Solar Update

Recently, UUCLC members voted overwhelmingly to move forward with the Solar Task Force’s proposal to pursue the use of solar energy at UUCLC.

The vote is only a first – or next – step in the process. There are still details to be finalized and numerous approvals needed before declaring we are in fact going solar.  We are hopeful, but until those final i’s are dotted, t’s crossed, and approvals signed, we will remain cautiously optimistic.

We’re Reinvigorating the Lake County Conservation Council!

UUCLC’s Social Justice and Environment Committee is pleased to report that at least ten of our UU members are helping to re-activate the Lake County Conservation Council (LCCC).  Egor Emery has been re-elected president and Jane Hepting has been elected treasurer.

The LCCC has these purposes: to promote the preservation and protection of the natural resources of Lake County; to enhance awareness of present and potential dangers to the environment; to promote responsible growth management; to cooperate with other conservation and environmental groups; and to advise civic authorities on conservation and environmental matters.  The dues are $10 annually.  Anyone who is interested in joining may contact Jane Hepting at hepting.jane@gmail.com.

We’re Using Zoom!

Since our building is closed until further notice, UUCLC is now using ZOOM to facilitate meetings and services.  If you would like to schedule a ZOOM meeting for your committee or group, please send an email to valzoom84@gmail.com with your name and email address and Val Rosado will send  you a request form.
