November 2 - THE CHICANO POPULATION AND POLITICS.  Regina Ramirez will speak to us regarding how the growing Chicano population fits in with Southern California politics.  (United Latin American Citizens Activities)  Ted Doty will moderate.


November 9 - A CREDO FOR LIVING.  This will be Session 10 of the Building Your Own Theology series.  If you have a chance, spend a little time thinking about your own credo.  What is at the core of your beliefs that influences your behavior, that guides you, that inspires you into being the person you are every day in your actions, your thoughts, your hope for the future????  Come and participate in this program led by Penny Hendricks.  Penny will moderate.


November 16 - WHAT IS A UUSC?  Our guest speaker Melosa Eranda will talk about the UUSC, the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee.  This really fine organization is doing really good things in many parts of the world and here at home as well.  Educating people in ways to improve the quality of their own lives, how to support themselves; how to better grow their own food; how to maintain better practices for better health.  Beth Perkins will moderate.

Many thanks to Marilyn Doty for all of her effort in setting up this SBUF library!!! She made it happen.
