Kristin and Nathanael R., and Kris T., assisted in preparing and organizing GNUUC materials for the booth.

The weather was perfect, with a lot of visitors to the booth asking about GNUUC and UU’ism, and with conversations with people staffing other organizations’ booths. Our gratitude to all who represented us there, as the Welcoming Community that we are, and as GNUUC, a Unitarian Universalist congregation.
