NCUU Jazz Concert

The NCUU Jazz Concert will take place on Friday evening, November 16 and again on Saturday afternoon, November 17.

Sally Smith-Adams and Kathryn Taubert, two amazingly talented women will entertain us with their musical and vocal skills. Both are professional entertainers and we are indeed fortunate to have them agree to perform for us.

It is also our 20th Anniversary this year, and we will celebrate this festive occasion after the November 18 concert.

So choose a date and attend one of these amazing concerts. Tickets will go on sale soon at $15 each at the door, and $12 prior to the concert.

See Linda Myers or Pam Ricker for more information. Click here to view the All That Jazz and More concert webpage.

Foyer Book Sale

Foyer Book sale for first Sunday in August! Peg and Julie request that you bring your avid reader curiosity and peruse the books for sale! The money for the books goes towards the needs of the NCUU fellowship. There will be an Honor System Box for payment. And of course, our finance committee will count and deposit the funds. There will be a sign with modest prices for books. This book sale is not a replacement for a possible Extravaganza ABC and + or – P Sale with members support (Arts, Books, Crafts and maybe Plants) earlier next year.

Collect and Save them for our Fall Sale in October.

No textbooks or magazines, please.
