Our annual Chocolate Auction will take place on Sunday, February 11 during Coffee Hour. Each year, the Youth Group puts on this event right before Valentine's Day to give everyone a chance to get something sweet for their sweetheart (or maybe just for ourselves), as well as raise money for their service projects and UU scholarships. We still need more donations to fill out the auction however, so if you have a great chocolate recipe you've been dying to try out, now is the time! Please contact Jessie Slade, our Director of Religious Education, at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or to sign up.
Join us for a viewing of the PBS Documentary, "Growing Up Trans," after which a Q&A will be facilitated with questions and comments regarding transgender students and their families. A description of the documentary: "Just a generation ago, it was adults, not kids, who changed genders. But today, many children are transitioning, too - with new medical options, and at younger and younger ages. In "Growing Up Trans," FRONTLINE takes viewers on an intimate and eye-opening journey inside the struggles and choices facing transgender kids and their families." All are welcome. Refreshments will be served. Presented by the First Parish LGBTQ CHALICE Social Justice Group.
Please join the Alliance on Wednesday, February 21 for a book review led by Betsey Detwiler. For many years, Betsey had her own bookstore in Cohasset and because of her extensive knowledge, always gives an interesting book review. The meeting will begin with refreshments at 10 am in the Fogg Parlor followed by the review. We hope to see you then.
Join us on Saturday evening, March 17 in the Parish Hall. Mark your calendars! Get out your music! Tune up your sax! Put on your dancing shoes! We are looking for all kinds of talent to join us in making winter a lot of fun. Young people who would like to sing, dance, play an instrument or drum, let Marie Miller (email@example.com) or Peg Kitchenham (firstname.lastname@example.org) know. We’ll help you. Adults also should let us know what their act will be and about how long it runs.
