Cancel and reschedule for Summer Gathering July 9 >July 17?

Summer gathering 2017 of Unitarian Fellowship on July 9 CANCELED but rescheduling it, (possibly to July 17,Monday.)

Dear friends and members of the Fellowship,

Unfortunately our member Pauline is still away and my backup sponsor for our gathering at the Foreign Correspondent's Club is unable to come after all on July 9.(We must have a FCCJmember present to use the dining room).

It is such a convenient location and reasonable price for nice food that we have tentatively rescheduled for Monday July 17 (a holiday).
5:00 to 8:00
Please let me know if you are planning to come.
I will send out a RECONFIRMATION and more detailed directions as soon as we have the OK from the club again.

I had a very busy time in New Orleans with the Unitarian Universalist Association (of N America) annual meeting-- called the General Assembly. I returned June 30th.
Eliminating the mindset (sometimes unconscious) of white racial supremacy was a main theme.
Among many workshops, music, and services interesting speakers included legal activist Bryan Stevenson (most recent book is "Just Mercy") and CLF (the newsletter we often use) leader, the Rev Meg Riley "Improvising Faith Off the Binary."
President Tom Andrews of Unitarian Universalist Service Committee presented the 2017 E.Roosevelt award to Linda Sarsour-- Palestian-American political activist and one of the leaders of the Woman's March on Washington in jan 2017-- who gave another a stirring progressive speech.
Susan Frederick-Gray was elected the new UUA president. The first woman in the history of the organization.

Looking forward to seeing you on July 17 --or else at our NEXT regular meeting on September 10th.

Peggy Kanada, moderator
