First Sunday of the Month Potluck!
Bring a dish to pass, or bring just your appetite. Not everyone brings a dish every time, but everyone is encouraged to enjoy the food and fellowship.
BUUF through the Green Sanctuary Team has agreed to provide volunteers to assist with the Fresh Start Children’s Garden in Benton Harbor. The neighborhood children’s garden, has been led by Emma Kinnard for more than 10 years. The garden is located at the corner of May and Pearl Streets in Benton Harbor (1104 Pearl Street). The garden has been cleared of last years material. Volunteers are needed to dig some paths and lay out the plots of vegetable rows. Come for 5 minutes or come for an hour, but come help create the 2017 Fresh Start Children’s garden. Come and visit even if you are not able to assist. If you would like to help or visit another time contact Harvey at 269-470-1470. He has a key.

Please join us at BUUF for a potluck brunch on Wednesday, July 12, from 11 AM to 1 PM, when we’ll ponder the question: “Doesn’t everyone deserve a chance at a good life?” This TEDTalk is described as follows: “Aspirations are rising as never before across the world, thanks in large part to smartphones and the internet — will they be met with opportunity or frustration? As President of the World Bank Group, Jim Yong Kim wants to end extreme poverty and boost shared prosperity. He shares how the institution is working to improve the health and financial futures of people in the poorest countries by boosting investment and de-risking development.”
