Friends were honored to welcome Peter Murchison to Poughkeepsie Friends Meeting at Oakwood Friends School for the Nine Partners Quarterly Meeting (which includes New Paltz, Oswego-Bulls Head Meetings) on Sunday, February 4th. Peter gave a heartfelt and impactful presentation on Preventing Gun Violence.
