June 2016 UNIverse

We kick off June at Northwest with some flat foot dancing, a few Irish tunes, a little American folk and a general good time at the Hungry Ear on Saturday night, followed by a meow-valous morning with our furry, feathered, and finny friends at Sunday’s Blessing of the Animals service. Mid-month, we’ve got a timely book for discussion, the always enjoyable Outgathering Potluck, Dining for Women and more! We’re heading into summer with a warm and wonderful month of programming. You won’t want to miss any of it! Read the UNIverse for details.

Two daffodils in a yellow circle

We’re hoping that the forecasted April showers will bring not only May flowers, but an explosion of color in our lobby as members make their pledges and insert their silk daffodils into the display before our annual pledge campaign ends on April 3. We’ll have more chances to see flowers and other green things on April 24 as we celebrate Earth Day by decorating and planting clay pots, exploring the Green Market, learning from the Alternative Transportation Expo, sharing food and reflecting on our role as stewards of the planet.
