Come to Western Half-Yearly Meeting (May 18-21)

The 2018 Spring gathering of Western Half-Yearly Meeting (WHYM) will take place on the May long weekend (May 18-21) at the Sorrento Centre east of Kamloops. We invite all Friends and friends of Friends to join us in this vibrant gathering of Western Friends.

Directions and information about transportation options are available:

Registration information and the on-line form can be found here:

We strongly encourage Friends to register by the deadline of May 1, as we may have difficulty accepting late registrations.

The usual items will all be included in the Half-Yearly Meeting schedule – worship-sharing groups, special interest groups, Meetings for Worship including Business Meetings, and the phenomenal Family Night sharing of talents and fun. Friends are reminded to bring any books they may wish to pass along to other Friends; in light of the winding down of the Quaker Book Service, a book exchange table or tables will be set up.

We have one special opportunity available for those who are able to arrive in Sorrento on Thursday. If enough people are interested, we will spend Friday morning and early afternoon at the Tk’emlups Museum and Heritage Park in Kamloops, which has taken over the Kamloops Indian Residential School building. More information is included with the registration material, and in the link below.
