Annual Thanksgiving Dinner

Thursday, November 27 - Dinner will be served at 12:30 pm

We will be having our annual Thanksgiving dinner again this year. It is always a wonderful event, filled with great food, wonderful conversation and holiday time spent with friends and UUCLR family members.

As in previous years, donations will be taken to cover the cost of the meat and rolls. All
participants will be asked to bring a large side dish or dessert to share with everyone. Vegetarians should plan on bringing an appropriate entrée for themselves and other
vegetarians to share in lieu of a donation for meat.

Sign-up sheets will be in Thomson Hall starting the first weekend of November so people can sign up to attend and let us know what they will bring. This way we don’t end up with all desserts and no sweet potatoes, stuffing, veggies, etc. Please sign up prior to November 20 so we know how much meat to purchase.

If anyone wants to volunteer to help with advance planning, set-up and clean up, please contact the church office at uuclr@uuclr.org or 225-1503.

We hope you can join us this year for a truly fabulous feast!

Strangers and Pilgrims receives its name from an abandoned, boarded up Black church on Barrow Street just above Colonel Glenn. The name of the church describes so many of us that it stuck and became what we call our weekly Adult Education Class. Topics are philosophical, psychological, artistic, political, spiritual, and religious. And they change every Sunday. We try to enforce the rule that no one can speak a second time or more until everyone speaks a first time. Meets weekly before service on Sunday.
