The new meeting room at the Davidson Friends Meetinghouse on South Street (David Boraks/DavidsonNews.net)
By DAVID BORAKS
Over the past two decades, the Davidson Friends Meeting migrated from meeting place to meeting place, growing to 40 to 45 people weekly. On Sunday, the group opened a new chapter, dedicating a permanent meeting house on South Street that members hope will be “a base to grow Quakerism.”
The new meetinghouse is at 625 South St., next to Davidson Elementary School and Calvary Presbyterian Church. The group bought the 1,100-square-foot house in 2007 and over the past nine months built a 2,353-square-foot addition that includes an octagonal meeting room and other open spaces.

The Angell family of Davidson reminds us that this Halloween will be the seventh year to collect candy donations after Trick o’ Treating for our troops overseas.
Collections dates are Nov. 1-9 and drop off bins are located in Ben & Jerry’s, Ace Hardware, Lake Norman YMCA, the Community School of Davidson and Kadi Fit. All types of candy, including chocolate, will be accepted and all making donations are encouraged to include a note, card, drawing or personalized message for service members. Charlotte USO is responsible for getting the “treats” to the troops.
Back in 2006 when Mom Dani Angell and children, Zac and Kara, started small by asking friends to donate candy to send to Dad Mike Angell who was deployed overseas. Although Mike has since retired from the military after 21 years of service, the family continues the tradition – knowing how grateful the troops are.

Click to donate to Davidson Elementary's UNICEF drive
On Halloween night (Wednesday, Oct. 31), children from Davidson Elementary School will be trick-or-treating for UNICEF to collect money for kids in need.
The program helps the students realize that they can do something to help the many children throughout the world who do not have enough food to eat, clothing to wear, or a place to live.
If you would like to contribute, please look for the trick-or-treaters with their UNICEF boxes or you can make a donation online. A UNICEF website has been created for Davidson Elementary at inside.unicefusa.org/goto/davidsonelementary
Davidson’s online goal is only $250 which is enough money to purchase a “School in a Box’ so that students in unsettled areas can learn anywhere.
