Opportunities Await on The Fundraising Team

We are a very small group this year and are in need of a few more members. Our meetings are held the first Sunday of the month, after service. Maybe your time is limited: consider becoming a “Friend of the Fund Raising Team” and help out at your convenience. The objective of our team is to: “Raise funds for the general use of UUCJ in a way that is fun and engaging for the entire congregation.” Fund Raising is fulfilling and creative… computer, cooking, crafting, and marketing are just a few of the skills needed for our team members. This is a great opportunity to use the talents you have gathered along life’s path to enrich our community and also, yourselves. If you are interested please contact Darlene Larsen: darleneandkim@att.net

Guest at Your Table Broke Records!

A big thank you to everyone who donated to our UUSC campaign. $2,360 was collected through coin boxes, checks, chocolate and card sales. A few members donated over $150 which will be matched by a NY congregation, bringing in even more help to the UUSC. You can stay informed with their projects at UUSC.org.

Many, many thanks to you all.
