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!

CROP Walk Sunday, October 6, 2pm-4pm: The Athens CROP Hunger Walk has 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.

IMMIGRATION OPPORTUNITY: Athens Area Quaker and UCM Social Justice Award Winner Trisha Lachman asks if any of us would be willing to serve as “a representative to an immigration advocacy network of the SE Ohio region? That person would be contacted about occasional meetings and events concerning immigration issues, and could bring back to your organization news about assistance to immigrants.”  If interested, contact Trisha at

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, 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.
