SINKHOLE UPDATE
We remain in communication with Guide One, our insurer, while we work through details of the remediation part of the claim. Our goal is to begin sinkhole repairs and move the needle forward on this key step. As always, we will share details about progress as soon as they are available and thank you for your patience.

To review, estimated time lines are:
Remediation – about 8-10 weeks from start date
Paintings removed from UUCTS Sanctuary – on or before April 20th, the date
previously agreed upon with LRMA

On March 3rd LRMA inventoried, packed and received the general Inness items from the Narthex for use in their exhibit &/or to store for us until we are “back together” sometime in autumn 2014. They are providing this storage
gratis, and it will ensure these items are kept together for the duration of our adventure. All other Inness documentation remains in the Parsonage “living room” on the first floor.

Work on the Forum Room will resume approximately late May or early June.
More information is expected next week.
FORUM RETURNS!
Our Social Justice Council and Don have been making plans to reboot the Forum Discussions interrupted when we vacated the church. (For those who aren’t aware, the Forum is a series of presentations/questions-answers on a variety of topics.) We’ll meet in the Elks Club following the service following the 1st and 3rd Sundays of most months. Don will lead a discussion on UU-related topics on the first Sunday, and Council members will coordinate third-Sunday sessions. 

Our first Forum Discussion is set for April 6, when Don kicks off the “Pamphlet Series” – a format built around excerpts from various denominational views. The May pamphlet is Jack Mendelsohn’s “Meet the Unitarian Universalists”.
