Letter of Introduction

Dear Tom

It is with pleasure that I commend Ashley W to the care of  Northwest  Yearly Meeting.  Ashley is attending your yearly meeting as the official representative from North Pacific YM.  She enjoyed her experience from last year so much that she reapplied and was once again accepted to represent us and bring our greetings to you. 

Many Friends in NWYM need no introduction to Ashley, but to those who do, she currently lives in Seattle Washington and is very active in University Friends Meeting and in the Seattle area Young Friends group.  Ashley is a bridge builder, working to connect Friends in the NW into one Quaker Family.  In addition to attending University Meeting she is a member of Freedom Friends Church in Salem, OR.  This past year she has been active on the planning committee for the NW Women’s Theological Conference which happened at the Seabeck Conference Center on Hood Canal a few short weeks ago.  This conference unites women of Freedom Friends Church, NPYM and NWYM through worship, play, and sharing of their spiritual journeys. She also helped plan the FWCC regional gathering that met at Canby Grove Conference Center in March 2009. 

Our annual session will precede yours by a few days this year so we will not get an immediate report back from Ashley.  We look forward to hearing from her about her time with you and hope that one or more Friends from NWYM will be moved to join us next year when we meet at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, Washington, July 13-17, 2011.  Information about our yearly meeting including annual session is available on our web site, NPYM.org. 

May the Spirit of Christ be with you for your annual session and throughout the year.

In Friendship

Janet J
Clerk, NPYM
