Book Discussion Group
Peter Carey's True History of the Kelly Gang tells the story of the Down Under's legendary outlaw, Ned Kelly, who was executed at the age of 26. This novel shows us how a tough kid with an attitude and too much energy gets driven deeper and deeper into crime by constant oppression.

We all love our coffee and tea after the Sunday service, but there are - sadly - no magic elves to make it! Members of the UCM community are needed to make, serve and clean up afterwards.
It's not difficult, thanks to Frank Greene's incredibly detailed instructions and it's actually kind of fun. So if you're interested, please e-mail the Java Jiver co-ordinator, Sue Montgomery, at email@example.com. If you're a beginner, she'll find someone with experience to work alongside you.
The Caring Network is short of volunteer drivers to take people to doctors’ appointments, to clinics, or to bring them home from hospital visits. Please contact Phyllis Greggain at 514-366-0618 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a car and are available to help someone out. Francine Desmarais has offered to spearhead the Network on behalf of our francophone members. If you would like to offer your aid or know of a French-speaking member who needs our help, please contact her at 514-750-0709 or email@example.com.
The Caring Network has a roster of people willing to do telephone check-ups, to make hospital or home visits, to prepare food, to deliver food or to act as chauffeur. If you are willing to do any of these things, or have other offers, please let us know. Alternatively, if you know anyone who needs our help, please get in touch with us.
