Dinmore’s Farewell

Dear fellow members and friends of NCUU,

We will be moving to Virginia in March, and we want you to know that you will be greatly missed. When we moved to Citrus County in 2010, we wanted to find people who were compassionate, accepting, and open-minded. We found all that and more when we discovered the NCUU community, which became an important part of our lives. Our years here have been enriched by our involvement with the congregation. The variety of speakers each week and the fun of singing with the choir under Sally’s leadership will be in our memories. We’ll follow NCUU online, and we wish all of you the very best.

Your friends,
Carol and Gordie

Finance Committee

The pledge drive for FY 2019/20 began in January and continues into February. Pledge payments are the greatest source of NCUU income and support our many programs and fixed expenses such as insurances, mortgage payments and utilities. The time and talents of members and active friends get the work done, but pledges are an important enabler.

Envelopes containing pledge forms are in a wicker basket in the foyer for pick-up by our members and active friends. If you have not done so, please pick up your envelope today. A larger wicker basket is also there for completed forms.

Where There’s A Will There’s a Way

We all hope to create a durable presence for Unitarian Universalism in Citrus, Marion and other nearby counties that will extend over decades, beyond our lifetimes. Accordingly, please consider including the Nature Coast Unitarian Universalists in your wills. This will help to ensure a lasting legacy, for future generations as well as for ours.
