It is with sad hearts that the Women's Weekend Planning Team has decided to cancel this year's event.
We want all of you, our dedicated attendees, to stay healthy and safe during this uncertain time. We know there will be ample opportunity to laugh, love, learn, play and worship together at Women's Weekend 2021.

Thank you for your continued support year after year. Women's Weekend would not be the same without YOU!

Hugs to you all, and we'll see you May 14-16, 2021.
Your Eliot Women's Weekend Planning Team
