For more than 55 years, the United Church Women (UCW) have met to converse, plan ways to support the church and its congregants, and learn from invited speakers. We meet on the first Wednesday of every month at 1:30 PM in the back Hall of the Church for a short meeting, and then like to enjoy a beverage and something for the other hand after the program. We also support our Church and community by catering for funeral lunches and dinners, hosting the annual Cookie Walk (held on the third Saturday in November, at 10:00 AM).
Some of the things we did in 2019: heard about walking Hadrian's Wall, heard about Stony Plain's new Library, and visited the U of A Botanical Gardens.
UCW "Recreated by the Stony Plain United Church" Greeting Card Project: The "Recreators" meet on Thursday mornings in the Back Hall from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Since the group's conception, we have recycled thousands of greeting cards by replacing the backs and adding creative embellishments. We always appreciate the donation of used greeting cards "with the backs intact", as we need the spines in order to add the new backs, and the verses, which are also reused. Lately we have branched out into other projects using the greeting cards, and are always open to suggestions.
We invite anyone who is interested in our creative group to come and check us out on Thursday mornings. The coffee is always on!
