The Verdugo HUUT! Presents: The Horror

7 p.m.

Our celebrated Hootenanny in the Hills brings L.A.'s finest musicians, storytellers, and comedians to our beautiful sanctuary for a night of music and laughs which the L.A. Times recently called "Hilarious!" and "A compelling experience."

This month's theme is THE HORROR: Music, Comedy, And Storytelling covering horrors however our performers interpret them. Scary songs? Ghost stories? Maybe an appearance by La Llorona? We don't know. Anything could happen (and still be family-friendly, of course).

Host Marty Barrett welcomes special guests Maria Alexander, Marisol Barrett, Chris Bonno, Lisa Finnie, and Steve Johnson, for a night of entertainment in our cool sanctuary that is not to be overlooked.

If you are a parent needing a date night, come right in! We have childcare available for a nominal fee, provided by licensed and trained childcare workers. Please contact Elizabeth Brown at least a week beforehand.

Recommended donation: $10

Autumn is here! 

 We are excited to celebrate the changing of the seasons and thinking about the way in which many cultures and religions celebrate the holidays.  Below is a beautiful UU poem about Autumn arriving and the excitement of change… we will be reading this poem and other beautiful literature to our children as we shift into the next season. Meanwhile in the RE program, we have been working on our “7 Principles Book” where the children are welcome to draw, write or think about what the principles mean to them. It has been exciting to hear their ideas and their questions about the UU faith.

I am working closely with the RE committee and Rev. Gordon on our curriculum here at UUCVH! More information to come soon! Wishing everyone a wonderful month filled with warm jackets, warm drinks and the warmth that this season brings!

 Warmly,

Elizabeth S. Brown

RE Coordinator
