Jazz for the Sanctuary: Thanks to the Team!

We want to express our sincere thanks to everyone who made our mission funding kickoff event successful: Thank you to Hope Clayton, whose Jazz Service Auction event inspired the idea and who arrived at the concert using crutches to sing. Thanks to the co-sponsors of the show, which included Tom, Janine, Meg, and Barbara. We raised $1200 to defray the cost to UUCJ and to move the event forward.

Thanks to Barbara who coordinated food.  Thanks to Jeanne, Janine, Penny, and Barbara, who provided the food and drinks.  Thanks to Tammy Smith, Terri Mitchell, and Luis Parra, who help put out food and clean up. Thanks to Rob McKennon from Tech Team for providing soundboard services. Thanks for Jeff Funderburk, who help with setup of Chapel after UUCJ services.

Thanks for Sara May and Marsha Collins for staff Mission Funding Reception Desk. Thanks to Virginia Deroy for providing packet of materials and the control list for checking in members and friends. Thanks to Christina Ramey for posting notices and creating our logo. Thanks for Rev. Roberta for excellent sermon using the baseball metaphor for our support of UUCJ.

And a huge thanks to Carlos Fraticelli, for coordinating a fantastic evening!

Caring Candles

David Keel introduced two L’Arche residents, Dino and Brenda, whose artwork is on display in the Social Hall and for sale. Stop by and look at their beautiful work.

Robert and Constance Miller were on vacation when Robert became ill.  Robert is now under hospice care at the medical center of Fleet Landing.  Cards of support would be very much appreciated, but no visits at this time.
