Fair traveling distance and zone representation has been a guiding principal with the District office in scheduling District Board meetings each year. Moving the location for meetings around the District nicely accomplishes several things. It affords each member a chance to visit other congregations while not having to always drive too far, and it extends an opportunity for congregations to become more closely involved in the work of the District. But due to the distance, we never held board meetings at the Genesis Church of the Brethren
in Putney, Vermont. So, we decided to rent a bus and spend a weekend with our friends at Genesis in the little village of Putney.
