RE News: Sun Apr 29

Lifespan Religious Education
The Variety Show is a unique event at CUUC. It combines social justice, entertainment, socialization, food, and music into one spectacular multi-generational gala. We raise money for an important cause (The New American Children’s Cultural Enrichment Fund), while having a great time watching CUUCers and friends of all ages perform their special talent, whether juggling, dancing, singing, or telling jokes. There is a scrumptious bake sale and a raffle with prizes for all tastes. Raffle tickets are on sale the next two Sundays. See the RE News for all the ways you can participate and, most importantly, come to the show on Sat, May 12.
