Donations in Memory of Isaac Miller

Hello Friends,

A message from Ellen Helmuth after New Brunswick Monthly Meeting’s meeting for worship for  business: some interest was expressed in making donations in memory of Isaac Miller, the Young Friend who passed away suddenly earlier this year.  A few options were put forwards:

  • NBMM is setting up the “Isaac Miller Memorial Fund”, which will support Quaker Youth and Quaker Youth Activities. They can accept cheques made out to “NBMM” (with a note specifying that it’s for the Memorial Fund) and sent to their Treasurer Lesley Read (contact the webminder for her address). Tax deductible receipts are available.

Isaac was an avid fan of skateboarding and film-making; a pair of local non-profits were suggested as well.

  • Skateboard Fredericton, Inc.
    520 Queen St.
    Fredericton, NB
    E3B 1B9
  • New Brunswick Filmmakers’ Co-operative
    Charlotte St. Arts Centre
    P.O. Box 1537
    Fredericton, NB
    E3B 4Y1
