Erna Neufeldt welcomes incoming
President, Liz Koop

Greetings to you!
As the new President of Mennonite Women Canada, I thank-you for checking out our blog and I encourage you to leave a comment.  

The 59th Annual Meeting and Luncheon was held on Friday July 8 during the Mennonite Church Canada Assembly sessions at University of Waterloo in Waterloo, Ontario. Bev Suderman Gladwell of Kitchener shared a devotional on “Celebrating Connections” with the 150 women who attended. The business consisted of accepting past minutes and annual reports with Lois Mierau, our Secretary-Treasurer presenting our “Opportunities for Giving”. President Erna Neufeldt gave her final report, having served in that position for 6 years. She welcomed Liz Koop (myself) in her new role as President with a candle ceremony. If you are interested in more details please read the full report in the next Canadian Mennonite written by Barb Draper.

MW Canada’s Communications Committee was formally organized in January 2011 and is currently working on the second issue of our newsletter called “Connections” due out on September 15. (See side bar for link to newsletter.)

During the next few months I am planning to update this blog, so if things don’t look the same or certain items are missing the next time you check, please be understanding and patient. Feel free to comment on the progress!

Wishing you all a wonderful summer!
