By Grechen Wingerter, President of the board of trustees
As most of you know by now, the Board of Trustees, with the guidance and support of the Re-Opening Committee, has voted to re-open the doors of Westside for in-person services on Sundays. I am extremely grateful to all those involved in making this happen. A great deal of time, thought, and effort has been put in by so many people as we have paved the long road to re-opening. I am thankful to be part of a community at Westside that takes the needs of the greater good into consideration in the decision-making process. It can be an arduous task to get a group of UUs to reach a consensus, but we have done it. Huzzah!
This time of year is often challenging for many people. Holiday stress. So much to do and plan, family gatherings, menus, travel, shopping. People. Places. Things. Stress. Stress. Stress. One less thing to stress — we will gather together again soon. I look forward to seeing everyone in person!!
