Sounding Board Notes- April 2018

Fun and interesting notes from our April 4, 2018 Board meeting

  • Sunday, May 27th is our Annual General Meeting following the service. This is a special one – 10 years since Rev. Anne became our minister! Celebration is in order! Watch for the notice and plan to attend. Everyone is welcome for the celebration and meeting but only members may vote. Not sure if you are a member? Please check with Linda, membership@westwoodunitarian.ca
  • The Stewardship campaign Strengthening Our Interdependent Web is going well. We have had wonderful testimonials from Heather, Marj, Kevin and Brenda. We are heartened that so many people have sent in their pledges and we expect to come close to our goal. We have not heard from a few people so will be contacting them by April 15 so that we can finalize our budget proposal for the Annual General Meeting. Thanks for your generosity!
  • PRIDE. Pam and Richard, who won the auction bid to choose a sermon topic, have chosen a Pride based theme Nurturing Youth which Rev. Anne will be delivering on May 13. The 2018 Pride service Why We March will be on June 3. We were pleased that both services are now posted on the Pride Web Calendar and PRIDE GUIDE.
  • U of A Campus Ministry. Rev. Anne will be resigning her role in Campus Ministry at the end of this campus year to use her time more effectively in other areas.
  • Carl Ulrich is hosting our Westwood online participation in the CUC Annual General Meeting which is taking place in Hamilton on May 18th, 2018. Everyone is welcome to attend from 11 AM to 2 PM. Carl and Leigh Bornn are our appointed delegates who may vote on behalf of our congregation.
  • The Endowment Committee submitted two motions to the Board regarding this year’s funding applications. These were approved and will be announced at our AGM on May 27th.
  • The Board is exploring modest renovations to provide an accessible washroom on our main level. We are seeking more detailed information before we know if this will be feasible.
  • The Board accepted with regrets the change in status from Member to Friend of Grant Harlton.
  • Nomination season is here again! Fortunately four Board members (President, Vice President,
  • Secretary and Treasurer) have one more year in their terms so we do not need to fill those this year but we will be looking for keen individuals to join our happy crew as Trustees. We also have openings for new elected members for the Endowment and Financial Review Committees. There are also other opportunities for people to deepen their relationships within Westwood in Membership, Worship, Children and Youth, the Committee on Shared Ministry, etc. Contact Brenda Jackson for more information, board@westwooduntarian.ca
