Thank you to Mary Anne Trause for organizing a wonderful Welcome Celebration for Rev. Perchlik on August 14. I admit that I did not want to “come to church again” on that beautiful August, Sunday evening, but I left feeling extremely glad that I had. The guest speakers not only welcomed Rev. Perchlik into our liberal greater community but spoke highly of OUUC’s past and future. The final “flash mob” song orchestrated by Troy and the choir, moved me to tears. And the beautiful food served indoors and out was a lovely finish. Thanks again to all those who helped make that evening special. I left filled with pride to be a Unitarian but especially a member of OUUC.
