Join us! There’s always room for one more and we can’t wait to meet you!
Wednesday Night Dinner
UUFR’s weekly Wednesday Night Dinner is a great way to get to know other Fellowship members and friends and the food is always great! We meet at 6:00 pm most Wednesdays from September through May in Founders Hall.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own plates and utensils (but are welcome to use plates and utensils provided by the Fellowship). Children and families are welcome. A vegetarian option is always available. And you can bring your own beer or wine.
The price for dinner is $10 for age 15 – adults and $5 for children ages 8-15. Children 8 and under eat free. Maximum price for families with children under 15 is $30.
Sign up by 5:00 pm on Monday on the bulletin board in the lower Fellowship Hall foyer or email Fran Wise.
We are testing several new vendors this year as well as many old favorites. The weekly menu is listed in the Chalice and the Sunday Order of Service, as well as on the sign-up sheet located on the WND bulletin board.
