Attention United Church Women

As you are aware sweeping changes to the structure of the UCC took effect on January 1, 2019. Due to the remit ratified by General Council conferences and presbyteries ceased to exist as did UCW Presbyterials and Toronto Conference UCW Executive. The UCC went from 4 levels of governance to 3. Hence it is also necessary for UCW to reorganize. An organizational meeting for all women in Shining Waters (Region 10) will be held on January 24th at York Pines UC located on Lloydtown/Aurora Rd. just east of Hwy. #400. There is lots of parking and the building is accessible. Refreshments will be available at 10 am with the meeting to start at 10:30. Please bring your own lunch. This is your opportunity to be involved in the decision-making about what Shining Waters UCW, and other women's groups, will look like in the future. The four plans of organization developed at the October meeting will be reviewed and voted on by all those in attendance. Hopefully a basic governance model will be established. Your attendance and input are valued. Please attend and have your ideas and vote count. Blessings, Pat Edmonds, former secretary of Toronto Conference UCW
