Meals at FUU by 11:00 AM

Posted 08/29/2019 by Jan Phillips

Good morning, I have received a request from our Meal Delivery Team. Over the Summer the meal drop-off time to FUU was moved earlier to 11:00 AM, because of more limited times the church was open. This time has worked well for the deliverers and they have asked if the time could stay 11:00 AM going forward. The Meal Train instructions have been changed going forward. If you signed up to cook a meal in September and this doesn't work for you, please let me know, and we can make other arrangements. If you are a CMC person, you can ignore this email. LOL! In solidarity, Jan

June Meal Train

Posted 05/31/2019 by Jan Phillips

Good morning, all, The June Meal Train is now available for sign-up. We are going to make a change for the Summer. Because First UU has fewer activities going on in the Summer, and the church is generally open in the mornings, but not so much later in the day on the weekends, we are asking that meals be delivered by 11:00 AM. This will make it so that there isn't an instance where the church is closed when you are trying to deliver the meal to First UU. As always, this doesn't apply to CMC folks. You will take the meals directly to CMC. The June dates for which meals are needed are all weekend dates. Thank you so very much for your continued support of Edith and her family. In solidarity, Jan
