Pacific Northwest Quarterly Meeting (PNQM)

PNQM meets in the Fall and Spring of each year at the Lazy F Camp near Ellensburg
in Central Washington. The program begins on Friday evening and ends with lunch on Sunday.

Dear Registrants,

Friends have been concerned about the air quality at Lazy F Ranch this year, and how it would affect the 2017 Fall Quarterly Meeting.

The weather has changed, the current air quality is good, and with the current forecast, we expect it to remain good.

The Emergency Decisions committee of PNQM met September 18, 2017 and agreed that Fall Quarterly Meeting will take place as planned September 22-24, 2017.

We look forward to seeing all of you there!

Jana Ostrom, Clerk
John Gotts, Co-Registrar
Anne Laird, Co-Registrar

Fall Quarterly Meeting, September 22-24, 2017

Friday Evening Meal

September 22, 2017

Dear Friends,

Our Friday evening meal will again be a potluck, with Friends contributing as they wish to our community gathering.

Whidbey and Port Townsend Meetings will provide soup, vegetarian and non-vegetarian, breads, and a bit of cheese.

We ask Friends to bring their contributions with labels of ingredients, especially those that contain common allergens such as wheat and dairy. We encourage Friends to bring gluten-free dishes as they are able. Simple sticky notes are fine for those labels.

Please address any questions about the Friday evening meal to Hazel Johnson at or her home phone 360-385-6000.

Dear Friends,

Here in Western Washington we experienced some very difficult atmospheric conditions (forest fire smoke) over the last week, as did many in our region.

As we approach 2017 Fall Quarterly Meeting, some Friends are concerned that travel conditions, and at Lazy F, will be uncomfortable, unhealthy, and even unsafe. Those of us involved in planning our gathering share these concerns, and are discussing how to proceed.

The Emergency Decisions Committee of PNQM will hold a meeting early next week to decide whether or not 2017 Fall Quarterly Meeting should proceed. Registrants will be notified of the outcome as soon as possible.

In the meantime, please consider your needs and the needs of your family. There are possible smoky conditions on the way to the Ellensburg area, and during our stay at Lazy F. It is up to each family to decide whether or not to attend, provided the meeting is held. At the end of this notice, there are some websites that may be helpful in assessing conditions of concern.

if you are registered, and decide not to attend, please notify the Registrar as soon as possible,

by cancelling in the registration system, or

by emailing .

May we all travel in the light!

Anne Laird
