6:30pm -- Dinner
All Friday Fellowship community members and family are welcome at this informal dinner at the Friday Conference Center.
While there will be a very brief program this evening, more time and space is provided here for Fellows to gather, move about the room, visit in a relaxed setting, and enjoy a meal together in the style of a homecoming or family reunion.
Post a notice, make an plan before the weekend, or encourage folks to join group gatherings tomorrow in one of the open meeting rooms (see below).
