On Fifth Sundays we often share Meeting for Worship with Visalia Friends Meeting. Meetings are held in various locations on these days. Please see below for more information on the locations.
Here are the planned locations for the Fifth Sundays in 2017:
Visalia Friends Meeting is located at Quaker Oaks Farm, 17208 Avenue 296, Visalia, CA 93292. Click to see a map and directions. Meeting for Worship is followed by a potluck lunch.
Cricket Hollow is located on the south side of Olson Avenue, west of the bridge, across from Reedley Beach. Picnic tables, barbecues, and restrooms are available. From Fresno, take 99 south Exit 121 (Manning Ave.). Proceed east on E. Manning Ave. approximately 11.5 miles. Bear to your right after crossing the Kings River bridge; this leads you onto W. Upper Bridge Ave. from which you must turn right (south) on Reed Ave. Drive on Reed Ave. before making a right turn onto W. Olson Ave. Cross the bridge and a left turn will take you into Cricket Hollow Park.
This is our regular location. Please see the home page for more information and directions.
When we host a shared Meeting for Worship with Visalia Meeting, Meeting for Worship begins at 10:30am, to allow Friends from Visalia Friends Meeting extra time to get there. Afterwards there is a potluck lunch.
There are some Fifth Sundays (often in June, July or December) for which we decide not to share Meeting for Worship with Visalia Meeting. In this case Meeting for Worship begins at the usual time of 10:00am, and there is no potluck lunch.
