We invite anyone with the slightest twinge of wander lust to bring a small contribution for the snack table and settle in for an evening of hassle-free traveling from our chairs. Contact person: Lorain Harouff.

Circle Dinners

Saturday, March 30 with a firm deadline to sign up of March 18. UUFW Circle dinners offer a chance to share a pleasant dinner and interesting conversation in each others’ homes. The host(s) sets the time, provides the main dish and contacts the assigned guests to arrange what they will bring for the meal. Sign up to be either a host or dinner guest on the form at the back of the sanctuary. For more information, contact Sylvia Woodworth.

Brown Baggers

Wednesday, March 20, 11:30 a.m. at the home of Bea Berry. This is a group of UUFW women that meets monthly. All ages are invited to come whenever personal schedules allow. If you come, bring your own lunch and the hostess will provide dessert & drinks. There is no designated topic of discussion, but usually many ideas or concerns are raised. You do not need to attend regularly in order to join—come when you can or when you feel like it. We do ask attendees to let the hostess know so that she can prepare enough dessert & drinks for all. Contact person: Lee Patterson.
