Happy New Year! Have you made any resolutions yet? Our UUCVH Board is way ahead of the game on this front. At our retreat back in August we updated a “vision” and “strategic plan” of things we would like to work toward or accomplish this year. I’d like to summarize and share these goals with you here and invite your comments and feedback.
During 2014-2015 the UUCVH Board would like to:
- Be welcoming—see growth in membership
- Be progressive
- Be committed to social justice
- Be active in the local community
- Be visible
- Be strongly supported by a large and healthy congregation
- Have strong and vital Religious Education for all ages
How do we plan to accomplish these goals? Several steps have been taken already! You may have noticed our new banner hanging outside to make us more visible to our neighbors and passersby. Also, take a look at the religion page of the Crescenta Valley Weekly to see our ad. With Terresa’s help we are increasing our presence on social media. We are looking into ways to increase our presence at community events, and working to find outside speakers other than Sunday mornings on political and social justice topics. And we have hired Elizabeth Brown who is energetically and capably creating a vital RE program for our youngest members.
Please share your comments and ideas with me or any member of our UUCVH Board: Linda Hunt, Vice President—Cindy Lopez, Secretary—Gary Clark, Treasurer—Pat Berberian, Trustee—Celia Eiben, Trustee—Howard Richman, Trustee. We look forward to hearing from you!
