For the 2019-2020 Church Year .
Your Nominating Committee (NC) is reaching out to you to discern who among us is willing and able to become a nominee for service on the Board of Trustees and the Nominating Committee for the coming church year. We are seeking 3 candidates who can agree to serve 3 year terms for both of these groups. It will be an exciting time to deepen your involvement in leadership with 1st Unitarian. We will be welcoming an Interim Minister in the fall of 2019, and soon thereafter begin the process of recruiting and calling a new settled Minister. Consider whether you or someone with whom you have worked here at 1st Unitarian might be ready for these responsibilities. Board work involves people with many skills, but as the church Treasurer is now a Board Member, we must identify someone with interest and/or ability in financial affairs to succeed our current Treasurer when his term ends in May, 2020.
Please contact any of the current NC members [Gretchen Aiyangar, Corey Layman, Alice Lieb, Rob Masterson, Bob Mitchell, Raeann Olander Murray, Shelley Ross, Becky Studer, Sandy Woolley] with your suggestions or questions.
The UU Quilters will be raffling a new quilt to help the 2019 auction raise funds. While it isn't quite ready yet, here's a small sample of the final quilt, which will fit a queen-sized bed. More to come soon!
So excited Maureen Porter is having a meaningful and helpful Pilgrimage with our Khasi Hills Partners in India. Thank you to the Social Justice Endowment for helping make this possible. She is pictured with the headmaster of our school and the gift scarf she was given.

Feel free to bake or cook, or pick something up at the store. The Community Table is about sharing and love. If you want to bake your heart out, that's great, but so are pretzels and Oreos! Some suggestions: fruit, nuts, veggie tray with or without dip, hummus, sliced meats and cheeses, salsa, pretzels, chips, fresh popcorn, cookies, brownies, coffee cake or fruit breads. Please bring enough for 25 people. FINGER FOOD IS BEST, since we have very limited resources for cutting and preparing.
