Friends of the Shakers

From Shaker Pedia

Each August, Friends travel to Maine from all over the world to meet at the Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village for Friends Weekend. On Saturday, unique workshops on Shaker life, history, music, and crafts are presented, along with special walking tours of the village grounds. Friends from "away" enjoy seeing the newest museum exhibits. Saturday night often ends with a candlelit gathering in the Shaker Meetinghouse to sing traditional Shaker songs. It's an opportunity for people with a shared interest in the Shakers and all aspects of Shakerism to meet and get to know one another, or to renew friendships. For many, Friends Weekend is a time for renewal of the spirit as well as a chance to share in the community's heritage.

The group publishes the Clarion with great details as to the latest in the Shaker world.
