rotating decorative images from SCUA collections

Quakers meetings for worship were held in Putney, Vt., from 1942 to 1944, connected loosely to the Connecticut Valley Association of Friends. An independent meeting for worship was established there around 1963, uniting with Bennington Monthly the next year, before being set off as a monthly meeting of its own in 1969. Quaker City Unity Monthly Meeting was set off from Putney in 1993.



The records of Putney Monthly Meeting are sparse, consisting only of a handful of State of Society reports, a member's directory, and a letter of release and series of talks for minister John Calvi.
