UUC Sunday Service - 11pm - April 27: Pianfetti Poetry Sunday

In honor of long-time UUC member and poetry-lover Lucille Pianfetti, we close out National Poetry Month by sharing poems and the importance of poetry in expressing what is going on in our lives. We have Haiku Poetry written by Lucille. We are looking for poems you have written or ones that are especially meaningful to you that you would like to share. In keeping with the theme of concern for our earth, we encourage you to share poems with a nature or earth-centered theme. If you would like to share a poem (yours or someone else’s), please get in touch with us (

Stay after the service for our annual May Day dancing of the Maypole and picnic.
