The Women’s Group gathers in person or on Zoom on the first Saturday of each month at 10:15 for beverages and conversation.  The program begins at 10:30. There usually is a short business meeting at 11:30, followed by lunch when possible. All are welcome!

Less than a decade ago MVUUF’s Administrator and Communications Director Jeannie Piekos was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of uterine cancer. When her friend, Filmmaker Will Hommeyer, learned of her diagnosis, he asked if she would allow him to film her cancer journey. Surprisingly, she agreed. What began as a primal attempt to hold on to a friend that might otherwise slip from his grasp, became a way for both of them to come face-to-face with mortality and to realize what is truly essential in life.

At our November 5th meeting, we will view the film Buoyancy and dialogue with Jeannie afterward about the lessons she gained from this journey and how she made peace with her potentially fatal diagnosis.

All women of the fellowship are invited to attend even if you are not currently a Women’s Group member. If you have a friend who might benefit from viewing the documentary, please invite her to attend also.
