Memorials for Mia Kissil Hewitt

Mia, a life-long Powell House community member, recently passed away. 

Mia wanted a musical memorial that could feature choral and vocal music. This will be in a space large enough for her legion of friends and loved ones. No date has been set, but it is not likely to occur before May 1.  That date and place will be announced later. 

For now, a small worship service at Chatham-Summit Friends Meeting will occur on the afternoon of March 10. Space will be very limited. and the local community will fill the space.

At Powell House, we will be convening a simultaneous meeting for worship here at Powell House in Pitt Hall on

Saturday March 10th

at 1:00 p.m.

We invite any F/friends who would like to attend to join us.

We will have snacks after our gathering.  It will be helpful to know how many people may attend.

Overnight accommodations are also available on a limited basis here for Friday or Saturday nights. Call 518-794-8811 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to reserve a room and/or RSVP.
