Also attached for those who might not already be receiving them are three just-published pdf documents: (a) the Doncaster Conversation Club Newsletter which reports monthly on their work with refugees at the Quaker Meeting House in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, England, (b) Around Europe from the Quaker Council for European Affairs (QCEA) reporting on actions to promote Quaker values at the European level, and (c) QAADRANT from Quaker Action on Alcohol & Drugs.
 
At our BLYM Meeting for Business on Sunday, 9 June, it was suggested that the Newsletter consider conducting and publishing interviews of members, and I am planning to do that. I have had contact with the past editor of the Friend, Ian Kirk-Smith and the current editor, Joe Jones, and they both have included an interview from time to time in the weekly editions of the Friend that provide a good model of how interviews can add to a periodical.
 
I would also like to say with gratitude that the number of BLYM Members who have contributed articles, announcements, book reviews, and poems to the newsletter in the two and a half years that I have been serving as editor has been heartwarming and I hope that they and others will feel moved to contribute more material for future issues.
 
Please let me know if you no longer wish to receive the Newsletter.
If you know others who might be interested in receiving it, please invite them to contact me.
 
• In Friendship • Met hartelijke groeten • Bien amicalement
• Mit freundlichen Grüßen • En amistad • In amicizia • Na amizade
