August Milestones ~ This Month in UUS:E History:

August 1974: Just five years after our founding, the UUS:E directory lists 255 members and other involved adults! We report 99 children age 14 or under to the Unitarian Universalist Association’s Department of Extension, with an actual church school enrollment of 65.

August 1977: James Juros, the architect for the new UUS:E building on West Vernon Street, begins meeting with every group and committee at the church. The excitement is palpable!

Looking forward to other 50th Anniversary commemorations, including:

  • “Revisiting the Empowerment Controversy,” discussion of Rev. Morrison-Reed’s book looking at events in the Unitarian Universalist Association 50 years ago. September 19 at 3 and 7 PM. See article elsewhere in this issue.
  • Looking Back, Looking Forward. A legacy service on November 3.
  • Affirmation Reunion. Tentative – Thanksgiving weekend.
  • Watch for mug and tee-shirt sales in the lobby. Ongoing.
  • Multi-media timeline created by Carol Marion (to the right of the stage) and photos of each of our congregational homes (hallway near office entrance.) Ongoing..
