SFFMC Summer Campouts: save the dates!

Following up on our successful in-person Labor Day 2021 campout at Camp Herms in the El Cerrito Hills, SFFMC has reserved Camp Herms again for campouts for the 2022 weekends of Memorial Day (May 27-30) and Labor Day (September 2-5). Camps will start on Friday afternoon or Saturday morning. July 4 weekend is also a possibility but is not yet resolved. Everything is subject to change depending on the covid-19 situation. We’ll post updates on this website and in the folknik as the dates get closer.

Online Camp Harmony was a success!

Our 2021-2022 online “camp” (from December 30 to January 2) had over 70 workshops and over 500 people registered, from five continents!  Thanks very much to SFFMC’s Camp Harmony Committee and all the other volunteers and workshop leaders for the many, many hours of hard work it took to make this happen.

Member directory now online – check & update your info!

The SFFMC member directory is now online at https://www.sffmc.org/member-directory!  The directory can only be viewed by current members who are logged into the website. If you haven’t logged in before and you have trouble logging in, see the instructions at https://www.sffmc.org/update-your-info.

A few things to know:
• The directory only shows current members who want to be shown in the directory. Expired members and members who prefer not to be shown in the directory do not appear.
• The directory only shows the information that a member wants to show, which can range from just the member’s name to complete contact information, with various options in between.
• The directory listings are shown alphabetically by member’s first name. This is not ideal, but it would be difficult for us to modify. However, the directory is fully searchable by first or last name by using the Search Members box on the right.
• If your own listing has incorrect information or you want to change your directory listing preferences, you can make changes at https://www.sffmc.org/member-profile. If you run into problems, contact the SFFMC membership coordinator at membership@sffmc.org .
