Carol Barnhardt Chair a The GatheringOntario South and West Ontario Regional Gathering — September 29, 2018 
Hamilton District Christian High School, 92 Glancaster Rd., Ancaster, ON

It was a wonderful day. Another great gathering. Our groups came together and shared ideas, resources, and we heard from the Stephen Lewis Foundation and our community-based partners.
From Carol, "We were thoroughly blessed with Josephine Nabukenya, who told us how young women are moving forward and taking  control of their future. So inspiring!"

 Gathering2We thank our host, the Grandmothers of Steel.  

4Gs are part of ON S & W. We were honoured to be host group in the fall of 2014. (See some photos.)
