September Fellowship Supper

Wednesday Sept 20th at 6pm

Mark your calendars for the September Fellowship Supper, in the Fellowship Hall. This month’s supper will be hosted by the Green Sanctuary Committee. Vegetarian main dishes will be provided, please bring a side or dessert to share, if you can. To highlight our commitment to being a Green Sanctuary Congregation, please try to use ingredients that are locally sourced, organic, and/or fair trade. We’ll honor those with summer and September birthdays with a cake and a song. For folks of all ages!!

Fellowship Suppers are held the 3rd Wednesday of each month, at 6pm.  Each month, a different committee or group sponsors the supper, providing the main course, and others attending are asked to bring a side dish or dessert. This is a great chance to get to know and enjoy the company of fellow UUs!  All are welcome.  For more information, or to sign your group up to sponsor a meal, please contact Helen at helendempsey49@gmail.com or Milena at danneker@verizon.net.
