    • Progressive Parenting Group: Meeting times vary. See our Facebook group for details.
    • Wednesday Night Dinners: An opportunity to enjoy some good food in the company of your fellow UUs. Dinner happens at 5:30 most Wednesdays during the school year and one Wednesday per month during the summer; check the calendar or weekly updates for details. The menu is simple and stresses whole foods, with options that should fit a wide variety of diets: vegan, gluten-free, corn-free, paleo, or omnivore. Suggested donation is $5/adult, $3/child, or $10/family; no one is turned away for inability to pay. RSVPs are helpful but not required. Contact Karen Impola for more information.
