It’s time to start thinking about the upcoming Women and Religion Retreat. Please put the date on your calendars, and spread the word.
Feb 27 – March 1, 2015, with Thursday arrivals coming on the 26th.
The theme will be:
“Generations of Women: How are we the same – How are we different?”
In keeping with that Generations theme, and to keep anyone feeling obligated to do “homework”, it has been decided to have the informal, fireside, book group choice be one that is likely many women have already read. I, personally, haven’t read it yet and so am looking forward to discovering

In review, amoung all the inspiring events and features of other years:
Ropes Course, hopefully not in the rain this time, since we didn’t get to do it last year.
Remembering Rosemary Matson
A memory corner, to honor ALL our foremothers. Please bring photos so that they might be displayed.
In keeping with our generations theme, a “hope for the future corner”, please bring photos of daughters or, younger women whom we hope will carry on the torch.
Early check in Thursday night, includes Friday breakfast (additional fee)
Saturday only, no overnight stays (reduced fee)
Below is a list of the UUA PCD congregations and the “Rep” (in teal) who has volunteered to spread the word there last year. I hope the same women will be willing to take up that mantle again this year.
If you can help or know anyone at anyone at any of the “unclaimed” congregations, please help get the word out.
