President’s Message — February 2024

How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world. ~ Anne Frank

While I can’t speak for improvements to the world, I can speak to individuals and their actions that helped to improve our UUFP community. First, a big thank you goes out to Miranda Van Horn and the membership committee for holding a UU101 class in January. This class was offered to help new friends and long-term members increase their understanding of Unitarian Universalism. For those individuals who are interested in becoming members of our fellowship, it is the first step. UU102 will be held in the next few weeks.

Another thank you goes out to Valery Murdock for volunteering to chair the Children and Youth Religious Education committee. Her background in teaching will serve her well in this role. An outline of the roles and responsibilities of this committee has been posted on the bulletin board just outside the sanctuary doors — think PTO. If you are interested in participating in this very important committee, please let Valery know. Last month I wrote that the children are our future and what better way to impact the world than to help the children along their own spiritual journey.

And speaking of journeys, the UUFP has certainly been on an exciting one over the past few years. Sunday Service attendance is up, which includes new visitors and more children. To ensure that the fellowship continues to meet the needs of its members and friends, the Board of Directors needs input and feedback to ensure that we are making the right decisions and investments to best serve our evolving community. To that end, sometime during the latter part of February, you will be asked to complete a survey. The survey will be anonymous, so the Board asks that you be as candid as possible with your feedback. This is a great opportunity for everyone to help to improve our community.

In closing, I’d like to mention one more item. If you are interested in improving your culinary skills, there will be another “Cooking with Clifford” offered on February 24. The focus of this program will be seafood chowders. The cost will be $20 to attend. Please let Clifford Schulman or I know if you are interested in attending. Or, you may register via email to:

With Gratitude, Linda
