Guest at Your Table, the education and fundraising effort for the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, is currently on at UUFA. Beginning before Thanksgiving, it runs until Martin Luther King Sunday in mid January.
For those who wish to make an end-of-year donation tax-deductible for 2014, please send a check to Lois Whealey, 14 Oak St. Athens OH 45701, or give your donation to her at the Christmas Eve celebration or the Sunday, December 28 service.
She will be sending checks in by Dec. 30.
Remember, this is the 75th anniversary for UUSC, which began with the trip in 1939 of the Rev. Waitstill and Mrs. Martha Sharp, who left their young children with relatives to go to Europe before the fall of Prague. They helped with refugee relief there and elsewhere during World War II. Prague was the site of the largest Unitarian congregation in the world at the time. Its minister, originator of the Flower Communion, would die in one of Hitler’s concentration camps.
Please also check out the UUSC website for merchandise benefitting the national and international work of the UUSC, or continue collecting cash for the Guest at Your Table. And have Happy Holidays! Lois Whealey, UUSC Local Representative.
