and a half south of Shore Regional Medical Center.

The Open House will feature a presentation by Melinda Wenner Bradley, a Quaker youth engagement expert with extensive experience in children’s spiritual development.

Activities will include a complimentary supper, games for the whole family, a tour of Third Haven and ample opportunity to ask questions and share experiences about raising peaceful kids in a busy, hectic world.

Learn about Faith and Play, beautiful stories about Quakerism and Quaker values told by teachers trained in a Montessori-inspired manner. Meet Cherie Baron and Kristen Hanlon, who led this year’s summer camps at Third Haven and who will teach Quakers in Nature, which helps kids build their toolbox of mindfulness techniques by immersing them in nature.

Childcare and abundant playtime for children will be available during the open house. Look for other Third Haven children’s events online at www.thirdhaven.org, including regular programs focused on mindfulness in nature, storytelling about Quakerism and social action.
