1.6 As part of our beloved community, ensure that the
practical activities of daily living of all members
from busy families to aged and infirm members
are thoughtfully considered to make life better and
encourage fellowship and better participation
1.6.1 Develop ride-sharing strategies by creating a “Know your Neighbor” program to facilitate carpooling
of members in same zip code/neighborhood, increase opportunities to build relationships within the
congregation, improve our carbon footprint, and especially to offer rides to members with mobility
limitations or who are not comfortable with night driving.
1.6.2 Consider having multiple “First Fridays or Saturdays” and Circle Dinner social get togethers,
by carpool zone, specifically inviting new members. This will alleviate current problem of needing
homes large enough to host and have neighborhood parking for a single event for the entire congregation.
1.6.3 Develop of network of volunteer service providers, e.g., handymen or women, computer repair, housework,
gardening, errand and airport drivers, who will do work for other members and friends on free or
reduced-charge basis, or in exchange for a donation to UUCGN.
1.6.4 Create a services-themed fund-raising event for the Oct./Nov. timeframe that would focus on providing a
variety of services, meals, and activities. Include items which potentially are pre-set priced (no bid up)
to make the services more broadly affordable.
