Tend the Spark, Carry the Flame


Tend the Spark, Carry the Flame


By Maggie Bowden

Our 2021/22 Annual Canvass Pledge Drive has ended. And what an end it is! 92% of our pledge units caused us to reach 98+% of our financial goals. Well done, members of the UUCT!

A Canvass Pledge requires many, many volunteers to be successful. This year we had 24 people (+ me) working directly on the Canvass – this is almost 15% of our total congregation. This is a remarkable number of people. Each of these dedicated volunteers worked diligently throughout the three months of the drive. I would like to name and thank each person for their time and effort.
Here are our pledge drive heroes:

  • Canvass Committee and Team Coaches – Ev Anderson, Jennifer Carver, Carolyn Dubard, William Levwood, Annette Pearce, and Debby Tipton
  • Team Captains – Bonnie Abellera, Sally Anderson, Warren Brackman, Maggie Cass, Kay Cleary, Elinor Elfner, Erika Frisby, Deborah Holt, Teri Martin, Tom Moore, Linda Oaksford, Rod Oldenberg, Kay Stuart-Tilley, Joanne Taylor, and Janet Temkin
  • Graphic Designer and Advisor – Sam Edwards
  • Member Status Advisor – Trudy Deyle
  • Technical Support and Chief Cheerleader – Adriane Pitt
