2. UUCM CONNECT E-MAILS: (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. )

Sign up for this list by contacting the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . This list allows UUCM members to sell, give, buy or trade goods or services or make referrals. Since email addresses are voluntarily submitted, list members are free to use it to announce these outside activities in which they are involved, such as birding, hiking, theater and museum visits, etc. We encourage you to sign up, but please use good judgment in using this list. We don’t send jokes or political opinions.

UUCM Connect emails are sent as items are submitted, attempting to combine them into one issue a week, rather than several throughout the week.
