Harry Potter and UU Classes are taking on the sickness horcrux in the month of March.  There are many ways that we can work together to help children with childhood illnesses. One of those ways is by making sure the people around them are cared for and supported. A few years ago, my cousin’s 2 year old child was diagnosed with leukemia and they had to make many trips out of town for treatment.  They were greatly appreciative of the warm welcome and hospitality they received from Ronald McDonald House, which provides housing, support and resources to keep families near their children who are receiving care in the hospital.  On March 4th, our RE kids will be selling bath salts and soup mixes that they have made in class with the goal of raising $105 to pay for one week of a family’s stay at the Ronald McDonald House in Valhalla, NY, near the Maria Ferrari Children’s Hospital. Please stop by the RE children’s table during coffee hour on March 4th and make a purchase or a donation to help them meet their goal, and to support a family struggling with sickness.


Our youth have also been very active and have a lot to look forward to in the coming months. Thank you to everyone who supported our food sales fundraiser in February.  The funds raised will support our youth participating in the UU-UNO Intergenerational Seminar in April.  In March, the UUCR is proud to be the hosts of a Youth-Adult Committee meeting which brings a group of teens from throughout the district to our space for a daylong event.  Some of our youth will also be leading the service on March 18th.  Thank you to Jane Cowan for her leadership with our senior high youth program this year, which has included a lot of joint programming with the UU Ridgewood/ Paramus youth group! Our junior high youth will also be attending their second youth retreat/  conference of the year on March 24-25.
