A Celebration of Love - with the Human Rights Campaign

On Sunday, February 14, 2016, St. Valentine’s Day, UUCLR will celebrate Love at a special service at 11:00 a.m., and again at 3:00 p.m. when it joins with the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and the LGBT community (also at UUCLR). UUCLR invites all persons in a committed relationship joined by love to remember the past and the present for the future. The HRC joins with UUCLR in commemorating this important Valentine’s Day after the Supreme Court ruling on same sex marriage on June 26, 2015.

Barbara and Bruce Hill first met on February 11, 1967, the Saturday before Valentine’s Day, and each fell in love at first sight. It was a blind date, and the two married in 1968. This is not a Hallmark movie-of-the-week, but a reality which each has cherished over the years. In 2016, Barbara and Bruce celebrate their 49th anniversary of their first date. As a surprise to Barb, Bruce bid on the right to ask Rev. Jan to give a sermon on any topic. Barbara and Bruce chose to celebrate this important anniversary for them on this special Valentine’s Day with all other committed individuals.

February 14, 2016, is a special anniversary for two people; it is a fitting and special commemoration for everyone in our community, in the city of Little Rock, and in the State of Arkansas. It is a celebration for all who love: if you are straight, if you are part of the LGBT community, if you are human….

You are invited to celebrate love with this community.

Let Us Gather at the River.....

Members and friends will trek to Buffalo Point National Campground on Memorial Day weekend, as we have for 35+ years. This tradition was started by intrepid UU campers and canoers to have fun and fellowship in the middle of one of the stars of the Natural State's unblemished nature preserves. We will spread out over several Group Campsites and on Saturday night, we will potluck at the WPA-built Pavilion.

On Sat. and Sun, we take to canoes and paddle the USA's first national park river.We are inviting UUs from all over our region to join us there.This is a very kid-friendly activity, and young and old can enjoy both the camping and the canoeing on a peaceful stretch of the river. Hiking trails and ranger-led nature talks round out a long holiday weekend of fun during a premier weather weekend:not too hot, not too cold.

Park cabins for the tent-challenged are available until the end of February, but if they are not available, there are plenty of nearby cabins to rent. But Memorial Day weekend is very popular and early reservations at private facilities are recommended. You are on your own to decide which place is best for you.

Group camping costs are $8 per adult per night for over 17 years of age. All children under 18 are free. There is a single $4 fee per adult for the Saturday night pavilion pot luck, regardless of whether you are in a cabin or a tent.

Canoes rent for $43 per day. You may pick a two-person canoe or a single person kayak. Paddles, life jackets, and trash bags are included. Stay tuned for more detailed information about costs and reservations. And visit http://www.uuclrbuffaloriver.org for maps and other information.
