Dumbledore’s Army – This year all our wizards and witches, muggles and squibs (along with our entire congregation) will be joining efforts with Cheyenne’s own Ice Cream Island and other UU congregations all over the world to combat illiteracy. Dumbledore’s Army will be collecting gently used or new children’s books (especially infant board books)  to be given to families with young children, to encourage reading and to help fight the Illiteracy Horcrux. Please bring any NEW/GENTLY used books into the church and drop them in a book box by the entrances after Aug 11, 2019. Thank you so much for helping our chapter of Dumbledore’s Army fight against illiteracy!

We have been experiencing a growing issue with peanut residue in the building, especially in the library.  Please, do not bring peanut products into the building, and if your little ones enjoy their peanut butter snacks before coming, please be sure their hands are clean before they touch surfaces used by everyone.  We are seeing almost daily allergic reactions, so we ask you to please be diligent. It may be an inconvenience to you, but it can be life-threatening to those who are allergic. 
  • Please bring Finger Foods to share
  • No Peanuts/Peanut product items
  • Please come early to help set up
  • Please stay a few minutes afterward to help clean up
  • Don’t forget to take home any trays and/or leftovers
Thanks to you for making our Coffee Hour Fantastic!

The shape of containers/bottles/baskets is unimportant.  We are grateful for any assistance you can provide.  Please contact Mary Scherden, or you can drop supplies off at the Administrator’s office during office hours.
