Verdugo HUUT! #18: Bowie on the Moon

We can be heroes in our hootenanny in the hills! To celebrate both the 50th anniversary of the moon landing (July 20) and the release of David Bowie's "Space Oddity" (July 11), The Verdugo HUUT! is hosting an evening chock full o' starmen, spaceboys, and Major Tom. We may even see if there is life on Mars. The 18th Verdugo HUUT! will feature a larger bill than usual (like our Beatles show last July) and, as always, the evening will be light, friendly, compelling, and filled with coffee, snacks, and prizes. Starring  Tom Bishel, Carla Rudy, Carol McArthur, Mitchell Schaffer, David Kayfman,and other special guests TBA. Hosted by Marty Barrett.

Recommended donation: $10

Show begins at 7 p.m.

Sunday Service: Why Are You A UU?
Congregation Leader: Ann Kleinsasser


“This feels like home” is the comment we often hear from people visiting our church for the first time.  Although we come from many different spiritual and religious backgrounds, something about Unitarian Universalism draws us together and inspires us.  Today we hear from several members of the congregation about their spiritual journeys and how those journeys brought them here.

UUVerdugo Succumbs to Unitarian Chic for Stewardship Kickoff

While UUs tend to be an understated group of people, mild-manneredly keeping to themselves and not being ostentatious, sometimes the market requires them to put on the dog and be swankly in order to kick the annual fund drive into gear.

Here we see UUVerdugans in their Friendship Hall—normally the low-key preserve of powerful, urn-based coffee and potluck macaroni salad—chowing down on food not made by themselves or a family member.

As you can see, we wanted our first blog post to be something shocking.

That's our beloved 93-years-young Deane Phinney giving a pitch. I hope we went her home with some extra ravioli.

Special thanks to the team of Ann Kleinsasser, Florence Chase, and Linda Hunt for organzing the luncheon.
