Greater Porltand Feb 2 Meeting Cancelled

The Greater Portland Chapter of MGS has announced that they will be cancelling their meeting scheduled for Saturday, February 2nd.

Carol McCoy writes: "The Prophet Gordon B. Hinckley, president of the LDS Church, has passed away. There is a memorial service scheduled for the same time as our meeting this Sat Feb 2nd. It will be via satellite in the large room where we were to meet. Even though the local Bishop would have permitted us to meet in our old room, it does not feel right to have our meeting. We feel that it would be disrespectful to have a meeting at the same time as a funeral (celebration.)"

As a result, we will have the meeting topic of the Shakers in June and keep the rest of the schedule the same. For more information, visit
