FOCUS AND MANDATE

June 18: Old Marina Restaurant
Please contact Carla or the office for reservations.
A group of women from Knox Church go on weekend retreat in the spring and the fall. Retreats take place at Crieff Hills Community, the Presbyterian Church in Canada’s retreat centre in Puslinch. From Friday evening until Sunday afternoon, they gather at Dove House to share a restful and refreshing weekend of fellowship, discussion, and good food and to enjoy the natural beauty of the countryside.
Participants share in providing and preparing the meals for the group and in the cost of renting the retreat house. Dove House will accommodate 24 people and women are welcome to come for just part or all of the weekend.
2019 Spring Retreat dates: May 24 - 26.
We will meet on Friday at 6 pm for a delicious dinner at the Sunset Villa restaurant right next to Crieff Hills. Since dinner reservations must be made in advance, numbers are needed. After dinner we go to Dove House at Crieff Hills. During the weekend, shared teams are responsible for one meal. Let Yvonne know if you will be coming so that numbers can be organized for meals. But if you are not able to join us for the whole weekend, and find time at the last minute come anytime during the weekend. Enjoy the fellowship, fun, food and the beautiful surroundings at Crieff Hills. All women are welcome.
Please contact Yvonne in person or by email at email@example.com
