Garden Help Needed June 4

Our grower, Nichole, will be celebrating her birthday morning on June 4 by working at our garden from 9am to noon. As the JU & UNF student helpers are gone for the summer she could use help from UUCJ. Please come by to wish her a happy birthday & offer a helping hand. No experience necessary. Your visit will brighten her day and help her grow food for the pantry at Arlington Community Services!

PIANISTS, SOLOISTS, SINGING GROUPS–YOUR TALENTS ARE DESIRED

Our music team at UUCJ is one fantastic group of musicians, however it is a small one and getting smaller.  Jeanne Huebner who so beautifully filled many vital roles within the music group, including pianist, has temporarily had to step down. Sharon Scholl has been doing an amazing job as our primary accompanist, however a backup pianist or more are sorely needed to put some flexibility and peace of mind into the program.     What a blessing it is…
