About the Friends
The Friends is an all-volunteer group drawn from the ranks of Montgomery scholars and admirers across North America. This photo shows (most of) the dedicated group who came together to form the first Friends' Board at the LM Montgomery Conference in Charlottetown in June 2012.

Thanks for an amazing conference!
After spending so much time planning and preparing for the conference, it seems impossible to think that it is all done for another year.
L.M. Montgomery and War was an incredibly successful conference with inspiring speakers, engaging discussions, fascinating presentations and memorable friendships. Thank you to everyone who took part in this year's conference. We hope that you enjoyed yourselves and that you'll be back in 2016!
If you have questions, don't hesitate to contact the LMMI Conference Committee.
