Other Gatherings

Western Half-yearly

Fall WHYM is coming soon! We are gathering once again at Camp Valaqua in Water Valley, Alberta, from Friday to Monday on Thanksgiving Weekend, October 10 – 13. Western Half Yearly Meeting meets twice a year: in spring in Sorrento, BC and in fall in either Alberta or Saskatchewan. While Spring HYM is a big, bustling event, Fall WHYM is a wonderful opportunity to connect with friends and family in a small, informal setting. We will gather for worship and fellowship, Meeting for Worship for Business, special interest groups, Family Night, and of course Thanksgiving dinner! There is always lots of unstructured time for sharing music, balancing and good conversations with friends.

Click on the “More information” link below for details about location, cost, what to bring and what to expect. There is no formal registration form to fill out. Simply tell us how many people are coming and your accommodation preference by Monday, October 1.

Fees are collected on site. Send your info to registrar Paul Hopkins #55 – 9520 Bonaventure Drive SE, Calgary, AB. Contact us by phone to 403-698-1818 or by email to friendpaul@shaw.ca.

Please contact Stephanie Deakin the Visitation Coordinator if you would like to lead a Special Interest Group, or if you have any questions.

WHYM is an intergenerational community, with good representation from every age group, including young children, teens, elders and everything in-between. There are programs for all ages. Whether this is your first time, or you have been attending your whole life, there is something special in store for you at WHYM. All are welcome!

I look forward to seeing you at Camp Valaqua!

In Friendship,
Stephanie Deakin
WHYM clerk
