Twenty Friends and friends attended our Quaker memorial meeting for Betty Peterson today. Donna Smyth read a letter from Betty's daughter Ilse, about her mother. Many F/friends spoke of their experiences with Betty in Peace and Justice work and in friendly contacts. Visitors from Voice of Women for Peace had joined us. At the end of the meeting we all joined in a toast to Betty, drinking from the maple sweet sap that Donna Smyth and Gillian Thomas brought us from their farm.
