Friday, November 15 at 7:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. Blake and Susan Clark will take us to Costa Rica in stories and photos from their trip. Anyone with the slightest twinge of wander lust is invited to come and bring a small contribution for the snack table, and then settle in for an evening of hassle-free traveling from our chairs. Contact person: Lorain Harouff.


UUFW Service Auction 

Sunday, November 17 after the Service. This is our primary fundraiser to support the Fellowship. Beginning in mid-October donations will be accepted via the UUFW website or on a form at the Fellowship. It’s not too soon to start thinking about what you might want to donate to this year’s auction.  Please consider donating social events, services around the home, classes, unique and handcrafted items, the fruits of your hobbies and talents, gift certificates, etc. And then be sure to come to the service auction and spend lavishly!


Finger-Food Potluck

Sunday, November 17 before the Service Auction. Bring food that can be eaten without utensils


Brown Baggers

Wednesday, November 20 16, 11:30 a.m. at the home of Pat Donovan.  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.

Tuesday, December 10, 7:00 p.m. UUFW members are welcome to observe Board meetings.

RISE is a new social justice organization based in Waynesboro. Its mission is to be a vehicle for giving voice to the voiceless, strength to the weak and support for the lost within the black community. The UUFW has a special relationship with RISE as our minister serves as the organization’s advisor, and its events are often held at the UUFW. See the RISE Events page for upcoming activities.
