THIS SUNDAY September 22, 2019 – Our Mabon Service. Please join us Sunday , September 22 as we observe the fall equinox or Mabon as our Celtic ancestors referred to the holiday. We will reflect upon this time of equal balance as we move away from the sun and toward the seasons of darkness. We will explore how we can maintain balance in our  lives as we prepare for the coming winter.  Led by Barb and Roberta. Coffee 10:30am, Service 11:00am. 184 Longview Heights Road, Athens, Ohio 45701

UUFA Children: While this Sunday’s Mabon Service will be intergenerational, we’re thrilled that our Maggie will be back with us to care for the little ones who might wish to spend time downstairs this Sunday. Job Available: Because Skyler is unable to spend time with the children again this semester, we’re looking to hire someone else to work with our children now and then. Stay tuned for a job description and instructions on how to apply. Ideas? Please share with the interview committee: Brian, Susan, Wenda.

UUFA Fall Work Day Saturday October 5th:  Our fall UU Fellowship work day will be Saturday October 5th from 11am until 4pm. Please show up as much as you can (even to just visit!) during that time frame. Wear work clothes, and bring tools if you wish. Lunch will be served. Activities include yard maintenance, picnic table assembly, repair of deck, and whatever you and others love to do. Hope to see you there!

CHANGE of LOCATION: The Athens CROP Hunger Walk – Sunday, October 6, 2pm-4pm, been moved to the Athens County Community Center parking lot (solar panel side).  
Donations made out to CWS/CROP will be accepted by Natalie Barman at UUFA or at a table by Peden on the Bike Path or online via the CROP Hunger Walk’s “Team UUFA” webpage that has been set up to collect donations to the CROP Hunger Walk on behalf of our fellowship.

BALLROOM WALTZ CLASS: Thursday, October 17th, 6 p.m. at the fellowship there will be a ballroom waltz class offered by Lois Gladchild. Though individuals will need to choose to either learn to lead or to follow, there will be no sex or gender assignments to those rolls.  You do not need to bring a partner.  (We will work around the turnout that we have.) This is intended to be a light-hearted class with the goal of learning to joyfully move to music while communicating with your dance partner.  It would be helpful to know about how many folks will be there, so if you’d RSVP to Lois via email at GLADCHILDL@gmail.com, it would be good, but not required.  If you have questions, please contact Lois via email or telephone or speak with her at fellowship meetings.
