In 2014, UUFA Celebrated Its Diamond JUUbilee!

 

Logo Juubilee 1954! It was the mid 20th century when the Fellowship got its start. The 60th Anniversary was celebrated throughout 2014 with remembrances of the founders and a look forward to further realize our UU principles.

Among the online highlights is an inventory of the Fellowship’s revered objects and a description of how they came to be. The 60th Anniversary committee developed a 2014 calendar filled with activities at the Fellowship and beyond. After the January celebration launch, we featured:
