ACW Annual 2020 CANCELLED
Diocese of Algoma ACW Board
Greetings: Archbishop Anne, Diocese of Algoma Executive Board, Anglican Church Women members:
formal, associated groups and supporters.
I wish to inform you of the consideration and decision to cancel/defer the Diocese of Algoma ACW
Annual Meeting in Thunder Bay scheduled for May 26-28, 2020. We arrived at our decision to do so
now, so as to be sure we would be taking all necessary care and concern for the health and safety of our
membership, and the many contacts involved in travelling throughout the expanse of our deaneries. We
will keep busy and in touch–>anti-Covid-19<– style and RE-CONVENE in Thunder Bay in May 2021!!!
Please contact the Prince Arthur Hotel regarding cancelling reservation of rooms and retention of credit
card sureties, and make contact with travel providers such as airlines, bus, train, car rentals etc., for
reimbursement or booking cancellations. Should you encounter problems with credit for tickets, please
advise the Treasurer for assistance. Registration fee reimbursement procedures are in process.
We are working on a ‘special’ edition of the Algoma Newsletter using all of the relevant information for
the Annual, and would appreciate the deaneries adding more news since January, coping strategies, and
chatty or fun items to include for all, and especially those who couldn’t have made the trip, to enjoy.
Please gather up your Thank Offerings for 2020 as soon as possible and forward as one cheque or
money order from each deanery if you can do so, in order for us to donate to ‘Giving with Grace’.
Keep safe, happy, and in communication with everyone, looking forward to summer or fall meetings!
May our Lord bless you with his peace and patience as you deal with this situation!
Your sister in His service,
