Diamond JUUbilee Celebration Looks Back, Moves Forward

By Susan Curtis

During our 60th Anniversary year, we celebrated our founders, our lifespan religious education, our social action and justice work, our music program, our practice of spiritual arts, our members and leaders, and our building and grounds. Many of us won’t soon forget the founders and early members forum, our retreat to The Mountain, and our joyous November congregational party with Jim Key speaking. In December we looked to UUFA’s future, welcoming comments by members and friends on growing into the next 60 years. Now that the busy holiday season is over, if you didn’t have an opportunity to share your vision for the Fellowship with the committee, please enter it here by January 31, 2015.

Throughout 2014 the 60th Anniversary committee created website posts, Tapestry stories, press releases, video, and displays. It also updated the 50th Anniversary timeline and the collection of member photos. In coming months the committee will work with all these elements to develop a new history to pass on to future members and friends. Plans also call for a collection of mementos from the JUUbilee observance – digital and print materials, messages from children and adults, and more – to be buried in a time capsule during Spring 2015.
