Women's Conversation Circle – October 1 from 6-8pm

posted Sep 25, 2018, 10:16 AM by UUCC Office

UUCC in the Farmhouse, in our cozy Pickett Rm.

The first Monday of the month, this month October 1st. The topic is serving items, things that we serve food and drink in. You are welcome to bring as a show n tell a cherished platter, bowl, dish glass, etc. We thought it would also be fun to bring items we no longer want as a swap so someone else can love it for a time. We pass the talking stick for a check in and then around again on the topic. No one is ever required to talk, we can chose to pass. If you are rushed feel free to bring your bag supper and all are invited to bring a snack to share afterwards, no need to feel obligated. Please join us.

Inspired by her recent visit to the Adams River in British Columbia to witness the amazing sight of the sockeye salmon returning to spawn after their years in the ocean, Jenny will present an illustrated talk on migration - touching not only on fish, but also butterflies, animals, and people - all affected to some degree by climate change.

Theater Sounds Presents - October 20 at 7:30pm

posted Sep 25, 2018, 9:17 AM by UUCC Office

Eleemosynary by Lee Blessing

The return of a TheaterSounds favorite playwright, and featuring Marnie Andrews, the play explores “the delicate relationship of three singular women: grandmother Dorothea, who asserts her independence through strong-willed eccentricity; her brilliant daughter, Artemis, who fled the stifling domination of her mother; and Artie's daughter, Echo, a child of exceptional intellect and sensitivity.”

Sunday Matinee Mic Open

posted Sep 11, 2018, 10:20 AM by UUCC Office

Sunday Matinee Mic is an open mic opportunity held at the UU every second and fourth Sunday. Budding or accomplished musicians may play two songs or 10 minutes of material. Our first one was a fun and relaxed event that reminded us all how much talent there is in our own congregation. And it brought community musicians unfamiliar with the UU to our location.

There is no entry fee, a free-will offering is accepted.

If you have a song in your heart and would like to participate, the sign-ups are at 2:00 and the performances are from 2:30-5:00. Please spread the word of this event to your friends and relatives.

Supporting musicians is also important. Audience members are appreciated. So, join us and let music work its magic on you.
