Pete Seeger Songfest - Jim Scott Remembers Pete In Song Sunday July 17th at 6:30pm
Come join us for our first fundraising event for the fiscal year!
We’ll honor Pete Seeger, singing many of his well-loved songs such as If I Had a Hammer, Turn, Turn, Turn, Where Have All the Flowers Gone and many others. All interested singers welcome, no experience necessary. Led by composer/guitarist Jim Scott, who knew Pete well and collaborated on many projects with the folk legend, we'll raise our voices for the causes Pete championed and remember the great contributions to our American heritage Pete made in his 94 years of life. We have lost an icon, but not his legacy of poetry and song to guide and inspire us.
Sunday July 17th at 6:30pm in the Church Sanctuary
$15.00 per person

Jim Scott brings a warmth, and authenticity that turns any size audience into an intimate gathering. His lyrical melodies, well-crafted words, guitar mastery and humorous surprises moved Pete Seeger to call him “Some kind of a magician.” Known to many as guitarist with the Paul Winter Consort and co-composer of their celebrated "Missa Gaia / Earth Mass," Jim is a prolific composer in his own right. Jim's visited more than 700 UU churches over three decades of travels. His much loved "Gather the Spirit" and other songs are in the UU hymnbooks. He has also become a student of the movement for peace and justice in song, compiling and arranging the "Earth and Spirit Songbook," a collection of over 110 songs of earth and peace by many contemporary composers, including Pete Seeger. www.JimScottMusic.com
LFS Backpack Drive-
For those of you who aren’t aware, the Lutheran Family Services Refugee & Asylee Program office is a ½ block from our UU church and has been using classroom space at the church for job readiness classes on Tuesdays and Wednesday afternoons. The UU church of Greeley has also participated in a winter attire drive last winter and helped Sarah Gostenik provide baby carriers to refugees in Greece this last March. Now, gearing up for the upcoming school year, LFS is hosting a backpack drive for refugee and foster care students in our area. If you’d like to participate, please see the flyer on the bulletin board in the foyer for details and you can drop off at the LFS office (1502 9th Ave) by July 22nd, or contact Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also contact Sarah if you have an interest in volunteering with LFS or learning more about refugee issues. Thank you for supporting our refugees from Somalia, Burma, Cuba and Eritrea and making them feel welcome in Greeley as they work towards self-sufficiency!
