On Saturday, October 5, 100 women of all ages attended an afternoon tea at Grace Mennonite Church on Niagara Street in St. Catharines, ON. The ladies of the church did a fantastic job with the decorations and goodies. The décor featured flowers from the garden displayed in mason jars, on tables covered with Ten Thousand Villages tablecloths. They even served Fair Trade Coffee from TTV! Thank you so much for hosting our WMCEC’s Fall Cluster Event this year. Our speaker was Julie Stobbe from “Mind Over Clutter” who presented the interesting concept of simplifying our lives by de-cluttering our living space. Julie, a member at The First Mennonite Church in Vineland, began her professional organizing business in 2006. She is a trained Professional Organizer through Professional Organizers in Canada. She also has two university degrees and is the mother of three adult children! An offering for projects sponsored by MW Canada and WMCEC was received with gratitude. Needless to say, we all had a great time.
