Join us for the biannual Hunger Banquet on Saturday, March 8, starting at 6:00 p.m. This event is led by our Coming of Age high school youth. Designed for kids 6-13, it is an evening of learning, experiencing, and eating. Lots of movement, lots of personal interactions. It’s difficult to make a discussion about hunger entertaining – but this event succeeds in doing that. Come with an open mind. Child care is provided for children too young to attend (under 5).
"Beware the Ides . . ." Toga Optional Party: Dance Like it is 44 B.C.
The fun begins at 7:00 p.m. with food and fellowship in Freeman Hall. The entertainment portion of the evening features the Follies team traveling back to ancient Rome, where the Unitarius Universalum Church is in the midst of its pledge campaign. Can they meet their financial goal, or will those ominous figures outside bring them to the canvass? Sign up in Freeman Hall, at SignUp Genius at http://goo.gl/EKiz4c or email Martha@uuccharlotte.org. Childcare is available for those who request it before March 10.

Our next volunteer date is Saturday, March 15 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Our seven volunteers will paint, build a handicap ramp, and demolish a bathroom at an existing home. No experience is necessary and all skill levels are welcome. To register for the volunteer day, go to http://goo.gl/6JfnqW.
The UUCC will be holding a book drive this spring to benefit Julia’s Café and Books, a division of Habitat for Humanity of Charlotte. All profits from the sale of these books will help provide affordable housing for families in need through Habitat for Humanity. Please look through your shelves and boxes and donate any books you can spare. Drop them off in our collection bin in Freeman Hall on Sunday.
