FRIENDS, LOVE & JOY:
It All Came Home to Hopewell This 275th Year
Hopewell Centre Meeting’s Homecoming, this year in conjunction with our 275th Anniversary, was a resounding success. Old friends arrived from as far away as California and Phoenix. Members of the BYM family came to visit, including Adelphi, Washington, DC, and Shepherdstown Meetings. And members of the Bahá’í community from Winchester and Woodstock joined us for the celebration.
HOPEWELL MEETING is 275 Years Old!
Join Us During Our Yearlong Celebration….
We invite everyone affiliated with BYM to join us as we mark this historic commemoration of 275 years of worship as Quakers in the Shenandoah Valley. Yearlong activities will include Open House days at our 250-year-old historic, landmark meeting house in Clearbrook, VA. Explore the 250-year-old building, graveyard and grounds; learn about our unique history as Quakers and the first settlers of Apple Pie Ridge and the Winchester area in 1734.
