As announced before service on Sunday, the Purdue football game on Saturday, September 23 is likely to be the biggest crowd of the season. Purdue's team is playing well, it is Homecoming. Their opponent, Michigan, is ranked in the top 10 in the nation (and they bring a LOT of fans to away games). As of now, we have no one to do football parking this Saturday. Ideally we would have 3-5 people.
The game starts at 4 pmon Saturday. We need to have someone at the church about 1 pm to put out the parking cones - ideally one person would be there for that first hour in case the crowd arrives early. 2-3 people should be present from 2-4 pm. Parking ends at kickoff. Barny can provide detailed instructions.
Any volunteers can direct half of the proceeds to the budget of any church committee/group that they want. We made $300 last week for the first game - potentially we could park 55-60 cars and make up to $600 this Saturday.
If you have moved, changed email addresses or phone numbers please email John Carlson at email@example.com. so he can update it in the church's database software. He is also developing a process to reduce the number of statuses to make it easier to track information.
Gigantic thanks to John for taking on this time consuming and arduous task!

On November 19 the members of Blue Moon Rising will share with the public a program of fun and uplifting music at 7:00 p.m. The community choir’s Autumn Concert will take place in the sanctuary and everyone is invited to stay afterwards for light refreshments in Fellowship Hall. Though Blue Moon Rising is an independent organization (which practices at UU), many of the group’s 58 singers are members of the UU church.
The concert is a culmination of the community choir’s 15-week session which began in August. The music will include a variety of styles (folk, gospel, pop) and during the evening the audience will be invited to join in the singing on a few songs.
A donation will be accepted at the door to help with the choir’s scholarship fund. A suggested amount is $10 but please contribute whatever amount fits your budget. Children are free.
We are sorry to report that due to delays in the visa application process, the annual visit to UU Church by the Tibetan Monks of the Drepung Gomang Monastery has been cancelled. Several events that were posted to this blog and social media have been deleted.
The UU Plant Sale take place on April 30 and we could use your help with publicity. You can download and print copies of the flyer and give them to friends or put them up around town. Please help us get the word out about one of our biggest fundraisers of the year!
