I. NAME AND BOUNDARY CHANGES
During a special Sacrament Meeting on Sunday, February 26, 2006, the
following changes were made to the names and boundaries of the three
French-speaking wards in Geneva. Elder Gaag presided at this meeting
which was attended by members of all three wards. These changes were
made by the First Presidency, taking into account the proposal
submitted by the Geneva Switzerland Stake Presidency by way of the
Europe West Area Presidency. They were unanimously sustained by the
members of the three wards.
GENEVE RIVE DROITE WARD covers the area on the right bank (to your
right when facing in the direction of the flow of water from Lake
Geneva to the River Rhone). The ward is bound by Lake Geneva, the
River Rhone, the French-Swiss border, and the Lausanne Stake border.
(The Geneva Stake Center is located within the boundaries of the
Geneve Rive Droite Ward, but will continue to serve all four wards in
GENEVE SALEVE WARD covers the area below (south of) the River Rhone
and the River Arve. (Note: The River Arve flows into the River Rhone).
The ward is bound by the River Rhone, the River Arve, and the
French-Swiss border in the south.
GENEVE RIVE GAUCHE WARD covers the area on the left bank. The ward is
bound by Lake Geneva, the French-Swiss border, and the River Arve.
GEX WARD boundaries remain unchanged.

side of the border. Otherwise, the ward boundaries remain unchanged.
