. Chalicelight Gallery
Our Gallery is currently displaying artwork made by the youth of our congregation. Take a look around and if something catches your eye, you can buy it! All proceeds from the sale of the artwork will go towards the purchase of new playground equipment and picnic tables. There are paintings, jewelry and sculptures - these items would make great gifts, so come out and admire all the talent our young people have on display! MVUUF Coffeehouse
The MVUUF Coffee House will be Sat., June 26
, 7 - 9:30 p.m. with Special Guest Dave Santucci! Enjoy a relaxing evening of music, coffee, and your MVUUF friends. Music will be provided by special guest musician Dave Santucci, as well as our own Joe and Clare Zimmerman with Kurt Zimmerman, and Ann Rismiller and David Nolin with Catherine Queener. Dave Santucci has been fiddling with music since he was a little boy. He has contributed piano, keyboard and various other tidbits for acts such as Aunt Beanies 1st Prize Beets, Irish Leo, and Artist's Playlist. With a brand new fire lit beneath him, he is focusing his attention on his on-again off-again romance with the piano. Happy to have his eyes on the future, he likes to think he is only getting started. There is no admission fee for this fun event, but we do request a donation at the door. There will be coffee, tea and snacks available for purchase. Please join us - even if you prefer tea! Forum in July and August
Just to let you know, the Forum
will only be published once a month for July and August. So don't panic if you don't receive two mailings or emails! In September we'll be back to two issues a month.
