Top-of-the-Square Pancakes

 On Saturday, May 17, 2014, from 8:00 AM to 10:30 AM, we will once again offer the best pancake breakfast ever served on planet earth; no other church in Peterborough can even think of competing with us, and without us, Children and the Arts would be a dismal, incomplete, even shabby event indeed.  But, we need hands (fourteen to twenty is best) for the breakfast to run in a way that is efficient, stress-free, and fun.  And as always, contributions of pure maple syrup help a lot.

 

The pancake breakfasts we serve make money for the church, and publicize our positive role in the community.

 

Please consider volunteering your two hands for all or some of the time.  Please consider supporting the event with a donation of syrup.  Please let the property committee know if you can help out.  We can accept the syrup anytime; early helpers report at 7:00 AM.  Clean up folks come later. We are almost always all done by 11:30 AM.   Thanks.

Welcoming

 

Enjoy the gifts of invitation and listening.  Notice when you make an assumption and intentionally set that assumption aside, choosing instead to invite and listen.

 

 

Go on a UU Pilgrimage

We may not have saints and shrines, but Unitarian Universalists do visit the scenes of our tradition's great stories.

Trailer anyone?

Does anyone from the church have a small trailer we could borrow this weekend? We have a small tree to pick up from a nursery just south of Nashua that won't fit in our small car. We do have a hitch on the back. If so and you are willing please call Wayne or Sarah at 784-5333, today or tomorrow.

Thanks, Sarah Sherburne and Wayne Murray

 

Funeral Consumers Alliance-VT Annual Meeting, Saturday, May 24th, Norwich, Vermont

Alternatives to burial in a typical cemetery are of increasing interest to many.  The Funeral Consumers Alliance of Vermont, (FCA-VT) has a long history of educating Vermonters about our rights and alternative options when memorializing our dead.  This year our Annual Meeting will be held on Saturday, May 24th at the  Capital City Grange on Route 12 just south of Montpelier starting at 9:30 PM.  We are pleased to be able to share the movie, Dying Green, on the topic of green burials.  The movie will be shown from about 9:45 to 10:15 AM with time for discussion afterwards.  A brief business meeting will follow.  All our meetings are free and open to the public.  Join us for beverages and light refreshment before the meeting.  For more info, contact Vice President, Mary Alice Bisbee, at 223-8140 (FCA-VT hotline) or President, Alexandra Thayer at 454-1131 or athayer@gmavt.net.  Or go to our website and click on the Annual Meeting link http://vermontfca.org/.
