Boulder Meeting’s Blog page highlights the projects, activities, and interests of individual members and attenders. The Blog page is intended to encourage sharing of ideas and to help us get to know each other. Do you have something to share with the rest of us? Perhaps a trip where you provided outreach work, an article you wrote that concerns Friends, or something similar? If so, this may be the place to post it!
How to Post a Blog Entry
Send your article or story to the web committee, and we will post it for you.
