How to Motivate People to Productive Action - Monday, April 28, 7:00-9:00 p.m.

Whether you want people to attend your Fellowship meeting, come to your event, fill out a form, volunteer, or simply follow directions, effective communications is key. That’s why the next in our series of Leadership Development Training Workshops will be on “Communicating Effectively.” Led by members of the Communications Committee, this interactive workshop will provide hands-on training, and will be valuable to anyone leading a UUFSB committee/group or planning an event/other activities. All are welcome. Council members should find this session especially useful. Subjects include:

  • How to motivate people to come to your Fellowship meeting or event. Techniques and resources.
    Small group activity: Work as a team to promote an event.
  • How to reach out, educate, and inform using our Fellowship electronic media: website, newsletter, emails, Facebook, etc. Real-time training: Editing your own committee website pages. Bring your laptop if you would like to participate. (We can work in pairs.)
  • How the Communications Committee can make your communications efforts easier.

As sure a sign of spring as the robin or crocus, the May CommUUnity Tag Sale is nearly upon us. Now in its 5th year, we are looking forward to welcoming buyers and sellers into our space, our warmth and our friendly community. The CommUUnity Tag Sale is, at heart, a mission to unite people who have used clothing and household items in good condition with people who need those items and may not be able to afford to buy them new. We rent our parking lot spaces to individuals who want to be part of a giant garage sale. We sell simple refreshments (water is free!), and have our own space selling items donated by UU's. At the May Sale, we are also accepting books.

Special Note: Getting out the news about the Tag Sale is critical. Please click here to download our flyer. Print it out and post it at your local convenience store or office bulletin board. Thank you!

There are dozens of tasks, large and small, that make up this experience. Helping out is a lot of fun and a great way to demonstrate our hospitality! Questions? Want to help?
