Want to share a meal and connect over dinner? MeetUUp Meals offers ways to connect our diverse community. We will share events that people in our own community offer- potluck style meals at private homes, meals out at restaurants, fun events where you are invited to join in- and all you have to do is say Yes! This month we are offering three different events- April 22nd Earth Day fun at the Children's Museum, and two dinners at members homes on April 29th, a family friendly Pizza making meal in Portland, and a potluck adult meal in Falmouth. Sign up on the board at church, or by emailing: welcome@a2u2.org. We'd love to get to know you better!


WAKING UP WHITE: Potluck and discussion of the film I Am Not Your Negro Friday, April 28, 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM All are welcome whether you have seen the film or not. Racism is a part of our society and has most likely benefited or negatively impacted all of us in this congregation whatever our racial identification. Several of us are attending the New England Regional UUA meeting in Woburn this weekend and will most likely have information concerning the charges of institutional racism within the UUA which led to the resignation of President Peter Morales. RSVP to Carol Jenkins requested but not required.

ANNUAL MEETING MAY 19







PLANT AND GARDEN SALE -- JUNE 3







WINDOW DRESSERS is now collecting names of those interested in having energy saving window inserts for the up coming volunteer "build” in September. We will be measuring potential client’s windows during May and June, the frames will then be made over the summer and in September the client’s inserts will be made with the help of many environmentally concerned volunteers. Go to the link at the beginning where you can register as a client and/or as a volunteer. Last year we made a total of 678 inserts in Portland saving clients about 5,500 gallons of fuel oil per year. With a projected life span of ten years, the impact on the environment is enormous. About 22% of all windows made are for those who require special low income pricing, so if you or someone you know is having trouble meeting their energy bills, be sure to contact us for assistance. 10 inserts are then available for a very modest fee. For any questions feel free to contact John Burdick or call 207-592-6535.
