University of Hartford Unitarian Universalists
I have a LOT of important announcements, so PLEASE read on...
MARCH 29th - Class registration begins
I want attendance to be at its best and there are a number of people that I know are interested in the group, but are not attending. Since we are approaching the time of putting together our class schedules for next semester, I would like to know if this is because Tuesdays at 5:30 PM is a bad time to meet. Please give feedback on whether this is a good time or not. I'm open to suggestions of a different meeting time for next semester, but I want the meeting time to be chosen and solidified before class registration on MARCH 29th.
APRIL 1st - Springtime Soulful Sundown
We are co-hosting this event with the Unitarian Meeting House. This takes place Saturday, April 1st @ 7 - 8 PM at the Unitarian Meeting House (50 Bloomfield Ave, Hartford, CT) This is a combination concert + informal worship featuring the live music of local group Blended Groove (www.blendedgrooveband.com) and is FREE! Please let me know if you would like to attend and/or RSVP on facebook.com.
APRIL 2nd - APRIL 23rd - Sunday Drum Circle
We're starting up our Drum circle again. They'll be held (almost) every Sunday in April @ 1 PM, on the porch/dock of Village Pond, next to Konover. Weather permitting of course! Bring drums, shakers, pots & pans, etc.
APRIL 2nd - Tentative date for Bash the Trash Workshop
We are in discussion with the environmental campus group, HEDucate about co-hosting a workshop on making percussion instruments from trash items. This would also be a fundraiser, involving a $1 donation. Please keep an eye out for these items: chopsticks (or anything else you think would make a good beater), coffee cans, soup cans, soda can tabs, papertowel rolls, margarine tubs, wrapping paper, wire, duct tape, metal bottle caps, and Y-shaped fallen branches.
APRIL 5th - Budget Request Form Due
I'm in the process of working out the budget request form for SGA so if there are any materials/workshops/speakers/events that you would like to see us have/do next year, now is the time to bring these ideas to me and we'll request it in our budget ASAP.
APRIL 18th - E-board elections
We'll be holding elections for E-board positions for next year. Positions will be:
If you are interested in running for any of these positions, it is vitally important that you attend this meeting. If you cannot attend, contact me ASAP. The job descriptions are pretty usual, but the biggest requirement is being passionate about the campus ministry group.
APRIL 21-22nd - RADIUS Young Adult Conference
District conference on young adult ministry. Go to www.uua.org/yacm/radius/ for more info . Contact me if you are interested in going and we can carpool.
APRIL 30th - End of the Year UHUUS Potluck Picnic!
Celebrating that we've made it through the year with a fun potluck picnic at Elizabeth Park. Even if you haven't attended a single meeting, join us for food, frisbee, and fellowship. Time to be decided. I'll be setting up a carpool closer to the date.
And, as always, our meetings are being held Tuesdays @ 5:30 PM in Gengras Room 131, please attend. And if you haven't, check us out at facebook.com.
