UMW Celebrations To Be Held Virtually

 

The WNCC UMW Program Committee has made the decision to cancel our Annual Celebration at Lake Junaluska for September 11-13, 2020.
 
Our Annual Celebration will be a virtual event via Zoom Webinar on Saturday, September 26 and Sunday, September 27. It will be necessary to register for the free Zoom Webinar. More information soon on this process. Watch the Annual Celebration page of our website for updates.  
 
Lake Junaluska has been very gracious in regard to our agreement. We’ve had a long relationship with them and we greatly appreciate the understanding they have shown to us. We look forward to the day when we can return to the Lake for another United Methodist Women event!
