Three anonymous friends of our community have joined forces in hope and support for our community to fund PFoD's 2015 budget by offering this matching fund. Anyone who pledges a new or increased monthly donation for 2015 by the end of the year will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $500 per month, which is $6,000 for the year.  This means that your $5 monthly, new or increased pledge becomes $10, $30 becomes $60, and $100 becomes $200.

Donate now to take part in this pledge drive.



The Book Club (downstairs) moves from Monday night to Tuesday night beginning January 13th, 2015 

Beginning Tuesday, January 12, we will discuss "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" by Robert Pirsig.


“The study of the art of motorcycle maintenance is really a miniature study of the art of rationality itself. Working on a motorcycle, working well, caring, is to become part of a process, to achieve an inner peace of mind. The motorcycle is primarily a mental phenomenon….The real cycle you’re working on is yourself.” — From the book
