Thank you Gloria Holloway!

At the July 9 service, the Board of Trustees honored Gloria Holloway for her decades of music stewardship for this congregation, with diverse concerts that have brought us great joy (and even some revenue). The engraved stone will reside along the periphery of the labyrinth, so we can all enjoy a memory of a concert and a grateful thought of Gloria as we pass by.

Announcement! Congratulations Jae Polcyn

The Betty McCluer Lee award winner for 2017 was Joe Polcyn!  The Unitarian Universalist Church of Tampa is far richer because of what Jae gives to us. She is a fine musician who gives freely of her time and talents for Sunday services, for Religious Exploration, and for the Monday night music group. In addition, she has a strong commitment to social justice. Jae chairs the Social Justice Committee, making sure that our congregation is a visible force in the community. She also has helped to further our congregation’s involvement with HOPE, the Hillsborough Organization for Progress and Equality, believing that there is strength in numbers in trying to establish equality for all in Hillsborough County. Jae is a long-time member of the UUCT and has been instrumental in many other committees and projects of our congregation in the past. Make sure that you take the time to congratulate her for joining the distinguished group of the Betty McCluer Lee award winners!
