Brett Maccani is working with OutCenter director Mary Jo Schnell to develop plans for training members of a “speakers bureau” to attend public meetings, such as school boards and city councils, in support of LGBTQ+ persons. Mary Jo will hold a training session with video for interested BUUF members at 11:30 on Wednesday, August 10. The session will be held at BUFF and last 60 to 90 minutes. Lunch will be provided.
Berrien UU Fellowship serves lunch at the Benton Harbor Soup Kitchen the first Saturday of every month. Berrien UU volunteers prepare the meal, greet guests and help clean up the kitchen. This is a terrific opportunity to serve the greater community, support our Social Justice mission and enjoy the company of fellow BUUFers and guests at the kitchen. Rev. Jim McConnell, Harvey Johnson, Diane Gibbons and others generously lead the group in planning the meal and dessert and will gladly find a role for all volunteers, whether they’ve helped dozens of times or this is their first time. Please consider coming to the Soup Kitchen to help, even if it’s only for an hour or two.
The Soup Kitchen is located at 233 Michigan Street in Benton Harbor.
