Representative Committee (RepCom) will meet on the ancestral land of the Wukchumni Tribe March 6 – 8, 2020 at Visalia Meetinghouse. Our gathering will be hosted by Quaker Oaks Farm ( As you make your arrangements, please plan to arrive for Friday dinner, if possible. If we have not finished our business by Saturday dinner, we may need to continue into Saturday evening or even on Sunday, so please plan accordingly.

Visalia is easily accessible by car, bus, or train. Flying is also possible, but difficult (there is a tiny airport in Visalia and a medium-sized airport in Fresno, about an hour away). Shuttles will be provided from Visalia stations to the Meetinghouse.

Friends are welcome to camp or sleep on the floor at the Lovett House at the Farm. Limited overnight hospitality will be available from Visalia Friends, Quaker Oaks Farm Board members and friends, and at the Lovett House. Friends who cannot camp or floor-sleep are encouraged to stay in nearby hotels or book an Airbnb. A list of recommended hotels will be provided. Doubling or tripling up in rooms will reduce the cost. Your Monthly Meeting may be able to help pay for your hotel. Financial assistance may also be available from PYM, but the details have not yet been worked out.

Thank you for your faith and understanding as we adjust to the challenges of hosting RepCom. The Presiding Clerk and I are grateful to Quaker Oaks Farm for their generous hospitality. Please contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to seeing you in Visalia!

In peace,
Sharon Gates
