District 86 Spring Conference 2015 – Friday April 24th to Sunday April 26th | Richmond Hill, ON

“Cultivating a sense of adventure allows us to engage in our daily lives with a sense of resiliency, curiosity, and willingness to take risks. Welcoming surprises teaches us to become more adept at connecting with others, and to live with a deep sense of purpose.

The focus of this conference will be learning to live and lead with the outlook that life is A SURPRISING ADVENTURE!”
