There will be no Choir Rehearsal on Wednesday, Nov. 22, due to the Thanksgiving holiday. “See you next week!”
The RVUUF Choir begins a new year with its first rehearsal on Wednesday, Sept. 6. “Now is a great time to join this lively group of music-makers. MEN are especially encouraged.” Rehearsals take place from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Wednesdays in RVUUF’s Great Hall. “Come out and make a joyful noise!”
When we moved to Ashland three years ago, RVUUF offered us a community of people who became friends to walk with us on our journey through life. We found a community of people that we could help support and who we could turn to when we needed support.
This is my last President’s post as I am handing the gavel to …? I want to thank my fellow Board members and the Congregation for the opportunity to serve as your president for the past two years. This position has changed me. I have a greater appreciation for our community and increased self-confidence. I intend to remain on the Board another year to ensure a smooth transition to the new president. I love how RVUUF has evolved in the past two years. We are making every child, youth, and adult who walks in the front door feel cherished.
I am pleased to report that our RVUUF staff and volunteers are doing a great job. The Finance Committee has created a 2016-17 budget. Stewardship, led by Jim Meckel, has nearly completed the pledge drive, which included inspiring talks on gratitude by Mary Rexford, Krynn Lukacs and Shaun Garner.
