You can find a list of Summer Sunday School topics online here. The last two weeks have seen between 12 and 16 children at Summer Sunday School. If you’re in town, come join the fun.

4. All Church BBQ

Edie Keating, member of the Children and Youth Religious Education Committee, sends this note:

We have a great all church party planned on Sunday, July 15 — we hope you can all attend, and we hope you sign up soon!

Location: By the pool at Carleen Whittelsey’s house! Carleen is a UUCPA member, and offered to invite ALL of us over to spend a relaxing afternoon in her backyard, including a chance to jump in her pool. It is about a 20 minute drive from UUCPA to Carleen’s, taking 280 to Woodside Road, and then heading west up Woodside road for about another mile. Church is out at 11:30, so have a cup of coffee, and then head out to Carleen’s.

Our Menu: 12:30 Lunch is served — BBQ chicken, hot dogs, veggie burgers, picnic salads, sides and munchies. Your choice of wine beer or lemonade. At 3:00 we’ll serve ice cream, and a selection of baked cakes and cookies from Susan Plass’s kitchen. By 4:00, we’ll be well fed and ready to head home.

Suggested Donation: We are asking a $10 contribution from adults and a $5 contribution for children. Around 40 of you have already paid for this event at the silent auction — and the more the merrier! Like all silent auction events, this is a fund raiser — so the hosts are donating the food and drink, and your contribution is a contribution directly to UUCPA. So you are funding UUCPA, and having fun! And if the contribution amount presents an issue, talk to us — we want you to come.

Do I Need to Reserve in Advance?: YES! We want to have plenty of food and drink without guessing. So you need to sign up at church, or by replying to Edie via email, or by calling the office at 650-494-0541, in the next two weeks (by Sunday July 8).

Pony Rides?: Yes — for those 12 or under. The young at heart are welcome to watch. Carleen will offer short walks on her pony from 2:00 to 3:00.

Questions?: We’ll have a signup table at UUCPA on July 1 and July 8. We’ll also have a list of people who either need a ride or can offer a ride. We’ll get more exact driving directions out to those who register to come. Hope you can join us!

Your Hosts: Edie Keating, Tom and Pat Thomas, Carleen Whittelsey.
