Tennessee Conference UMW Work Day May 1-2, 2015 at new UMCOR depot in Decatur, AL. The Call has details and hotel reservation information.

Important Correction:
UMW Dist. Secretary, Demetra Poellnitz, shared with me that her email address on the bottom of the Faith Lift Reservation Form that was included in the March Cumberland Express contained a typo; thus if you tried to email the form to her using that address, she has not received it.  Please resubmit your unit’s reservation form to Demetra at the following, corrected email address:  
If for some reason you did not receive the March Cumberland Express and do not have the Reservation Form, I am attaching a copy to this email.  PLEASE REMEMBER, THE EMAIL ADDRESS ON THE FORM IS INCORRECT AND YOU NEED TO USE THE ONE ABOVE.    
Please accept my apology for any inconvenience this may have caused. 
Our ladies in charge of this year’s Faith Lift, which focuses on Human Trafficking, have put their very hearts and souls into planning the day’s activities.  I hope many from your unit are planning to attend.  Each of us on your District Executive Team look forward to seeing you there.
