REMEMBER a€“ EVERYONE a€“ OF ANY AGE a€“ IS WELCOME, EVEN IF YOUa€™VE NEVER ATTENDED ONE OF OUR SOCIALS BEFORE! Refreshment time at our regular meetings offers us the chance to have informal conversations with our fellow BUUFs. Wednesday, May 11Meg Riley, minister of the Church of the Larger Fellowship and Phil Lund, Prairie Star District Faith Development and Congregational Growth chair, spoke about their very exciting plans for the future. We set the dates for our summer socials and the Board of Directora€™s summer strategy meeting.
Luke Markve, Program Committee Chair, passed out a sheet of suggestions for programs for the coming year.
We passed the proposed amendments to our Bylaws, and we passed the Resolution Concerning State Budget Shortfall submitted by Bill Weir a€“ these are both attached to this newsletter. The Board of Directors has designated a special fund in memory of LaGretta Dean to be set aside for our building fund. Maija Zaeska forwarded this information from Nancy Drigans a€“ The Baby Animal Fair raised $8,398.02, which was matched by a Heifer International donor to become $16,796.00!
This Resolution was brought to the BUUF for our consideration by Bill Weir, friend of our Fellowship and member of the First Unitarian Society in Minneapolis. THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that we, the members of the Buffalo Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, call on Senators Klobuchar and Franken, and Representatives Walz, Kline, Paulsen, McCollum, Ellison, Bachmann, Peterson and Cravaack as well as President Barack Obama, to shift federal funding priorities from war and the interests of the few, to meeting the essential needs of us all.
