I am looking for parents to start some family initiatives. Please let me know if you are willing to be one of several coordinators:
Mystery Buddy: Mystery Buddy is a popular Unitarian Universalist program that encourages communication between the generations! Many times it has been the foundation of wonderful friendships. It’s a great way for children and adults of our community to learn more about one another in a wonderfully fun way! Commitment: about 6 weeks on Sunday mornings at either/both services, dates flexible, during the winter. This job can be shared with another family or two! Email Robin Slaw.
