UUFA – Sunday Online & More!

by Patrick McGee, March 21, 2020

BULLETIN: For Sunday, March 22nd it *looks* *like* we’ll have services ONLINE via ZOOM with Rev. Rollins at 11am, so please grab a cup of coffee, settle down on your couch, and join Rev. Don Rollins via Zoom. In advance, please download the Zoom app to your computer, laptop, tablet, or smart phone, and watch for an email with details.

IMPORTANT for UUFA Members: Please expect an email from Barb soon regarding our annual meeting and fellowship business. Thanks in advance for your response to that email.  If we don’t receive a response from you, we’ll try again or contact you by phone or otherwise. Thanks!

New “UUFA Friends March 2020” Facebook Group. Unlike our Facebook page, which is public, this is a private group for UUFA members and friends. If you want to join, let Barb or Wenda know, and we’ll add you.

Wisdom from Rhys:
Q- How do you feel about staying home and social distancing?

Rhys- It’s okay for someone like me that is not that social. I like staying home with my mom and playing with my LEGOS, drawing and playing outside. And you should probably add my Kindle. But for someone that is more social it might be hard for them. It’s for the safety of other and so you don’t get sick and accidentally spread it. Pangly – the pangolin/human hybrid, says “Stay home kids, so that you don’t accidentally spread the virus.”

News from the Barmans

   The Barmans are doing well, as I hope everyone else is at this time.  We have the luxury of living in the woods and being able to wonder around our rural area. The wild flowers are starting to peek out. They bring me such joy each spring.
    We continue to work for the Athens Food Pantry. We have changed how we do the packing and how we distribute the food to prevent any transfer of germs. More people need food now more than ever.
    I’m making some masks that I will donate to volunteers. Depending on how many I’ll get made, I’ll donate to others.
    We would love to hear how you are doing.

P.S. From Natalie: The Athens County Visitors Bureau has a list of food pantries, free meals and restaurants in the county that are open for take out.  Might be helpful for members.    https://athensohio.com/blog-posts/available-food-resources-for-covid-19-response/
