RVUUF’s Religious Explorations program reminds parents and caregivers: Pick-up time for children 7 and younger is usually by 11:45 a.m., or 15 minutes after the service ends. Older children are dismissed from class when service ends to join their parents for coffee hour. There will be a friendly, musical pick-up reminder this Sunday at 11:45 a.m.

RVUUF will march and pull a float this year in the Rogue Valley Pride Parade on Saturday, Oct. 14.

Set-up starts at 10:30 a.m. on Union Street (across from the Fire Station on Siskiyou Boulevard), and the parade begins at 11 a.m.

“Blooming With Pride” is the theme of this year’s parade. From this week’s “News to Note”:

“Young and young at heart are welcome. Bring a friend if you wish! Please wear rainbows, bright colors, fun costumes, or a flower in your hair. We will have UU banners and flags to carry.”
