NEW T-COIL HEARING LOOP HAS BEEN INSTALLED!
A new “T-coil hearing loop” hearing assistance system has been installed in the sanctuary. It will allow most hearing aids to pick up the audio of the service directly rather than through the public address speakers. KUUC is delighted to have this system in place for return to 2016-17 services on September 11. Many thanks to KUUC member, David Wilbur for his installation knowledge and hard work!
Slice of Fellowship and Lunch Bunch WILL RESUME IN OCTOBER. These opportunities to gather together in fellowship are among the best things we do: sharing Food, Fellowship and good Fun! Check the September Messenger for details!
STARR MEMORIAL GARDEN DEDICATION SEPTEMBER 18
On Sunday, September 18, the Keene Unitarian Universalist Church (KUUC) will hold its annual dedication of the Starr Memorial Garden. The ceremony will be held after the morning service at 11:30 in the Garden, located by following the path from 69 Washington Street that leads behind the church sanctuary.
The purpose of the Garden is to be a contemplative sacred space, exhibiting kindness, compassion and love to all who seek solace. It was originally dedicated on the corner of Spruce and Carroll Streets in September 2000, in memory of individuals who died from AIDS and the medical and spiritual caregivers who made a difference in their lives.
In 2007 the Garden was moved to the grounds of the KUUC and the name was changed to the Starr Memorial Garden, honoring Unitarian Minister Deane Starr who died from AIDS on November 6, 1996. His son, Paul, died from AIDS in 1992.
Cobblestones to be dedicated include longtime KUUC members Anne and Roy Piper, Tim and Talu Robertson, Nancy Mellish and in memoriam, Marjorie Nims.
To include recognition of your loved one, email engraving text no later than September 9 to firstname.lastname@example.org. An inscription is 3 lines and 36 characters including spaces. Suggested donation of $50; sliding scale begins at $35. Make checks payable to KUUC and mail to 69 Washington Street, Keene NH 03431.
The Keene Unitarian Universalist Church is a welcoming congregation that has served the Keene community since 1824. For more information, call 603-352-1719 or email email@example.com .
