As you know April 3rd was the day you were to have your registrations sent in to Jean Lerch for our State CWC Convention which is being held April 25th and 26th in Grand Rapids at the Hilton Hotel on 28th Street. Hopefully, I will see you there!

May I remind you to be sure and send in soon the names of any women from your group who have passed away in the last year so they can be mentioned during our Memorials. These should be sent to Nancy Beecher at: 8017 Aichebaun Street, Mount Morris, Michigan 48458 or e-mail:

You should also try and send to Maudie Shanks at: 513 Albee Lane, Midland, Michigan 48640, a letter telling about your choice for the "Woman of the Year" letting us know what makes them special to your group.

Remember to bring the theme baskets with you to convention for our "Silent Auction." This is always a lot of fun and the money received helps to pay for any unexpected event that may come up, and helps to defray costs.

Since Easter Sunday is April 20th, let me share a few words written by William White. "The heart of Christianity is not the cross but the open grave. If there were only the cross, Christ's death and nothing more, there would be no victory, only disaster and defeat. But there was an open grave! Christ is alive and his conquering of death opened all graves. He won; death has lost its sting! Take heart, "If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God." (taken from Colossians 3:1)

"The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come."Song of Solomon 2:12. May God be with you now and forever!!

My love,

Ann Hawkins, President
Michigan Christian Women Connection

Looking forward to seeing you soon!
