In February we bagged 4800 lbs of oranges for those locally who need a bit of assistance – in just 2 hours! Join us at the next Food Bank Volunteer night on Thursday March 6th from 6 – 8 PM. Anyone over 7 years old can help! We meet the 1st Thursday of each month. Usually we just put food in boxes on an assembly line – really easy, no lifting, no bending, great camaraderie. This is a wonderful way of helping locally those in need and strengthening our UUFSD community as well. The San Diego Food Bank distributes over 20 million pounds of food annually to individuals, families and a network of nonprofit organizations that work to alleviate hunger throughout San Diego county. They need our help! Email Sara Ohara at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in joining us.

About a decade ago, in response to long-cherished hopes, members contributed generously toward building a memorial in the heart of the fellowship. In 2007 UUFSD contracted with Jerry Thiebolt of Clay Associates for its design and installation. Enough money was raised to build five walls, a pathway, and three murals incorporating a total of more than 280 individual tiles.
Donations to reserve individual memorial tiles are intended to help amortize the large construction outlay and pay for tile engraving and future maintenance.
Twenty-five tiles are available on the wall named AGAVE, which echoes the healing values of Truth, Reason, Justice, Love, Peace, Honor, and Virtue.
A hundred tiles are available on the wall named BIRD, which faces the central sculpture Remembrance by James Hubbell.
Ninety tiles are available on the wall named LOTUS, to be installed this winter. The lotus blossom with its strong stem symbolizes the unbreakable bonds of human love and family.
Jerry’s designs for the future fourth and fifth walls illustrate the themes CHALICE AND SUN and TREE OF LIFE. They will increase the total number of tiles to 500, which should serve the fellowship’s needs far into its second century.
Periodically we remind and encourage members to donate and reserve tiles ahead of need for themselves, spouses/partners, and children, or for other living or deceased fellowship members, or to join with other members to donate tiles honoring present or past members.
The Memorial Walls policy statement and a form and instructions for each minimum $300 per tile donation and location selection are available at uufsd.org/facilities/memorial-walkway. Or contact Barbara Blomgren at 858-453-7414 or firstname.lastname@example.org
