Beautiful Evening with Wonderful Music

Our Sunset Jazz Concert with the Chris Klich Quintet was a special treat. The experience was beautifully expressed by Suzie Behr: “Sitting in the amphitheater in the late afternoon with a glass of wine, watching the sun play on the tops of the trees, surrounded by good friends and listening to truly outstanding music. It just doesn’t get any better than this.”

We even had folks dancing in the aisles! And it was a special treat to hear Chris’ memories of UUFSD, as his mother was a founding member and he was married in the amphitheater.

Thanks to all who came to enjoy the concert and also to the many volunteers who contributed their time and energy. Your attendance and support make these UUFSD musical events possible. Gratefully, Vicky Newman, Concert Coordinator

We pledge once a year in the spring to support all the things we enjoy about our fellowship: music program, RE, UUCare, and our beautiful campus in the chaparral.

The fellowship’s governing board then creates a budget to fund operations and programs at UUFSD in the coming fiscal year. You can vote on this budget at the next congregational meeting in June.

Stop by the Pledge Table on the patio to pick up a plant from Team Generosity. It’s our way of saying, “Thank you for investing in UUCare.”
