Have you ever attended a Manitou Youth Forum event?  If so, we would love to hear from you!  June 8 – 10th will be our last gathering of MYF ever.  We are hoping that former MYF participants would be willing to join us for a banquet dinner on Saturday June 9th or if not able to attend, would send video or written greetings.  We would love to hear about your favourite MYF memory – to hear about the friendships that were formed and the adventures you had.  For more informationor to RSVP – please contact Sue at the Manitou Conference Office at  office@manitouconference.ca  Please contact her by this Sunday (June 3rd).  Thanks!
