Highlights of the 55th National UCW Conference held at UBC July 2017 were presented by Madelyn Craven, Marcia Smith, and Marcia Foreman on Jan 11th at TMUC to 50 attendees.
The theme was “Celebrating Spirit” and the music of Linnea Good, the reflections of Ann Mortifee [plenary speaker at the conference], and the reports on the projects of training Morogoro Birth Attendants and of Bread Not Stones were given. Linda Garratt told about TMUC’s participation in the Starfish Backpack Program.
A surprise celebration was held after the presentations to honour Madelyn Craven for more than 50 years of service to the UCW. Madelyn was the recipient of a plaque from TMUC’s UCW and heard messages of appreciation from the FV Presbytery, Provincial, and National UCW Presidents.
A special cake with ice-cream and fruit was enjoyed by all.
