SUMMER FUN!
A HOOTENANNY/JAM SESSION
MONDAY 
JOBSEEKER BUDDY GROUP
Theresa Howe, Tom Neel, Ed Yee, 9:30-11am, Library

The jobseeker buddy group is a support group for people that are looking for a new job or to transition into a different job. We typically go around the room and review the activities from the prior week, provide support and ideas for what could be done in our respective job searches, provide each other with referrals, tips, resume critiques, etc. It is a great way to keep the momentum up during a job search and relate to others in a similar situation.
MEDITATION
James Hencke, 8-9 p.m., Library

In meditation practice, we allow ourselves to dwell in the present moment. We find that by developing our awareness and compassion we can open ourselves, relax into situations, and enjoy our life!

WEDNESDAY

FIRST CHURCH BOOK GROUP POTLUCK SUPPER
Karl Klasson and Anne Stuart
Wednesday, June 24, 7pm, Upper Hall
The Book Group will be hosting its Fourth Annual Potluck Supper on June 24 at 7 p.m., when we will enjoy summer salads and desserts, talk about books, and plan for the coming year.
Please feel free to come (and bring a friend)–even if you have not participated in the group during the past church year. All are welcome. Please bring a salad, cold entree, or dessert.

SUMMER FUN!
A HOOTENANNY/JAM SESSION
Led by Jon Svetkey
Thursday, August 6, 7:30pm, Parish Hall
Are you a closet guitar hero with no band?
A great shower singer? Have you ever wanted to just sit around the porch with a bunch of friends singing and strumming songs that you (mostly!) know? Then we’ve got just the thing for you: a good old fashioned hootenanny!
Bring along your portable acoustic instrument (i.e., guitar, mandolin, banjo, harmonica, shaker, suitcase, jaw harp, spoons…), your voice and — most of all — your enthusiasm.
All levels encouraged!

Moonshine not provided. For more information contact jsvetkey@uubelmont.org.
