Recharter Support Night October 14 at Great Falls East Stake Center

Every unit is welcomed and encouraged to attend the recharter support night on Tuesday, October 14, 6:30 pm at the Mormon church behind the Eagles Manor. We ask that every unit representative bring a laptop and a current unit roster. The goal is to get every unit’s recharter complete in a brief online session. Barring that, we hope to get close to the above goal, and/or spread goodwill at the same time, as recharter can be a burden. See you there.
