In Buckingham Township, Bucks County, at the fork in the road where Route 263 and Route 202 join, up on the hill is Buckingham Friends Meeting. Founded in 1720, the Meeting has been open for 300 years.
On June 25th, from 11:30am to 3:00pm, please join the Friends (aka Quakers) of Buckingham Meeting to celebrate the Meeting’s anniversary. Available will be guided and self-guided tours of the property and the Meeting House. The nine stops will take you from the school where there will be a wonderful display from the students, followed by details about Quaker faith and practice.
When you get to the Meeting House, stories about its architecture and the role it served in the Revolutionary War will be shared. Spoiler alert: the Revolutionary War era bullet hole in the wall is still there! The grounds will be open for picnicking. For convenience, picnic lunches with modern takes on century old recipes will be available.
The three sandwiches being offered are Turkey with Cranberry Pear Relish, Ely Pork with Solebury Orchard Apple Butter, and a Vegan option of Roasted Curried Vegetables. Each sandwich will be served with sides of Saratoga Style Chips, fresh strawberries, assorted cookies, and a bottle of water.
You can find out where these recipes were first published by visiting www.buckinghamfriendsmeeting.org. While your order will help with the planning, please know that the intent is to have lunches available to all – whether you ordered in advance or are able to make a donation.
Yes, you have more than a Friend in Pennsylvania. Come celebrate with ALL your Buckingham Meeting Friends!
