SHOUT OUTS! and Reminders
This week, Amy Cummings began as our new RE Assistant. She is part-time and will work during the week to handle RE paperwork, administration tasks, and more.
Huge thank you to Christine Davidson, who is taking a step back from doing RE admin, so that she can focus on writing curriculum, family time, and being a leader within the program – as an RE teacher and Navigators scout troop leader.
Mel Herzog (they/them) will still be doing the Sunday RE Assistant piece (RE table, bringing in the light, snack, checking on teachers and the hired sitter, putting out and collecting attendance materials, etc.), which frees up Amy to be one of our OWL teachers, and keeps a familiar face in that role.
Make sure you say “welcome” to Amy, thank you to Christine and Mel. Add Amber Scott, our new Religious Exploration Coordinator, to the group and you have a dream team for all things RE.
The Kitchen Team!
We have been meeting monthly, sometimes twice a month to take inventory, remove outdated food items, and broken and useless items from the kitchen area. Then then the scrubbing began and continues!
The Team is currently working on signage and instructions on use and cleaning of kitchen and adjacent areas that will meet and exceed Health Department standards.
Thank you for helping us keep the kitchen clean!

READY, SET, COUNT DOWN!
THIS Sunday: MIDDLE HOUR begins!
THIS Sunday: RE classes begin
THIS Sunday: Peace Pals choir begins
Come experience Middle Hour! Stay late, come early. Middle Hour is 10:10–10:45. Note: the early service will start on time and be one hour. Then we have 15 minutes for parking lot changeover between end of Middle Hour and second service to ease congestion. Carpooling and eco-friendly modes of transportation are always good.
Teachers and RE Volunteers needed!
Answer the call to teach: help our children and youth explore Unitarian Universalist values! You don’t need to be an expert, you just need to be willing to learn alongside our young folks two Sundays a month! For more info, contact Amber.
Care Giver Support Group – Organizing meeting 9/24
(additional organizing meeting during Middle Hour on Sept. 15th)
Because several of our community have found themselves in the unfamiliar role as caregiver, we are forming a new support group for caregivers (spouses, parents, grandparent, special needs children, friends, etc.). The first get together will be at the Rusty Bucket on North High on September 24th at 6pm. We will each pay for our own meal. We will have the private room which holds about 20 people (sign-up required). This gathering will be organizational to decide what type of group or groups will be most beneficial, a regular meeting date and time, and format.
For more information and to add your name to the list, please contact Sylvia via email, phone 978-317-0013, or during coffee hour on Sunday.
