Have your heard of 10-year-old pioneer Eleanora Hallen? On Saturday, discover her story through the journals she kept in the 1830s. Sunday is St. Patrick's Day. There will be a potato bar lunch after a service led by young adults from our congregation -- their reflections are always refreshing and thought-provoking.

The 1830s world of Eleanora Hallen (a BidNite offer)

A "pioneer soup" lunch will be served and Caroline will share songs and artifacts from the period. Copies of Caroline's book Eleanora's Diary: the Journals of a Canadian Pioneer Girl will be available for $10.

Saint Paddy's Day Potato Bar Lunch
Plan to attend this joint fundraiser by the Social & Environmental Concerns Committee (SECC) and Hospitality Committee to support UCM's membership in Canadian Unitarians for Social Justice (CUSJ) -- with any remaining funds going towards other SECC projects.
Christina Duvander, SECC Chair, will also be selling her succulent homemade Seville orange marmalade, along with delicious desserts donated by committee members. The Hospitality Committee will absorb all costs, so all donations go toward the fundraiser.
Nan Kleins, Executive Chef, Hospitality Committee
