This year Claudia Ansel, Cheryl Ritch, Jefferson Westwood and Russ Boisjoly have generously shared and executed the duties of treasurer for our congregation. Our Leadership Development team has approached many people, but has not succeeded yet in filling this position. The slate of candidates for next year’s board is filling wonderfully with committed and competent folks agreeing to serve in other positions, but the treasurer position remains empty.
Jefferson is more than willing to train and assist as well as to continue the basic bookkeeping work he is doing now. We’ve talked about the possibility of hiring a person for this position, but the work that remains is oversight work that really needs to be handled by a member of the congregation. The duties of the treasurer are outlined under the Governance tab above.
If you are willing to consider filling this vital position, please contact Leanna McMahon of the Leadership Development Committee.
Grow a row for those in need! As you plan your garden this year think about putting in an extra row to share with the Friendly Kitchen!

- Green Beans

(Listed in approximate order of ripening) Chautauqua County Rural Ministry receives most contributions during peak producing season, so items grown for a very early or late harvest are very much appreciated.
Zucchini and Tomatoes are plentiful when in season, although CCRM would probably welcome those as well and would give away what isn’t used.
Now is the time to order seeds and start plants!
For more information, speak with Carol Somers. Thank you!
Thanks to Jim Wilmoth for this wonderful idea — a great way for the gardeners of UUCNC to help local community members in need this summer!

Please donate your deposit cans and bottles!
The Youth Group reminds the congregation that the donation of your deposit cans and bottles is greatly appreciated! Colleen, the owner of Cash for Cans (on Route 60 in just north of Route 83; driving from Rte. 20 it is housed in a large garage with a bright green roof on the left) has generously offered to continue keeping a tab for us for this ongoing fundraiser. Call ahead to check when they’ll be open: 716 672-2274.
All you need to do is drop off your deposit cans and bottles when you are out running errands. If you ever have trouble getting there or need help with a large accumulation, members of the Youth Group will pick up your contribution.
Every little bit helps! In 2011 we raised just over $150 in four months for our trip to Boston, and we are well on our way raising money for our activities for this year. Thank you for your support!
