***************COMMUNICATION CORNER**************                           

Did you know we now have a “Sunday School” that is meeting in Mathews Cottage on Sunday mornings before the adult meeting???  Thanks to Bill Nunan, we now have a program for children.

About our fellowship:  As you know, our membership is high in quality, but limited in quantity.  Please come to Sunday meetings whenever you can.  More is better:  more energy, more ideas, more hugs, more discussion.  Your participation is valued.  Hope to see more of you!

HELP WANTED.  Marian Kerr has a newly renovated IBM Selectric and would like to know how to use it.  Can you help???   She will pay for your time. 



    The Fellowship had a good year.  We have two new couples as members, Marilyn and Ted Doty and Dave and Gloria Miller.  They are all great additions to the Fellowship.

    We paid our "fair share" to both the PSWD and the UUA.  We have a new 4'x4' sign on the west side of the cottage through the efforts of Dave Miller, Miles Thompson and Rich Johnson.

    We even have some money in the bank - but don't forget to make a donation by Dec. 31st and receive a tax deduction.

    January 2001 will be notable for two headliner Sunday programs!

Debra Bowen speaks to us on Jan. 14 and Rev. Bob Klein preaches and leads us in a Vision Workshop on Jan. 28.  Be sure to attend both of these events!
