News & Upcoming Events

 

Country Roads Auction Party

Saturday, May 9, in the sanctuary. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

Admission: $10 if paid by April 26.  $15 after April 26 and at the door.

Free childcare with advance registration by April 26.

Donation forms deadline: April 12

Dress like a country music star with rhinestones, boots, big hair & Stetson  or a farmer in overalls & straw hat.  (Jeans work with any role!) 

The admission price includes a generous array of  hors d’oeuvres, coffee, tea and dessert for everyone, casual or formal. A cash bar featuring beer, wine and 

soda will also be available. The social hour, hors d-oeuvres, and silent auction start the evening off followed by a live auction with auctioneer Ron Rose in his trademark cowboy hat. Past live auction items have included parties and dinners; guided tours and nature hikes; handyperson services; musical performances; lessons (including computers, cooking, dog training, knitting); gift baskets; original artwork and handcrafted items. The silent auction typically has an array of smaller items, from jewelry and baked goods to books and trinkets, with something for every interest and budget.

How you can help?

•Come to the auction and bid often. Personal checks and cash are both accepted 

(but not credit cards). The auction is our largest fundraiser and helps fund the 

current year’s operating expenses. 

• Buy your admission ticket early.  You’ll save money and help us plan food 

quantities more accurately to reduce waste. Buy your tickets at church from Bill 

Pfoutz or mail your check  (payable to UUCH with auction in memo line) to the 

church. 

•Donate to the auction. Donation forms are available in the back of the sanctuary 

and here: Auction Donation Form The auction committee needs donation forms by April 12 (and sooner if possible!)

to compile the auction catalog and set up the auction software.

•Help with the auction. Volunteers are always needed for auction set-up, food 

preparation, food serving and clean up after the auction. 

For more information, contact auction coordinators Bill and Yvonne Pfoutz 

 (email: auction@uuhagerstownmd.org).


Joseph Priestley District Assembly 

Friday evening Apr. 10 & Saturday Apr. 11 ACE Conference Center in Lafayette Hill (near Philadelphia)

          The annual JPD assembly is an opportunity to be part of the larger UU world-worshipping, learning, and socializing with other Unitarian Universalists. The assembly is especially useful for board members and committee chairs but valuable for any UU. 

          This year's theme is "Weaving the Fabric of Our Faith: A Tapestry of Impact, Innovation and Interconnection."

Highlights of the 2015 JPD assembly:

  • Friday keynote addresses by Pat Infante and Mark Bernstein
  • Friday & Saturday worship services
  • Friday & Saturday workshops with practical tools to implement ideas from the keynote speeches. 
  • Friday reception and Saturday meals to connect with other UUs

For more information and the link to online registration visit http://www.jpduua.org

           Registration by Mar 27: adult fee $145 for both days; lower rates for only Friday or Saturday. Higher fees after Mar 27. Free childcare up to age 4 if reserved by Mar 27. A limited number of sleeping rooms at a special rate are available at the conference center.
