Ad Hoc Congregational Life Committee

Tally of votes at the August 27, 2016, UUFA picnic for members’ and friends’ seeds of ideas for fun, festivity, and fellowship. The number in each parenthesis is how many votes were cast for an idea.

The ad hoc Congregational Life Committee consists of Peggy Earnshaw, Helen Gunderson, Jonah Powell, and Jan Vine. They will evaluate and revamp the ballot for a final vote (probably online)
in late September. To contact the committee:
