Bard Hall at First UU Hillcrest
Save the Date for our RevUUe! At this 150th fundraiser we'll be bidding a fond farewell to our beloved Rev. Omega as her terms comes to a close with a variety of songs performed by our own First UU Staff. We'll also have a pop-up shop featuring cool UU commemorative items (and a few surprises) along with a dessert and beverage bar. We hope you'll contribute to our generosity offering supporting our year-long 150th Anniversary celebrations. Not to be missed, see you there! Register for your free tickets.
Our 150th kickoff celebration on January 28th was a big hit. In the morning, members gathered to visit on the lower patio and enjoy the sunshine. Our sound therapist Terry provided healing sound sessions, which were very popular, while others enjoyed the meandering magician and fascinating historical art show by John Keasler, which lined the walls of Bard Hall.
Soon enough it was time for our short program in the Meeting House with special music and visiting dignitaries. Highlights included a message from council member Chris Ward (a church member) and San Diego Mayor Todd Gloria, who provided a special proclamation.
