Come show solidarity with Patuxent Meeting, which is embattled as it faces a major environmental issue in its own back yard. Chesapeake and Patuxent Friends would love to have you join us for worship, fellowship, food, fun, and facts about some important concerns.

For information on the Cove Point Natural Gas concern, see our minute at http://chesapeake.bym-rsf.net/?p=469 . Also note these upcoming events related to that concern:

Children’s activities will be provided.
The famous GIANT slip and slide will be operating during the afternoon hours.

Since we are expecting a wonderful summer day, lunch is planned to be a summer picnic!

Please RSVP your dietary restrictions and numbers of children coming so we can be sure to provide appropriate food and childcare.
