Goodbye ceremony at the old property

PineGroveOn June 12th the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Klamath County will have gathering and picnic, to say “Goodbye” to the historic property, as it is in the proces of being sold.
All interested are welcome to join the fellowship’s short farewell ceremony, and afterward stay for a “bring-your-own-picnic” among the pine groves and cottonwoods. The now giant cottonwoods were mere saplings in a 1913 photo in the fellowship’s Archives.
The 1910 school building burned in January 2011. Only the fireplace, built by the second owner and an architect, Sheldon Brumbaugh, remains. Brumbaugh used the building for his office. From 1960 to 2016 the fellowship was the third property owner, having purchased the property from Brumbaugh’s widow.

1. General plans for our Fellowship presence have grown over the past year out of a

recognized need to attract new members including those with children; and some

members who have been consistently supportive of keeping the present program alive are

leaving. Also, we have a new Social Media crew that are interested in publishing our

developing program to the wider community.

In order to keep our present program going and to develop a broader appeal we need

IMMEDIATE HELP in filling two primary needs:

Worship Committee (Develops service schedule; Assists service leader development;

Announces services in H&N, website, other social media etc.;

Recruits greeters and social hour hosts / hostesses)

Newsletter Editor (Develops / produces monthly newsletter for email distribution;

maintains mailing list; submits newsletter to social media coordinator)

2. Modified By-Laws were developed to supplant those developed after the fire and

somehow misplaced. They were attached to the call to Meeting in order that you could be

comfortable with them prior to a motion to approve them.
