RVUUF’s annual Congregational Meeting takes place at noon Sunday, May 21, 2017, in the Great Hall. Members will vote on three items.

1. Formal approval of the annual Budget for 2017-2018.

2. The Conflict Resolution Team (CRT) wants to change its name to the Right Relations Team (RRT). This requires a change in the ByLaws.

3. The Nominating Committee puts forth its candidates for: Board of Directors — Roger Howe and Colleen Chambers. Nominating Committee — Delores Nims and Krynn Lukacs.

“It is important that all show up in support of RVUUF,” Jim Meckel, board president, said.

President’s Post: Let’s all embrace diversity

This is my first letter to the Fellowship and I would like to take the opportunity to thank Delores Nims for her great leadership over the past two years. She has worked hours and hours to try to get the Fellowship back on track and I believe she has succeeded in most all ways. Thank you, Delores!

As I assume the presidency of the board I am humbled by the task. I love this fellowship and have great expectations for its future. I look at the first words of our Mission Statement and I am in awe at the “EMBRACE DIVERSITY” statement. I am an agnostic but I have great friends that are atheists and many that are traditional Christian souls. They all have a place in our Fellowship and I honor them all!

As we move into this coming year let us all embrace diversity and celebrate that we are all a part of the whole that we call the Rogue Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.

I love you all!
