The Choir
Joining the choir is a great way to make connections at our UU Society! We meet at 8:45 a.m. most Sundays, practicing the song or songs we will sing later that morning and learning a new piece or two for future services. Child care is available to allow parents of young children to participate in choir. We have a lot of fun together, sharing laughter and great music!

The Men’s Breakfast Group
This group meets every Wednesday at 7:00 A.M. at Kelly’s Restaurant (314 College Street, Amherst). Contact: Michael Sussman.

The Women’s Lunch Group
This group meets at a different restaurant at noon on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month for spirited conversation over local, inexpensive cuisine. It welcomes every woman, whether she is new to our Society or a longer-time member or friend. It is not necessary to RSVP, but if you have questions, need help finding a ride, or want to be on the e-notification list, contact: Sophie Rogers.

Winter Open Studios

The group includes members of our UU Society as well as participants from the larger art community.  Contact: Susanne Personette.

Summer Pancake Breakfasts
On the last Sunday of June and July, some of the men of our UU Society come to our kitchen to prepare a congregational breakfast. Contact: Peter Lacey.
