Best Wishes to the
A Wedding Reception/Shower for Alison and David will be hosted by the Congregation on Sunday, October 19, from 3 to 6 p.m. It’s an opportunity for all of us to celebrate Alison & David’s marriage and to wish them the very best as they begin their married life together!
It will be a festive event with fun, food and laughter across the ages. Childcare will be provided as well as activities for older children. Plans for the congregationally sponsored event are well under way - headed by event organizers Carol Todd and Karen Burns. We’re looking forward to many people contributing time and efforts to planning, decorating, preparing food, handling day-of-event tasks, etc. It’ll truly be a community event! Contact Carol (email@example.com) or Karen (firstname.lastname@example.org) to see how you can support this wonderful occasion.
Of course, our main purpose is to celebrate Alison & David’s wedding, but we’d also like to “shower” them with gifts as they establish their household together. Some of the ideas we have are:
Contribute treasured recipes, your keys for a happy life together, anecdotes, poems, pictures, etc., to “Recipes for a Happy Life,” a scrapbook that will be created by a team of MUF artists. Please send your submissions to Tina Demottie by e-mail (email@example.com) or leave them in the “Recipes” box on top of the MUF mailboxes by the office. The deadline for submissions is October 5.
Give them a traditional shower gift. Alison & David have registered a range of gifts at nearby stores.
Contribute to a gift fund that has been established for those who want to contribute to a cash gift that would enable Alison and David to purchase something of their own choosing or to add to their “nest egg.” Make checks payable to MUF with “Wedding Gift Fund” on the memo line.
Contribute to a community gift to charitable organizations of Alison and David’s choosing: the Edmund Niles Huyck Preserve (www.huyckpreserve.org) or the UUSC (www.uusc.org), Write checks payable to the nonprofit organization (e.g., UUSC) and mail to MUF (Attn: Shower Gifts).
Mark your calendar now, let Maggie know that you’re coming, and contact us to find out how you can help with the party. It’s going to be a celebration to remember!
