Holiday Message from Sofia Betancourt, UUA President – please give a listen to this beautiful and soulful holiday message from the UUA President.
New Tech Equipment and Cart update – Many thanks to the special Tech Committee this year we have new tech equipment and a dedicated cart created by Richard Thieret. If you are interested in learning more about how to operate the equipment should you find yourself at the pulpit someday ….please see a member of the committee and refer to the instructions posted on the cart. One easy rule to know is that it’s best to bring your presentation on a flash drive and you can plug it directly into the new “docking station”. Thank you one and all for making this a reality !!! Thanks to committee members – Roberta Roberson, Andy Ray, Pat Gordon & Barb Harrison.
Special Fund to Assist Evan, Susan, Lauren and William Young – The Young Family has suffered a terrible accident. Their youngest, William is injured and in need of special support once he comes home from hospital. There is a Go Fund Me account set up for assistance. If you would like to contribute, we can take a special collection at UUFA – please put your donation in a sealed envelope and Barb Harrison will see that it gets to the Youngs. If you prefer a non-tech method just leave it with Barb or send along to the fellowship and we will see that it gets to them. The total need is $80,000. Here is the link to the Go Fund Me account:
