A NEW IMMIGRANT FAMILY will be arriving in New Jersey for settlement in mid-august. In coordination with the United Church of Christ and other religious groups, we will be collecting the necessities for setting up a new living space for them; tables, chairs, desks, lamps, dishes, toys, etc. etc. etc. We cannot accept beds or bed frames. These must be purchased new so financial aid is also needed. All donations must be in good condition and clean.  We do not know how many people are in the family or the ages yet. I will be receiving a list of things that are needed shortly. Meanwhile scour your attics, rummage through your basements, check the garage and send me a list of all the things that you can provide.
Thank you, Ira Mendelsberg

Did you know that the USR has a team in the Ridgewood Church Softball League?  The RCSL is a competitive adult slow-pitch softball league with games on Sunday afternoons at 4 or 5:30 PM. Our UU team is looking for players to come join us for a few games (or a season commitment). Games only take about 1:45 minutes so they won’t eat your whole afternoon. Its fun, and you get to be a kid again for 2 hours a week. If you, or a family member/friend/child are a former MLB star (or recall being half decent ballplayer in College/High School/8th grade) and might be interested in helping build the USR’s fledging softball dynasty (or at least field a competitive team), please reach out to Mitch Halvorsen for more information.
