UUFA Announcements for January 30, 2018

Good Morning UUFA Members and Friends,

Many thanks to Wenda Sheard for this past Sunday’s service on “Climate Change”.  It was an informative and motivational presentation enjoyed by all .  If you liked the Climate Reality presentation on Sunday morning, you might want to mark your calendar for Wednesday, March 28th when climate expert Dr. Michael Mann, a Distinguished Professor of Atmospheric Science at Penn State University and the director of the Penn State Earth System Science Center, will speak at Ohio University’s Memorial Auditorium in the evening. Mann was one of the authors of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report awarded the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize, and helped Al Gore train all the Climate Reality Leadership Corps volunteers last October when Wenda Sheard and others in Athens attended the training.

Brigit, who is most closely associated with, and celebrated at, Imbolc.
