Sweet Discourse: Women in Colonial VA Society
 
Plan to join us on Wednesday, October 24 at 7:00 p.m. for the next in the continuing series of Sweet Discourse presentations sponsored by the Bruton Guides Ministry and the Heritage Center Committee.
    The program will feature a presentation by Anne Conkling, who will discuss the role of women in Colonial Virginia Society, particularly in connection with the church.
    A longtime Williamsburg resident and Bruton member, Anne is active in business and our community. She has served on the Board of Directors for Big Brothers, Big Sisters, the Salvation Army, and as a volunteer in the school system. At Bruton she has been a guide, Guide trainer, one of the Guide Coordinators, member of the choir, Lay Reader, Lay Eucha-ristic Visitor, mentor for the Education for Ministry Program (out of Sewanee, University of the South), helper in Sunday School and Bible School, served on the Adult Education Committee, and two terms on the Bruton Vestry. Anne is a member of the Friends of Bruton Committee and editor of The Bruton Fount. She has been active with Daughters of the King, and a Mentor for Disciples of Christ in Community.  
    For 26 years Anne served as a guide at the Jamestown Island church, and during those years led Noonday Prayer every Sunday for the visitors to the island. Currently she works with the Collins Group, publishers of Next Door Neighbors Magazine, is a lecturer for the Roads Scholar Program, and a mentor for Education for Ministry (EfM). She spent much time on the WHRO video project featuring Bruton. Anne has an encyclopedic knowledge of the history of Bruton Parish Church and Colonial Williamsburg.
    You will not want to miss this very active lady's presentation, so mark your calendars now to attend Sweet Discourse on Wednesday, October 24. Coffee and dessert will be provided at 6:30pm, followed by the program.
