Quakers change name to ‘Whidbey Island Friends’

Whidbey Island Quakers have a new name.

“Whidbey Island Friends,” as the group is now called, shows its closer ties to regional and national Quaker groups, organizers said.

Regular worship meetings are held 4-5 p.m. each Sunday at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Whidbey Island, which is located at 20103 Highway 525 in Freeland.

This hour of silent worship may include spoken messages or sharing of spiritual journeys.

The group also meets at 3:30 p.m. the first Sunday of each month for an additional time of singing before the worship service. For information, go to
