Brown Baggers

Wednesday, August 21, 11:30 a.m. Location TBD.  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.


Circle Dinners

Saturday, August 24. The Firm deadline to sign up is Monday, August 12. UUFW Circle Dinners offer a chance to share a pleasant dinner and interesting conversation in each others’ homes. This is an enjoyable way for us to get to know each other better and to perhaps meet some new people in a relaxed atmosphere. The host(s) sets the time, provides the main dish, and contacts the others to arrange what they will bring for the meal. We try to arrange both family and adults only dinners. These dinners rely on volunteers to host. To sign-up, please fill out a form at the back of the sanctuary or contact Sylvia Woodworth. We need hosts for about four dinners.

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.
