Friday Nov. 28, 2014  7 PM: Native American Heritage Day Concert

Join us at 7 PM for an amazing evening with all Native performers.  

Free admission, however donations welcome and appreciated. Spend your evening in community on this national day of greatest greed.  You will be moved!!

This is the second year that BUF has hosted this event. Last year's concert was wonderful and I fully expect this year's to be even better.

Tuesday Dec. 2, 2014  7 PM: 4th Annual Abundance Swap

Bellingham continues an alternative holiday tradition by offering a community gathering
to celebrate our abundance and offer an alternative to holiday shopping.

People bring 3 - 5 new or gently used gift-like items to give away and go home with 3 - 5 gifts to give for the holidays. Children are encouraged to attend.  Children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult.  You may bring a finger food sweet treat to share.  Participants are responsible for taking home items that are not chosen.

Sponsored by BUF SEJC (Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship's Social & Environmental Justice Committee) and Jill MacIntyre Witt.

Doors open at 6:30 PM and swap is from 7 - 8 PM.
