Women’s Alliance Pie Sale  November 18 Each pie is $10 PIE!! You NEED these for the Holidays!  Mostly home-made and all delicious.  We will start selling pies after the service, at about noon in the social hall.  NO early sales - we sold out before we opened a few years ago, and that is just too disappointing. 

Poinsettias for Vespers (order November 18-December 2) It is the tradition to decorate the Sanctuary with Poinsettias for Vespers Worship Service on December 24th. The Aesthetics Team does this with your help!  We offer you the opportunity to purchase a poinsettia(s) to honor, in memory, or give thanks someone or some group. Your words will be printed in the Vespers Order of Service.  After Vespers you may take your poinsettia(s) home with you to enjoy. 

Orders may be made in person or by calling or sending your order.  The Aesthetics Team will have a table in the Social Hall to take your order(s) and payment (each poinsettia is $15.00) on Sundays after the Sunday Worship Service on November 18, 25, and December 2.  All orders must be at First U by December 2. You may mail your order to Barbara Creasy, Office Administrator, First Unitarian, 809 S. Fourth St., Louisville, KY 40203. Please make checks to First Unitarian.  Please write neatly as we don’t want a mistake on your loved ones’ name. Any questions please contact Kathy Thackeray or Bev Daly of the Aesthetics Team.  

Calling All Santa’s Helpers! Holiday Assistance for Coleridge-Taylor Families November 18 – December 9 During the upcoming holiday season, we are again reaching out to our neighbors at Coleridge-Taylor Montessori Elementary School, located at 1115 W. Chestnut Street.  Coleridge-Taylor’s student population is a mix of children from all parts of the Louisville metro area who are in preschool through grade five. More than 600 students are eligible for free or reduced lunch prices due to low family income. 

If you would like to play Santa’s Helper and “adopt” a family or child by providing a toy and clothing gift for the holiday season, we will begin assigning students to their “Secret Santa” after church on Sunday, November 18. Gifts may be returned to church by Sunday, December 9 for delivery to Coleridge-Taylor.  We’ll also be collecting gift cards, in any amount, to be given to the families.  Contact Mary Ballard with any questions: ballardmb2 [at] bellsouth.net or (502)594-9347.  Thanks!
