This month, we’re saying farewell and thank you to our volunteer milestones editor, Mary Julia Street, who is retiring after more than 13 years of caring, thoughtful, and diligent service. Reflecting on her time in the role, she said, “The Milestones column was my favorite part of the magazine long before I became assistant or editor, and I have enjoyed continuing its look into the giving and gentle lives of Quakers.” 

Does that also sound like you or someone you know? Mary Julia’s departure means we’re looking for a new volunteer milestones editor. Learn more and apply at Friendsjournal​.org/​m​i​l​e​s​t​o​n​e​s​-​e​d​i​tor.
