HARC Annual Meeting: Celebrating 75 years!

January 11 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

January is HARC’s Annual Meeting and this year is extra special as we celebrate 75 years of service to the community!  This will be a joyous time to learn a little of the history of Washington County Council of Churches (dba Hagerstown Area Religious Council) and celebrate our work together.  All are welcome!

At this celebration meeting, we will also:

~ Welcome special guest Emily Keller, Mayor of Hagerstown
~ Welcome new, or nearly-new, clergy (including the new rabbi)
~ Do a little business – vote on the 2022 budget, vote on officers/board members, etc.

This meeting has been moved to Zoom only due to the high COVID numbers in our community.  Please RSVP and we will send you a link.  Members should have already received a link by email.

We had also planned to honor major donor Mike Johnston & the God’s Grace Fund and honor some special volunteers at this meeting, but will hold off until we can do this in-person.


HARC meetings are typically held on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 12:30 pm, except July and August, with an occasional evening meeting.  While COVID positivity rates are high, our meetings will begin at 1:00 to give time for lunch prior to the meeting.  When meeting in-person, the location typically rotates among different houses of faith, giving each member congregation an opportunity to host.  If in-person meetings are deemed unsafe for our members, they are held on Zoom.
