Take the UUFSD Concert Survey


Please help us plan for upcoming concerts by taking a few minutes to complete the UUFSD Concert Survey at

Your input and suggestions regarding musicians and musical style(s), as well as preferred time of day and day of week for these musical events will help in scheduling concerts most likely to be well attended and enjoyed by the largest number. It “takes a village” to help insure the success of these concerts, so we are also seeking volunteers to help with the various concert-related tasks. Whether or not you are willing to volunteer, please take a few moments to complete the Concert Survey. Your input is anonymous, unless you choose to provide contact information.

We will be collecting survey input through the Survey Monkey link through Sunday, August 20.

If you need a paper copy of the survey, please email Vicky at Thanks for your participation. UUFSD Concert Planning Group (Chris Byrnes, Chris Lehman, Jill Ballard, Rich Franzwa, Mark Tuller, Vicky Newman)

In Solidarity with Charlottesville

We are touched by the tragedy that occurred in Charlottesville last week. A memorial service was held on Wednesday for Heather Heyer, the victim of the terrorist hate crime. Members of the Charlottesville community were asked to wear purple, Heather’s favorite color, to demonstrate solidarity with the meaning of her life.

We ask that members and friends wear purple to the Service on August 20. In addition we will distribute purple ribbons to everyone in solidarity with Heather Heyer and the other victims of the Charlottesville tragedy.

July Food Bank Results Are In!

In July at the San Diego Food Bank, UUFSD volunteers bagged 12,000 pounds of potatoes in just 2 hours! A great way to put “Service is our Prayer” in ACTION! Thanks everyone!

We had so many of you wanting to help this month. But the volunteer list filled so quickly that only a few from this group were able to make it. Remember, it’s always the first Thursday of the month.

So, if you have the Group code and have registered with the Food Bank already you can register WITH THEM on their website as soon as you see that date listed. If you need the Group Code please email me
