All contributions made to UUCF should be clearly noted what they are intended for.  If an unmarked contribution is received and there is a pledge-of-record for that fiscal year, the amount will be applied to the pledge.  Any contributions made without proper identification will get listed as a “non-pledge” contribution.  Unfortunately, a note indicating “donation” is not specific enough; we have in the proximity of 180 funds between our different accounts.  Pledge payments should indicate the appropriate fiscal year.  If you are not sure what the fund name is, a note explaining what the money is for is sufficient; Jodi will contact you if additional information is necessary.

Among Us

Shirley Valett would appreciate your thoughts and visits to her home.  Please call her (559) 449-9067 prior to visiting.

Our thoughts and prayers are with James McLelland and his family.  James is undergoing an inpatient feeding program that will hopefully teach him how to eat and swallow (he is currently tube fed).   This is taking place at Children’s Hospital Orange County for the rest of the month.

Rachelle and Johnny Ramirez and big brother George welcomed a new member to their family on July 7, baby Andrew Kristoff Ramirez. Mom, Rachelle is doing well, but Andrew is in need of some extra care and is spending a few days in Neonatal Intensive Care. The Ramirez family is new to our church. They would appreciate cards of congratulations and best wishes for Andrew. Their address is 10823 N. Knowlton Way, Fresno CA 93730.

Please accept our heartfelt thanks for the help the church has given us following my accident. Your cards, calls, and visits were comforting. The delicious meals prepared by members, some crossing generational lines and by others we hadn’t met attested to the love and strength of our Fresno Unitarian Universalist family.   Connie and Jack Pitt
