LWM Meetings

Due to current circumstances resulting from the Coronavirus Epidemic with its ever-changing and uncertain implications impacting our personal lives, normalcy has become greatly compromised on all levels. Because of this, I as President of LWML, am announcing the CANCELLATION of both the LWML Board Meeting and the General LWML Meetings until further notice. I suspect, the possibility of holding our activities until January 2021.
Of course, I am always HOPEFUL that LWML will be able to do something for the upcoming holidays. But, only Our Lord knows.
