Join The Willage at UUFSD for a Pumpkin Potluck and Chili Cookoff in honor of the bounty of autumn. Everyone in the UUFSD community is invited!

If you’ve been wondering what The Willage is all about (and would like to connect with the families of young children at the fellowship) this is a great opportunity to find out.

Please email whether or not you are on Team Pumpkin (and will bring a savory or sweet autumn-themed dish — store-bought is fine) or Team Chili (and will bring your best chili for entry in our competition — there will be a prize!).

We will also have a couple of old-fashioned harvest activities for the kids and read a spooky story or two by candlelight. Feel free to wear costumes or just come in PJs (remember, all Willage events are Judgment-Free Zones). Hooray for autumn-time!

For the third consecutive year, UUFSD will be hosting a Death Cafe — an opportunity to talk openly about death and dying in a neutral, confidential and (believe it or not) lively environment. Death Cafe is a non-profit international movement that grows in popularity every year, and many people are now adding the Death Cafe experience to their bucket lists (fittingly so!). The event is from 2-4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 29 in the Core Area and is free of charge, open to all and offered with no intention of leading participants toward any conclusion, product or course of action. The sole objective of the Death Café experience is to increase awareness of death, while helping people make the most of their lives. This event is always packed and we do expect a waiting list. You can register at, or email Tiffany Fox for more details.
