Announcements

Seabeck Retreat September 20-22

Seabeck is an unhurried time to spend time together with family and friends, some of whom you may not yet know well. There is ample time to play games, share stories and have nature strolls on the grounds and beyond. The theme for 2019 is “What is in your Time Capsule?” For more information, see the brochure or check out Seabeck.

The Finance Committee is calling for proposals for Capital Needs funding.

“Capital Needs” are funds for major maintenance, furniture or equipment purchases, and general repairs that were not otherwise anticipated in the annual budgeting process. The Capital Needs process is managed by the Finance Committee.

If you have thoughts on areas or items that need sprucing up, repair or replacement, please submit a proposal by Friday, June 28, 2019 that includes the following information:

Name of project/purchase
Estimated cost, detailed by line item components
Explanation of urgency of funding now rather than later
Description of positive impact
Name of person who will be responsible for managing the project/purchase if it is approved by the board

The EUUC Board needs a few good note takers

Are you interested in what goes on when your 7 elected Board members meet each month?  You can be part of the action by taking raw notes for later editing by the Congregational Administrator and Board President at the Board’s monthly meetings.  We have a note taker for June 25, but would like to find someone for July 16 in The Friarplace from 7 to 9 p.m.  Contact EUUC office if you are interested.

The Fa-La Sisterhood singers become The Treblemakers – no audition required

The Treblemakers is a non-audition treble ensemble (sopranos and altos) for adult singers with a basic ability to read music.  Music styles include pop, contemporary, and traditional.  The Treblemakers will sing approximately six times a year.  Rehearsals take place every first, third, and occasional fifth Thursday of each month, year round, from 7 to 9 p.m. in RE-5.  For more information about this group, please contact April Cook.

Caring and Sharing:Skin Care for Women of Color

A heartfelt thank you from the Advocates for Women and Racial Justice committees for your participation in the “Caring and Sharing: Skin Care for Women of Color” fundraiser. Through your generous giving we collected over $540.00! Your donation will offer comfort to the women of color living in transitional housing at both YWCA Pathways for Women and Domestic Violence Services of Snohomish County. Thank you once again for your generosity in making this fundraiser a big success.

Sunday Offering for June

The Sunday Offering for June will help Agros International purchase agricultural land for Central American communities. The main focus of Agros is on those living in extreme poverty in rural areas in Central America and the mission is to see rural poor families own agricultural land and attain economic self-sufficiency. Land is the foundation of their approach which is holistic, designed to address the complexities of poverty including land, market-led agriculture, health, education and financial empowerment. Their model has helped more than 10,000 people move sustainably out of poverty during the past thirty years.

A measles case has been reported in Snohomish County.
