Remembrance – Pat Putman
Some of you may remember Pat Putman, a charter member of NCUU. Sad to say she passed away on April 18. She was living in Dowling Park Retirement Community, Live Oak, FL. Pat was the second person to sign our Membership Book on June 7, 1998. She served on the board and later as vice president. Pat was active in the Women’s Group and many other projects at NCUU. Her daughter Kathleen says, “Services at NCUU were deeply important to her”. Here is her daughter’s favorite picture of Pat. We remember her fondly.
– Julie Macdonald and Jean McCauley
Many thanks to those who staffed the NCUU table at the Ocala Juneteenth Celebration on Saturday June 19: Carole Goodwin, Connie Hart, Gordon Hart, Holly Alexander, Jean McCauley, Linda Myers, Marcie Clutter (former NCUU member), Matt Ciszewski, Renee DeMar (partner of Carole Goodwin), Sally Smith-Adams, Sarah Link (Citrus Democratic Women), Travis McCauley (Jean McCauley’s son). We handed out grab bag items for children, cold bottles of water and fruit snacks as well as information about NCUU and current social issues. Special thanks to Samantha Carter who provided many items but could not attend due to a home emergency and to Susan and Dwain Reeder (Citrus Democrats) for providing the much appreciated canopy. And Extra Special Thanks to Linda Myers for coordinating everything! Let’s hope we can make this an annual NCUU event.
L-r Linda Myers, booth coordinator, Marcie, Linda’s friend, Gordon Hart, Connie Hart and Matthew Ciszewski.

Even if NCUU is closed right now, plants and weeds keep growing! If you are looking for a way to get out of the house, maintain social distancing (6ft to whatever you comfortable with) and get some fresh air and exercise, Sally and I would be happy for you to join us on the first Friday every month between sunup and 11 AM. Even if it is for just a hour before the heat builds up, you are welcome!
