Join our Welcoming Team - We are looking for another Greeter to serve on the 4th Sunday of each month during the 2017-2018 church year. This is a simple but important job to serve as a welcoming face and provide basic information to new folks. Detailed instructions are provided and you will always be joined by one other Greeter. Contact: Linda Porter, membership@uucl.org. Many thanks to Joan Kindy for her years of service as a Greeter.

Calling All Crafty Folks! Our 2017 UUCL Craft Fair will be held on Sunday, November 19, before and after church. If you would like to sell your work, please contact Marie Conger at mccconger@gmail.com to reserve your space. We expect more vendors this year, so contact her soon. We welcome UUs and Friends, so please pass this info on to your crafty buddies!

The collection of materials for the Women in Prison Project is ongoing. They can use yarn, fabric, sewing and quilting supplies, or funds for repairing sewing machines. The items they make are distributed to 20 area agencies. If you are still thinking about clearing out your unused stash, items can be dropped off in the designated tub in the Foyer coat closet. Thank you to all who have so generously donated in the past. Contact: Lora Lee Clark, loralclark@aol.com.
