November 10: Are We There Yet? Becoming a UU Green Sanctuary
Service Leader: The First UU Winnipeg Green Action Committee
Service Coordinator: M.C. Ziegler
Although a foundation was begun in 2008, UU Green Sanctuary accreditation was a road not taken. Last year we asked if there was interest in pursuing that goal now, and most folk said yes. So where are we and what lies ahead? Let’s take stock.

Hospitality Setup Sign-up Sheet
We need some volunteers to help with Sunday mornings for hospitality set up - we are at risk of losing this wonderful part of our time together.
We all enjoy our tea and coffee hospitality after the Sunday service - it is an important part of community building, catching up with friends and making new friends. Please help keep our morning hospitality happening. We are in big need of people to volunteer for the set up each Sunday. The time commitment is approximately 45 minutes before church and under an hour afterwards for clean up.
Use this easy-to-use online Hospitality Setup Sign-up Sheet to sign up for a Sunday or two now and give it a try - it's fun and you meet great people.
Please help keep our morning hospitality alive and well for all to enjoy.
