Yesterday, UUFR had a wonderful celebration of our Freedom to Read, in celebration of Banned Books Week. This year, we had a big turnout and read Kurt Vonnegut, Douglas Adams, Albert Camus, Vladimir Nabokov, Thomas Jefferson, Martha Stout, and many more.
We advertised our Read-In in the “Rolla Daily News,” online, and on KMNR. We also had the Fellowship’s letter to the editor published in the “Rolla Daily News.” Thank you to everyone who participated!
Last night, Sept. 19th, UUFR had are biggest draw to a movie night ever. We watched “F–k: A Documentary,” which is a very good film about profanity, the f-word, and freedom of speech. We also had a feast! Thank you to everyone who came. The movie is now available from the UUFR Library for checkout.
Congratulations to Molly Remer, whose new book is out. Also, thanks to Connie for our copy.
Well done, Molly!
Thank you to everyone who came to the business meeting today. It was a very productive meeting, and we had a good time.
Thank you also to Jennifer, who made cinnamon scones and to everyone who brought wine.
Did some watering and weed whacking at the UUFR Garden Plots at the Rolla Community Garden and discovered our sunflowers, although no longer being visited by bees, are feeding many birds.
Unfortunately, they knew I was watching and flew off whenever I tried to get a picture. Here is what I could get. I don’t know birds, but some were yellow, some blue, and one was a hummingbird. — Travis
Water Communion and Pot Luck was held today. We had a great time. Good to see so many old and new faces. Thanks to everyone who brought goodies. We are really looking forward to our Jubilee Year!
The RACW Book Club met today to finish discussion of Jimmy Carter’s “A Call to Action.” We also had a lovely Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Pie.
