This committee represents the Fellowship and reports our endeavors and plans in larger UU organizations, including the Metro Denver UU Council, the UU Mountain Desert District, and the Unitarian Universalist Association. We coordinate activities between these organizations and the Fellowship.
Through the Chalice Lighters, the Fellowship is able to support appeals issued by way of the Mountain Desert District Extension Committee. These appeals help promote growth in UU congregations around the district by meeting special financial needs. Our local representative supports Chalice Lighters by recruiting new members from the Fellowship. Special Note: Our Fellowship was chosen as the recipient of one of the 2004 calls! In the fall of 2004 we received approximately $8,000 — $10,000 to help pay for remodeling costs at our new home, specifically the RE workroom area with sink and the handicap accessible bathroom.
