Here it is! The registration form and information about this year's provincial gathering.
This is a very special year for the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign and attending the provincial gathering would be another way to celebrate our 10th Anniversary together.
As you know, Stephen Lewis and Alana Landsberg-Lewis will be at the Friday night event. We know what a tremendous speaker he is and how much current information Alana will be bringing from the recent South African Grandmothers Gathering and the World AIDS Conference. (Hope you've all had a chance to read the Grandmothers Statement from that event.) And to make this Gathering even more special, Ida, who spoke at our AGM two years ago, will be there along with other African grandmothers from Uganda and Zimbabwe. There will be opportunities for listening to what is happening with them and for joining in conversation. In this special 10th Grandmothers to Grandmothers celebration year, we know that many Alberta grandmothers will want to participate so we'll have an opportunity to connect with them as well.
Please take a look at all the information and consider being part of this tremendous event.
Marilyn Simmons will be coordinating the carpooling. If you are interested in traveling together, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
with Carpooling in the subject line.
Come join us to be inspired, to be energized for the next 10 years, and to have fun with so many Alberta Grandmothers!
Carla Lorfing, Marilyn Simmons
