BYM Mourns the Death of Friends
BYM is saddened to share news of the recent deaths of two Friends known throughout our Yearly Meeting - Margaret Stambaugh (Gettysburg Meeting) and Jules Arginteanu (Richmond Meeting). Margaret, who previously held membership at Pipe Creek Friends Meeting, was active though out BYM, with a special ministry for the Yearly Meeting staff. A Memorial Meeting is scheduled for Margaret on September 17th at 2:00pm at Pipe Creek Meeting. Jules was a cherished part of both the Richmond and State College Meetings and a vital part of BYM through his work on the Religious Education Committee. Details of Jules memorial meeting will be provided later. Please hold the families of Margaret and Jules - and all the Friends we remembered at the Annual Session Memorial Meeting - in the Light.
