At Sunday’s Special Congregational Meeting, Lynn Holbein and Richard Bail presented an invitation to FUUSN from the Newton Refugee Immigration Ministry to join a cluster of churches and synagogues assisting asylum seekers.
The Board is happy to announce that Lynn has received 35 signatures from FUUSN volunteers, including four people who have offered housing. This success will move our society into active work on behalf of refugees.
The Board will vote its final approval of the program on October 10th at our next Board meeting.
A follow up meeting with volunteers to plan next steps will take place Sunday, October 29, at 11:45 a.m. in the Alliance Room. Please let Lynn (email@example.com) know if you need childcare, which will be available. -Cathy Morocco, Chair of the Board of Trustees
