For Your Information

UUCD New Comers Orientation – There will be another 3 part orientation program for new comers beginning in April. The three Sundays are April 9, 23 and May 7. We will gather after coffee from around 11:30 to 1:00 to discuss Unitarianism and Universalism, to get acquainted, and to explore what we are each seeking and what being a part of our UUCD community means to us individually. Contact Greg for more information, if you have questions, and to sign up.

Stewardship Canvass – On March 19th, we will kick off the canvass season. Our annual meeting is June 4th, and the Board of Trustees will have to have a recommended budget for next year to present at that meeting. In order to make the best possible plan for next year, we need your pledge. Without your commitment, it is difficult to plan ahead and to provide all the programs you value. So please consider your pledge carefully. A member of the Stewardship Committee will be in touch to help you with more information, to answer your questions, and to accept your pledge. Thank you for your support.

Mindfulness Practice Group – This group meets on the first Wednesday of the month. We are led by Abby Miller who has practiced mindfulness in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh for many years. The group meets from 7.00pm to 8.30pm at CBS. Guided Meditation, Walking Mediation and Silent Meditation are included. If you could benefit from some tools to reduce stress, join us as we follow out breath to focus on the present moment.

Corruption of Our Democracy – The monthly study/discussion group, Corruption of Our Democracy, will be meeting February 19th at 11:30. All are welcome.

UUCD Diners Club! – We’re back yet again. Last month 12 of us met at Franco’s for a scrumptious gastronomic experience and a delightful evening out. This month we’re meeting at the Brick Works restaurant in Smyrna on Thursday, February 16 th at 6:30PM. Be sure and let me know if you intend to attend so I can include you in our reservation. Everyone invited. See you then. Yuuuuum! – Greg

Canvas Kickoff Potluck Dinner – Save the date for the canvas kickoff potluck dinner! March 18th at the Hesseltine farmhouse at 6pm. More details to follow.

Adopt-A-Highway – There will be an Adopt-A-Highway event on the 11th of March, 9-12. Please let Jayce know if you can make it!

Mom’s Night Out – We had a great #UUmomsnightout on the 20th of January! Moms mark your calendars for the 17th of March, and we’ll do it again! (Is that St. Patrick’s Day?!?! Yes!)
