Concert/Silent Auction Fundraiser April 8
Get ready! Singer/Songwriter Tom Neilson will be performing at UUCLR on Saturday, April 8, 2017. He bills his offerings as 'Music for Social Change' and will cover many topics, such as peace and ecology, which are near and dear to UU hearts and minds.
There will be a Silent Auction along with the concert too! We need people to donate services, NEW items, artwork and food goodies to auction off. Contact Kater Reynolds at (email@example.com) or Sue McDonald (firstname.lastname@example.org) or leave a message with the office if you have something to provide. Maybe you knit and can make a baby blanket, bake some bread or promise to bake cookies, rake leaves or coach public speaking. This is a great opportunity for you to give of your talents.
The Silent Auction and concessions will open at 6:00 pm. The concert will begin at 7:00 pm. Tom Neilson will sell his CDs at intermission and you can place final bids then too. The auction ends when the second half of the concert begins. This will be a fun, funny and inspiring concert as well as a good time to help the church! Yes, help will be needed, but we'll ask for that closer to the event. For now we want you to be thinking of nice auction items that you can donate. And be sure to put the date on your calendar.
Light snacks, wine and beer will be available for a donation.
Child care will be available - please let Sue know at 442-6623.
Roy Speckhardt Event April 29 and 30
According to a churchwide survey awhile ago, 70% of our UUCLR congregation identified as Humanists. How well do we understand who Humanists are? Roy Speckhardt, Executive Director of the American Humanist Association, and his wife, Maggie Ardiente, are coming on Saturday, April 29 from 2:00 to 4:00, and will be in the pulpit on Sunday, April 30, to inspire and enlighten us. His topic on Sunday will be "Creating Change through Humanism."
Roy has appeared on CNN Headline News, Fox News, numerous national radio shows, and has spoken to dozens of local humanist groups across the country. Please join us for two exciting and informative weekend events.
