Chairperson Sharon Bristol welcomed 18 executive members and reps from the four units to the February general meeting and asked everyone to stand for the repeating of the UCW purpose.

The following are the highlights for the meeting:

Plans are well underway for a ham and scallop supper to be held on March 17. This will be a one sitting meal with only prepaid tickets. There will also be a "small item" silent auction (tarts, cookies etc. would also be welcomed for the auction) run by Olivia Williams. If you have anything for the auction, please contact her.

Souper Sunday and the financial meeting will both be held on Feb. 25 following the service and Unit 1 will be on clean up.

The 51st annual Chignecto Presbyterial meeting, will be held at the Maritime Conference Building March 24 and our UCW is responsible for the memorial service. We need to find a unique way to acknowledge those members who have passed away in 2017. Please contact Jean Smith if you have any ideas or if you have any 2017 members names. We don't want to miss anyone.

The Congregational Care Committee has begun a 90s Club for our senior church members to be acknowledged with special cards and so on. They also have a Muffin Morning" scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 17 with special guests the NB-NS Border Rounders who will provide entertainment in the form of a round dance demonstration.

The Christian Life & Growth Committee is looking for a topic for their Lenten project, if you have any ideas please pass them on to Wanda Bickle.

They also want you to know that there will be a Lenten study beginning on Ash Wednesday, Feb 14 at 10 a.m. and then will move to Thursdays for the rest of Lent with a Post Easter gathering on April 5.

We are also reminded that the Summerside Biennial Registration (April 27-29) is due on March 23. This is always a memorable event so please check with Erika as she has the registration forms on her computer.

Corresponding Secretary, Kathleen Woodworth reported that thank you cards were sent to retiring unit leaders Lyn Estabrooks and Betty Duizer Logan along with birthday cards to Daphne Cullen, and Barbara Ralston as well as a get-well card to Timmy Howatt.

Thank you notes were received from the Tatamagouche Center and Zelda Spicer.

Reflection was presented by Unit 4's Jean Smith who shared a reading from the Observer called "A Warm Memory, A Heart Made Lighter" and ended by saying that sometimes a prayer can simply be a hug. She closed with a prayer.

Our next meeting is March 6th at 1:00 PM with Unit 1 offering the Reflection.
