BLACK LIVES MATTER BANNER DEDICATION
SATURDAY, JULY 15, 2017
3pm - 6pm
The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Poughkeepsie is honored to invite you to the dedication of our Black Lives Matter banner.
Our decision to display the banner is an act of public witness. Our intention is to keep the spot light on the issue of racism and it's effect on people in this country from slavery to today. We affirm the inherent worth and dignity of all lives, but in a growing culture of "anti-blackness", violence, anger and hate we choose to stand as a beacon of light in an otherwise darkening world.
Please come and join our community at this joyous event! Music and refreshments will accompany the dedication. The celebration will take place on Saturday, July 15, 2017 3-6 pm at UUFP, 67 South Randolph Ave, Poughkeespie, NY.
Call 845-471-6580 for more information or questions.

THE BRIDGE GAME
The Bridge Game started out as a class taught by member Nick Garin, which quickly evolved into a duplicate bridge game twice a month, on the second and fourth Thursday of each month, at 7pm.
The Game is competitive, but not overly strict with rules since there are players with quite different skill levels. There is still a teaching component, so anyone who wants to learn (or re-learn it if they grew up on Goren) and join in is welcome. There are delicious refreshments that seem to appear out of nowhere each time the Game meets, and the company is fantastic.
SECOND FRIDAY DRUMMING WITH HAWKLYN 7PM
Join us! We are quickly growing to be one of the largest drum circles/groups in Upstate NY! We will gather to drum, dance, rattle, & sing! All ages, all welcome, all one!
