Here are some events and notable dates that might be of interest to you this year:

 
1) Volunteerism: The Struggle Is Real! March 16, 9 a.m. - noon (8:30 Meet and Greet), UUs of Germantown.
 
We’ll take some time to examine changing demographic trends and what they tell us about who volunteers and why, and look at new ways of recruiting, retaining and appreciating the folks who power our congregations. Pat Infante, Central East Region Primary Contact, will facilitate the workshop. For more details and to register, visit: http://www.greaterphillyuu.org/events/volunteerism/
 
2) Singers Workshop, April 13, 12:30-5 p.m., UU Church of Delaware County
 
Calling all singers! Come and participate in group singing exercises and workshops geared toward developing your voice. For more details and to register, visit: http://www.greaterphillyuu.org/events/singersworkshop/
 
3) New Hope Celebrates Pride Parade, May 18, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. (meet at 11)
 
Our congregations have been participating in this parade for the last seven years, and have enjoyed joining other faiths as we walk to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person.  If you or your congregation would like to join us, please contact us in advance at welcoming@uuflb.org or find us in the staging area by 11 on the day of the parade.
