We honor Members, Friends, and Visitors
Our Thoughts and Good Wishes continue to be with:
Laurie Duncan-McWethy, who is at home from the hospital, but is still facing treatment with an anti-biotic “drip” for up to six weeks. This was due to complications from her previous shoulder surgery. She is positive that no further surgery will be needed. Paula Baase is doing great, and and is walking, with only a cane, as she recovers from bilateral knee replacement. Please also keep Tom & Sally Rickert, and Vic & Ruth Barnard in your thoughts, as they face new challenges in their lives.
#Congratulations, Good Luck, Blessings, and Thanks to: Jonathan & Hayden Williamson who finally sold their home, in preparation for their move to Maine. We wish our friends nothing but the best of everything — we will miss all that they have given to UUCB as they head off to a new life, with others in their caring family, and a new UU community. The Colorado Legislature for finally passing the ASSETS bill, making everyone graduating from our public school system eligible for in-state tuition. This is only fair! Members of our community have worked hard for this, and also for the passage of the Civil Unions initiative, which also passed. Justice is beginning to change its shape in our state — but there is still more work to be done!
The Ninth Grade Trip Cake Auction on March 17th was a “rousing success”! Our community contributed over $2500 to this special program for our youth. This year will be the 51st running of this “coming of age” event. The success was achieved through the efforts of Anne McMullen, John Ireland, Debbie & Jeff Davis, and of course everyone who donated baked goods, and who bid upon them. Can’t forget Grace Ireland our “tripper” for this year, and Bill Belew the auctioneer.
#Random Thoughts: Probably more than you ever wanted to know, but I need to clarify something for the record. Since my recent wrist surgery (which is recovering nicely) several people have commented that Fred “owes” me, since I helped him with his recovery from his hip replacement last year. Nothing could be further from the truth, indeed it is I who “owe” him. Last year is the first time he has ever been in hospital, since he was born. On the other hand, he has seen me through a hysterectomy, a kidney stone that landed me in ICU, a knee replacement, and finally this wrist thing. I will never be able to catch up to the very best care giving I have ever received! Also do not forget the four years of almost daily visits to my Mom before she died. A nurse at Boulder Manor once said, “We can’t believe he is a son-in-law — most sons are not as attentive.” Fred’s kind and loving care, plus my being of “hearty pheasant stock” (his term for Moi) is the reason I am. Do not, for a minute, fall for his curmudgeonly exterior! Fred, thank you for being YOU!
