The monthly collection plate donation has become a strong program at First Parish. Over the past few years congregants have generously put more money in the plate following a presentation by a representative of a local charity. Follow up thank you notes attest to the warmth of our church members during the coffee hour.
Now is the time to start thinking about putting together a new list of recipients for September through June. We hope that everyone will feel welcome to suggest places that they feel are appropriate and consistent with our UU values of service, inclusiveness and commitment to our community.
Please feel free to email me. I will be away for parts of August but will be happy to field questions and take suggestions.
