One of our proudest choices for an outgoing tithe this year was when UATL sponsored an essay contest in May for South Lake Tahoe High School students, each grade’s winner (9-12) receiving $500. The essay’s theme was, “How I make a difference”, and it was difficult to choose the winning essays.
Here are the winning essays...we think you'll agree they did a fabulous job!
HAWAII RAFFLE: We are selling 100 raffle tickets for $75 each, the winner receiving 1-week’s stay in an ocean view condo in Kihei, Maui, plus $1500 in cash!! Get your tickets soon, either on Sundays or by contacting the office, because these will sell out! Tell your friends...the condo can accommodate a family of 4 or 2 couples (though there’s only 1 bedroom [upstairs] with a door). The winner will be announced at our Murder Mystery event on November 16th (more info on that below). This is our big fun(d)raiser & for that we count on selling out, with your help. Please tell your friends & share the Facebook Post about it from Unity at the Lake’s page. Make sure everyone knows they need not be present to win & they need not even live in town, (although of course we’d love it to be one our “own”).
**Guest speakers! On October 21st, our very own Music Minister, John Eldridge, will be sharing his warmth and wisdom (as well as his music), speaking on, “Good Grief.” In case you didn’t know, John has begun his studies to become a Unity Minister!
On October 28th, the wonderful Rev. Lucie King returns and will speak on, “Thank you for being who you are” (Please note: Masankho Banda, originally scheduled for this day, had to cancel)
UATL NOVEMBER EVENTS:
MURDER MYSTERY EVENING/HARVESTING OUR DREAMS: Our annual autumn celebration and fun(d)raiser, Friday night, November 16th in the Sanctuary.

We all enjoy Hospitality as part of our Sunday Celebration. It's so nice to stay afterward and bask in the glow of the talk and music with everyone. It's even more enjoyable when there's some yummy food. We do our best to maintain a minimum selection (which is what you'll find in most Unity centers). Beyond that it's up to each of us to make it even more special. Please consider bringing some left-overs, or anything else, once in a while
An Invitation to Share Hospitality
Hospitality: It ’ s up to all of us ... if we each brought a “ little left - over ” that is in the fridge, we ’ d have a feast! AND IF WE EACH BROUGHT A LITTLE REAL FOOD, AND LESS SUGARY STUFF, OUR BODIES WOULD BE SOOOOO HAPPY, OUR CHILDREN WOULD GREATLY BENEFIT, AND THEIR PARENTS WOULD BE SO GRATEFUL, TOO!!!!!!
HEALING HAND TO MOTHER EARTH **Warm up your engine & car interior by driving instead of idling – changes in technology & electronic fuel injection have eliminated the need to warm up before driving in freezing temps
**Turn off your car ignition if you ’ re idling for more than 10 seconds - idling your car for more than 10 seconds burns more fuel than restarting your car. Turning off your engine to text, to wait for someone or when stopped for construction are easy ways to stop spewing smog/environment - killing carbon & nitrous dioxide & help the planet as well as our beloved Lake Tahoe
**If you have school - age children, ask the principal to enforce a no - idling policy for buses & cars waiting for school to be let out
YEP LEADERS NEEDED! If it is to be, it’s up to us: Now Seeking Youth Empowerment Program (YEP) leaders for our Sunday programs, so we can keep our program alive. You don’t need special skills, just a desire to celebrate/honor/have fun with our children. We have tons of resources & program ideas available, & we can help you get started. You can commit to leading programs as much or as little as you’d like. If you are interested, please contact Laura Staman ASAP at firstname.lastname@example.org, 530-307-3647, or talk to her at Celebration on Sundays
We have a recycling tub outside of the Sanctuary, when we’re there, for you to drop off your glass, jars and cans. Or just leave your bag on the deck. Especially preferred are glass that is a “moneymaker” such as beer bottles and soda cans (California CRV). We would appreciate that these are deposited in the bins empty and clean. If you bring your own stuff to the recycling center, please consider putting the proceeds on Unity at the Lake’s account there.
