2) UU Common Read Discussion This Fri Mar 23, 7pm (Pizza at 6:30), Fireside
Hosted by CUUC Wisdom Reading and Discussion Group

We will discuss Daring Democracy: Igniting Power, Meaning, and Connection for the America We Want, one of the two books selected for this year’s Common Read. This optimistic book is for Americans who are asking, in the wake of Trump's victory, What do we do now? The answer: We need to organize and fight to protect and expand our democracy.

Pizza will be served at 6:30. Please RSVP to cuucevents@gmail.com.

Facilitated by Rev. Meredith and Sabrina Cleary (clearytheory@gmail.com).

3) Easter Egg Hunt and Activities Next Sun Apr 1
Join us for our annual RE Easter festivities, including...
  • Egg Hunt
  • Cookie decorating
  • Children's Worship
  • Egg-and-spoon race and other games
We need helpers to make the cutout cookies that the children will decorate. Please contact me at dlre@cucwp.org if you are able to make some ahead of time.

Would you like to help with the Passover Service and Meal?

If you have an interest in Passover or simply enjoy being in the kitchen, please contact Perry at dlre@cucwp.org.

5) CUUC Recipe Book
Send in your favorite recipe to be included, whether barbecued, baked, or poured, by April 7.

The recipe book will be sold at the Variety Show on Sat, May 12 and the two Sundays afterward, with all profits benefiting the New American Children's Cultural Enrichment Fund.

If you'd like you or your child to be included, please submit the following to Irene Cox at Irene.cox@gmail.com and Erin Foster at eefoster@aol.com:

• 1 recipe

• Your own introduction/description (up to 200 words): perhaps the story behind why you make it, what the dish or cooking in general mean to you.

• A photo of you/your family in the kitchen or a picture you want to share with the congregation.

6) Refugee Children Need Friends
The family that recently arrived from Afghanistan and is living in White Plains would like to make some new friends. Would you and your children like to meet them, maybe for a play date or shared outdoor activity? (The children are 4, 5 and 10.)

For more information, please contact Jane Dixon, lilrhodie@gmail.com.
