Because our new fiscal year began on July 1st, the Finance Committee would like to remind you to submit any outstanding reimbursement requests from the 2019-20 fiscal year as soon as possible. We will close out and finalize the 2019-20 fiscal year on July 31, and no checks will be written for these expenses after this. For questions, please contact Alicia at finance@uuchnc.org. Thanks.

UUCH Group for People Living Alone

People living alone are in a unique circumstance in this current pandemic situation.  If you are interested in gathering socially with other UUCH people living alone at this time of social distancing, contact Lorri Drozdyk at lorripeacetoyou@gmail.com.  We meet every Monday at 12:30 in person at UUCH (Memorial Garden or other UUCH location suitable for the attendees) while practicing good social distancing (6 feet minimum, and bring your own chair, lunch, etc).  If rain is forecasted, we meet by zoom.

The 2020  absentee ballot request form is now available from the Orange County (NC) Board of Elections website. Click here.   Because we do not know what the COVID-19 situation will be in November you may want to request an absentee ballot.  Requesting the ballot but deciding to vote in person is acceptable.  Submitting the ballot AND voting on election day is NOT acceptable.  Contact Aimee Tattersall with any questions.  She probably will not know the answer but may be able to find out.

Covering COVID-19, and the coming weeks:

Your support and understanding is greatly appreciated as we navigate this situation.  Your / our health and well-being are of primary concern, and we want to reiterate the recommended key actions from the CDC that will help limit the spread of COVID-19:

  • Wear a mask when in the presence of others / outside the home.
  • Frequently wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your face, mouth, and nose.
  • Avoid close contact with anyone who is sick.
  • Put about six feet of distance between yourself and other people, if you need to be out.
  • Stay home!  The best way to minimize the overloads at hospitals and clinics is to stay at home and avoid physical contact with others.
