Several ward boundaries were realigned in the Gilbert Arizona Stapley Stake last Sunday. Two wards were renamed: the Harris Ward is now the Cooley Ward, and the Madera Ward is now the Gilbert Ward. The original Cooley and Gilbert wards were lost during the last boundary changes in 2007, when the stake went from 11 wards down to 9. Last year, the Pioneer YSA Ward was reassigned to the Tempe Arizona YSA Stake, leaving the Gilbert Arizona Stapley Stake with 8 wards. When the stake was originally created in 1981, the boundaries were 700 square miles. Now it is only 9 square miles.
