Thank you to all who participated in and supported the UUSC Guest at Your Table Luncheon. $1007 was sent to UUSC from our congregation, a tremendous contribution! Thanks to all our young people and parents who helped with the luncheon – setting up on Saturday afternoon, serving on Sunday, and cleaning up after the event. Thanks also to Annette Pratt for providing the delicious bread, to Roze Bentley, Gisela Moffit and Susan Powers for providing the tasty soups, to Kris Los for the wonderful desserts, and to Cynthia Damer for providing the beverages and butter; your contributions were deeply appreciated.
On Sunday, April 19, from 1-3 pm, Laura Frey and Norma Bailey will offer a two-hour program for young people (middle school and older) and adults to learn about what happened in Selma, how the UUA was involved, what’s happening with the Voting Rights Act, and what we can do. The program will include video, Laura Frey sharing about her recent visit to Selma, and conversation among ourselves. Please put this valuable opportunity on your calendar!
It turns out that the UUFCM was represented not only by the UUA and other sister UU fellowships at the jubilee observance in Selma on March 8 – our own Laura Frey made the journey to Selma to walk the bridge with President Obama, Rep. John Lewis, and a few thousand other folks. She has shared some of her photos with us and has written a reflection of this experience. read more...
