First Annual Anniversary General Meeting : Wednesday, April 9, 2008

United Women's Forum is excited to invite you to attend our FIRST annual Anniversary General Meeting celebration on Wednesday, April 9, 2008. This event will hallmark our fantastic growth and development as an organization over the past year. We strive to keep our forum educated and involved on issues which affect the family, the community and the nation. Won't you join with us the second Wednesday of April, at 10:00 am at the Bountiful Public Library to hear what is going on in our Forum and with community issues?

Our guest speaker this month will be Ike Ferguson who is well known in the field of Humanitarian Service. For the past 7 years, Ike and his wife Gloria have lived in West Africa where Ike was responsible for multi-faceted community humanitarian relief and the development of programs in up to ten West African nations for the LDS Church. Additionally, he has had a lifetime of service in welfare and humanitarian related fields. The topic he will address is: "All Men are Created Equal" and he will help us understand what kind of service is most beneficial to those in need.

Because this is our Anniversary Meeting, we plan to serve a light lunch and also have a "donation" fund raiser to help with some of our expenses. We have not previously asked for any donations from the forum and guests but since our numbers are growing so quickly, our expenses are growing too. We have miscellaneous costs which have been funded by the Steering Committee but we intend to be a "not for profit" organization and spend out our expenses each year. Your "free-will" donation will be appreciated but is not mandatory for your attendance.

Please join us at this wonderful event!
