    I just don’t remember when it was the last time the Memorial falls on Saturday. Anyway, do they meet for field service tomorrow(Saturday)? Do they have their meetings on Sunday?

    About 100 miles up the road from you, there will be field service tomorrow as well as a Sunday meeting. No field service for me but there's a half a chance that I'll be at both the Memorial and the Sunday talk. Bad weekend...


    Oh yes ...Final Push to ditch all those Memorial Invitations - otherwise tomorrow you wake up all guilty coz you didn't get rid of them.

    Off to hairdressers to get the hair done for the great Pass-Around Cebelration tonight

    Polishing of shoes.

    Clean the car as you may be giving lifts to newbies etc

    As our Gran was the maker of the 'Bread' and supplier of the wine she always made a dinner for us to come home to where we polished off the rest of the Wine.

    and AMAN to that

    Didn't they start cancelling the meetings the week of the Memorial like 20 years ago or something? Or did that new light fade away.

    No. The rule is you don't have the meeting (it is cancelled, tho' very rarely zealot elders might still rearrange it) if it falls on memorial day.

    A hall shared by 4 congs in my large town is organising its memorials like this.

    Cong 1 - using KH at 7.30 pm

    Cong 2 - using KH at 9.00 pm

    Congs 3/4 - renting a community hall at the same times as above.

    They "rotate" as to who gets the main hall and who gets to rent.

    Now one of those congs normally has its weekend meeting on a Saturday and is cancelling it completely. The other three who meet on a Sunday will meet at the KH at the normal times.
