Maybe you've heard about a group called "UUppity Women," and have wondered just what it could be. UUppities has pulled the women of this congregation together and served our congregation for many years. UUppities helped connect women to church events and activities and took the lead role in organizing the receptions after memorial services, and our annual Elder Dinner (which celebrates members of our community who are 70 or older). Additionally, UUppities has always held meetings two nights a month as an opportunity for women to check in and exchange information about skills and interests. In recent years however, attendance at these night meetings declined and eventually we stopped holding them but the mission of uniting women in service of our church continues.
Please feel free to contact the church office if you have any questions or comments. Thanks to all the women who have participated over the years in all these church activities. Through the UU Women's Network interested women will continue to be notified of opportunities to volunteer in church activities. Additionally, if there are particular causes or interests that represent UU principles which you would like to see addressed or shared, we can let other women know through the UU Women's Network.
It's interesting ... some people always mourn the passing of a beloved institution. Yet the creation of the UU Women's Network is not the end of UUppities, but its transformation.
