Come Volunteer at The Food Project!
Saturday, September 14 - 9:15am-12:30pm
There are volunteer slots available for members of the congregation - adults and youth - at The Food Project's Lynn MA farm on the morning of Saturday, September 14. The Green Sanctuary Ministry Team has been sponsoring volunteer efforts at The Food Project every spring and fall for a number of years. It's an event that is greatly enjoyed by all!

The Lynn Farm is located at the Ingalls School, 1 Collins Street Terrace, Lynn.
The Food Project's mission is to grow a thoughtful and productive community of youth and adults from diverse backgrounds who work together to build a sustainable food system. See http://thefoodproject.org/ .

Reminders
Children's RE Program Summer Break
The children's RE program is on Summer Break. This means that we have no formal program until after Labor Day, although keep an eye out for a couple of special Sundays when we'll have a children's program about ethical eating. Although there are no volunteer teachers and staff leading classes during the summer, the nursery will be open for use with some toys, books and activities. Parents/guardians are responsible for watching their children. If you have any questions, contact Mark LaPointe , DCLL.
H A W C - When you travel this summer . . .
Don't forget to save hotel/travel-sized toiletries for HAWC. For many years, the UUW has been preparing gift bags every Christmas to donate to " H ealing A buse W orking for C hange" which was founded over 35 years ago. This organization serves 23 cities and towns from Saugus to Cape Ann with local offices in Lynn and Salem. HAWC serves individuals affected by domestic abuse. Its mission is to "support the healing process of abuse and to change social norms and behaviors that perpetrate violence and oppression". They are always very grateful for our church's generosity.
Courtyard/Sanctuary Window Repairs
Our window repairs continue in the sanctuary and the sun-baked courtyard. At various points in the process you may see areas boarded up, and we want to remind everyone that no one should enter the courtyard. It is a construction site and some of our windows are being stored under the tarps. Thank you for your patience!
