From Les Berg- This year has flown by --soon the millennium—or at least Y2K.

Please remember the Fellowship with your holiday gift giving. All contributions are tax deductible (if you itemize). We must yet pay our fair share to the UUA and to PSWD for the 1999-2000 fiscal year so we need your help. Our direct expenses for each member are about $60 per year.

When the church moves their colorful bus, we will get quotes for a sign to go on the west wall of Mathews Cottage. That should happen in December.

A joyous holiday season and a happy new millennium to all!
