Unitarian Universalist Potluck Dinner

Em Kianka ’13 invites you to the Unitarian Universalist Campus Ministry’s first potluck of the year:

Q: Why did the Unitarian Universalist cross the road?
A: To support the chicken in its search for its own path.

Do you enjoy exploring personal beliefs in the context of a supportive, spiritual community oriented towards social justice? Do you like sitting around a table and engaging in friendly debate about whether or not your religion is in fact a religion? Do you drink more coffee than is necessary?

This Sunday (September 16th) is the Unitarian Universalist Campus Ministry’s (UUCM) first potluck of the year! Whether or not you were raised Unitarian Universalist, still identify as a UU, or simply want to learn about a very liberal religious and humanist movement, come to socialize, eat wonderful food, and learn about Unitarian Universalism and the UUCM!

Pick Up a Compost Bucket

Oooh baby... chocolate is the symbol of love

For all the people in the Shoutbox who were asking, here’s how to never waste a piece of organic food material again. Writes Zach Burns ’14:

Ever feel guilty tossing a banana peel into the trash? Pick up a compost bucket on Sunday, Monday or Tuesday night from 7:00-10:00pm in Olin or Wes Shop. Every apple core and egg shell that you toss into your blue bucket is ultimately used as fertilizer at Long Lane Farm. You don’t pee in the sink, so don’t throw compost in the garbage! Buckets are waiting for you!

Date: September 16th, 17th, and 18th
Time: 7-10 pm
Place: Olin or WeShop
Cost: Free!
