Ballet Tickets Make Great Christmas Presents!

UUCJ is in possession of 2 donated sets of tickets for Romeo and Juliet. Each set contains two tickets plus a parking pass—all for $50 each. One of these tickets is now selling for $50—so this is a very good deal! The performance takes place at the Times Union Center, Friday, January 10, 8:00 p.m. This ballet comes from Ukraine, and features top Ukrainian artists. It is amazing! All proceeds from the sale go to UUCJ and would help contribute to the budget shortfall we currently have. Contact Darlene Larsen for more info:

Stocking Stuffers — UUCJ Pens

The sale of each pen supports and advertises UUCJ.

The Fund Raising Team has two types of imprinted pens for sale; both have a  stylus on the opposite end: A royal blue one that lights up our info ($3) and an attractive navy one with silver trimming ($2). Combined with stationery they make great gifts that will keep our church’s name in the limelight, literally. The pens alone are especially appropriate for future new members.

If you interested in purchasing pens see Cyd Reider, Reider, Jeanne Huebner, Arlene Anderson, Betsy Duerling, Janine Leland, Teri Mitchell, or Darlene Larsen. Penny Reid has pens for our Fernandina members. All proceeds from the pens go to UUCJ. Such a winning idea for all — we hope you will consider it!

Hooray! 3,014 pounds in Arlington Community Services Contributions!

Thanks to you for continuing your Sunday contributions and to the Arlington Community Garden for their donations to Arlington Community Services.  UUCJ has matched its previous high of 3,000 pounds achieved in 2017.  We have three more opportunities to donate food toward ACS: the next two Sundays and Christmas Eve. Remember, on Christmas Eve we will be taking groceries, but our goal will be to raise $1,000 in cash to support the ACS efforts to help with utility and rent shortfalls.

Merry Christmas from the ACS Support and Transport Group: Linda Leon who volunteers at ACS, Barbara who is my backup, Marianna Van Hyning, our previous coordinator, and Carlos Fraticelli.
