UUCD needs YOU!

If you have been a member of  UUCD for two years you are eligible to serve as an officer of the Board of Trustees. It’s a one year commitment and can be rewarding for you and a great gift of your service to our congregation. You can gain leadership experience and lend your talents and new ideas to our Board.

This year we are looking to fill the positions of: President  –  Vice President (or two Co-Presidents)  -Treasurer

One Trustee position is also open. A Trustee serves for a 3 year term but does not have the same membership requirement as the officers.

Elections will be held at the Annual Meeting in June. More information about these positions can be found in the Member Portal of under Board of Trustees Documents. If you are interested please contact one of the Nominating Team: Jackie Alexander, Dan Brodax, or Annie Senol.

Soup Kitchen Corner                                      by Judy Lacker                                       

On Saturday, April 6,some members of Soup Kitchen Team 2 (Team Leader Carl Tramontana. Rose Schlemmer, Lisa Deldin, Andrea Andersen) will be returning to the Dorothy Day Soup Kitchen on Spring Street to help serve take-out meals that were cooked in volunteers’ homes as well as bagged sandwiches for lunches and breakfasts and hot lunches for Pacific House also prepared in volunteers’ homes as well as through donations. Unfortunately, we are not yet able to serve the guests a meal inside because of the Covid pandemic.

You can also help feed our neighbors with a gift card in any amount from any local supermarket.. Lynn Taborsak has also been scheduling the sandwich donations so we have just the right amount each day at Dorothy Day Soup Kitchen. If you are interested in making sandwiches, please email her at We can all be an important part of the fight to end hunger in our community!

In the past couple of years, we have lost some of our Dorothy Day volunteers. Please consider volunteering to be on a DD Team – it only involves a few hours, 3 Saturdays per year. You will find it to be a very rewarding experience. Please contact Judy Lacker for more information or to sign up.

We have resumed collecting non-perishable food donations on Sunday mornings. Please place your food donations in the basket in the foyer. You can sign up to help transport the weekly collection to The Dorothy Day Hospitality House on Spring Street.
