Now Accepting Donations through October 1st!

OCTOBER 13th POTLUCK LUNCHEON KICK-OFF!

Our annual Community Auction is scheduled with a potluck luncheon kick off October 13th!

Fried Chicken will be provided, please bring a COLD dish to share.

We hope you will join in the fun and participate in this Auction this fall.

The Community Auction is about making connections with other UU’s. Any social event, dinner party, cookie baking day, hot tub party or if entertaining is not your thing, what can you share? Do you have something to teach? How about leading a hike or a canoe trip or giving a ride to the airport?

Come and join in the fun!

The Community Auction is also our church’s biggest fundraiser of the year. It has a twofold purpose: to foster interpersonal connections between members and friends of our church, and to bring in much-needed revenue to help fund our valuable in-house programs as well as make funds available for community action. All proceeds go into the UUCS General Fund.

Members can contribute to the auction in two ways. One is to contribute some type of donation (for example, a dinner for six, canoe trip, hiking adventure, computer assistance, a craft-making class).  The other way is to sign up for and agree to pay for one or more of these offerings (a dinner or a class might be priced at $30 per person).

Donors receive a list of who has signed up for their event and signees receive an itemized list of everything they have signed up for along with the total amount owed to UUCS.

Donations accepted now through October 1st, 2019!
