Folksinger George Mann Performs at UUFSB

Saturday, November 1, 7:30 p.m.

GeorgeMannFolksinger and producer George Mann will be giving a concert at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Stony Brook at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 1. A SUNY Stony Brook graduate and former leader of the Graduate Student Employees Union, George Mann sings songs from the last century of labor and social activism, and his own songs are powerful and funny takes on the state of the nation. His concerts are part sing-along, part history lesson, and he can make you shout for joy, send chills down your spine or bring tears to your eyes in the same set.

George created and produced the “Hail to the Thief!” CD series, which featured such folk legends as Tom Paxton, Utah Phillips, Billy Bragg and Magpie, and his work with veterans, unions and anti-war groups has kept him on the front lines for more than 20 years. In 2010, George produced a compilation CD, “Until You Come Home: Songs for Veterans and their Kin,” that addressed the issue of PTSD and the effects of war on those who fight them. His newest CD, “The Almanac Trail” celebrates the labor songs of Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie. More info at

Come on down for a great night of music, fun, and community! This event is suitable for all ages. Doors open at 7:00 p.m.; suggested donation is $10, but all are welcome and no one turned away for lack of funds!

UUFSB Official Logos and Templates

It's important that the Fellowship presents a consistent image to the public.  For that reason, the Communciations Committee asks that you use the logos and templates shown below.  If you are unsure how to use these, please contact the Communications Committee for help.  Thank you.  

For logos, if you are using the logo in a small size, it's better to download one of the small versions below.  They will make your files smaller and may print and display better than one of the larger verions reduced.  72 dots per inch (dpi) versions are good for web and email use.  For high quality printing, the 150 dpi or 300 dpi versions are better.  They make for larger files, however.

Summer 2013 Fellowship Help

Healthy Happy Summer to All: AND If You Need Fellowship Help, Here's How To Get It:
I am writing from Louisville, KY, the site of this year's UU Association General Assembly, to remind you about the protocol for getting pastoral emergency care while I am afield working, resting and putting together and new congregational year for us.
In case of personal emergency (shocking news, sudden loss, medical emergency, death in your web of loved ones, for instance), call Maureen Shaiman and/or Linda Kirk (find contact information below). Our congregational Administrator, Susan Catanzaro, can also assist you during office hours, 10:30-4:00 M-F. Your contact will listen to what is going on for you and the two of you will decide about next steps.
Our very skilled Pastoral Assistants can handle most situations and can rally others in the congregation if many hands would help. If it is determined that a minister's counsel or presence is needed, the person you contact will get in touch with me and let me know what is going on. Then I will talk with you. That is how it will work when I am on study leave (see my schedule below). When I am on vacation, a Long Island UU minister will be on-call and respond if needed. Same process, just a different (competent and kind) minister calling you at the end.
Remember: any of the Pastoral Assistants would be happy to help you with non-emergency pastoral needs as well.  If you just need someone to be present to what is going on for you, to help you think something through, find some resources or information, or even if all you need is a little company, give one of them a call.
I will be watching my email, folks, so feel free to keep me in the loop. Take good care of one another, everyone!
Rev. Margie
