First Friday Potluck
Our monthly gathering to share a meal and have a fun social time together is happening Friday, August 1st at 6:00 p.m., with Norma Bailey hosting. Simply bring a dish to pass and your week-worn weary self to the UUFCM social hall for nourishment and rejuvenation - at least as much as can be gained from sharing a meal, conversation and laughter with friends. We hope you'll join us!
CUUPS Celebrates Lughnasa
Covenant of UU Pagans (CUUPS) will have a Lughnasa Ritual at the UU Center this Saturday, August 2nd at 7:00 p.m. This ritual is the first harvest festival of the year. We celebrate the bounty of late summer that will help us to thrive for another year. We gather at 6:30 p.m., hold ritual promptly at 7 p.m., and our potluck takes place between 7:30 and 8 p.m. Please bring a dish to pass and/or a dessert to share.
Movie Night is every second Saturday at 7 p.m. at the UU Center. The movie for Saturday, August 9th is “Barbara”. In 1980 East Germany, Barbara, a doctor, is reassigned to a small rural hospital as punishment for trying to find work in the West. Biding time until her lover can help her defect, Barbara begins to suspect that her new boss knows of her plans. An intense drama that asks us to consider moral and practical choices. The German nomination for the 2012 Academy Award; rated 95% by Rotten Tomatoes. Contact Jim Dealing with any questions - firstname.lastname@example.org or (989) 772-0269.
I loaf and invite my soul,
I lean and loaf at my ease observing
A spear of summer grass.
