The AGM is coming up on May 26, 2024, after the service. Committee and task force chairs are reminded to get their reports for the year in to Elaine by April 30.

The Building Connections dinners were a very positive experience.  It was an opportunity for Westwood members to get to know each other better.

The tour of Kihcihkaw Aski for May 12 is filling up quickly. It is almost sold out so register quickly if you want to attend. There is a waitlist once all tickets are spoken for.

Save the date for a Karaoke night, June 8, in support of YESS (Youth Empowerment and Support Services).

Chorus (the annual national conference for Unitarian Universalist young adults ages 18-35) will be staying in the Westwood building on the May long weekend. They will need volunteers to drive people between Westwood and UCE and pick people up from the airport. Contact Lorian if you are able to volunteer.
