This past June saw the NADC meetings experiment with two regional gatherings and experience a NADC first. As you can see in the pictures above, we had deacons of all varieties, including pelicans, deer and Homo sapiens!
Our central/south meeting was held at Sonrise CRC in Ponoka, on the heals of one of the walking segments for the Walk for Common Ground (pictured above with Wampum Belt). It featured a guest presentation by Tarence Barg from the Canadian Food Grains Bank.
The next evening was the North/Central meeting, held at the Lady Flower Gardens in Edmonton, where we experienced a walk and talk with our hosts and were joined by the other deacons you see in the pictures. Muriel Hogarth toured us around the property and our meeting was comfortably hosted in the yurt, arranged by a gracious invitation from Doug Visser and Kelly Mills.
See the attached files below, of the draft minutes of those meetings, for details as well as web links for mentioned features and presentations.
