Oct 13th, 3:00 PM: Memorial Meeting for Dalmer Hoskins
Friends and family of Dalmer Hoskins will gather at BFM on Sunday, October 13, at 3:00 p.m. to celebrate his life. They had been a part of the BFM community for only a few years, so many of us may not have known them well. Pastoral Care has been in touch with their two children, Nora and Gabe, who live in Connecticut. Irene has moved to a care facility near them. Dalmer came to Quakerism as a college student at Earlham College. Both he and Irene spent many years in Geneva, Switzerland, with the International Social Security Association (ISSA), a UN-related specialized agency. Dalmer eventually became its Secretary General. Dalmer was passionate about the need to improve the living conditions of older persons in aging societies, including their income security, health, and long-term care. He focused particularly on issues of equality and access. He was active at both regional and local levels of government to promote coordinated national aging action plans, always emphasizing the critical role of Social Security in such strategies. Memorial meetings are very special events which are often first introductions to Quakerism for many people. It would be very helpful to the overall tenor of the event to have a strong representation of the BFM community. Please come even if you did not know the Hoskins well.
