UUFP at Earth Day in Reading

Thank you Judy, Kim, Sue, Allan, Paula, Dave and Miranda for helping represent UUFP at Berks Earth Day, Saturday, April 23rd! We had a wonderful spot-right next to Fair Districts PA and across from Penn Environment! Our team came prepared to inform the public about Go100PA, the PA 100% renewable energy bill, sponsored by State Senator Katie Muth, Senator Amanda Cappelletti and State Rep Chris Rabb; and FixHarrisburg, an effort by Fair Districts PA to reform the rules in State Legislatures so that bills with broad public and bipartisan
support are brought up for a vote and not left to languish in committee. We had petitions to be signed, both paper and electronic, but since we were between FDPA and Penn Environment who also had their petitions, we quite often ended up promoting our fellowship, educating people about UUism and sending them to the First UU Church of Berks County in Reading!

Fair Districts PA had a very informative display manned by the Chair of FDPA Carol Kuniholm! How cool is that?! We had some interesting discussions and also had time to visit many of the other displays and booths throughout the park.

I want to give a great big shout-out to Kim K for designing our new banner and for being
persistent in acquiring full access to a good quality online software program which will most
certainly be beneficial to UUFP in the future. Bravo! It was a busy, productive and inspiring day. Thanks to everyone who helped out!
