Santa seems to have overlooked an important stop in Racine – the old, wonderful and historic Olympia Brown Unitarian Universalist Church building. Santa understands OBUUC's heritage, the use of the flaming Chalice, and celebratory use of candles, but is concerned about the potential risk of fire.
Therefore, Santa (the Board of Trustees, and the Finance and Building Concerns Committees) has identified the purchase and installation of an active fire and smoke detection system as the recipient of the annual congregation Christmas gift. The integrated system is expected to cost about $5,000 installed. Elf Rich Wilson will be available and providing contribution forms and envelopes at both services on Sunday, Jan. 13.
You can also forward your contributions (checks only, please) using U.S Postal Mail services to:

Please enter "07 Christmas Gift" on your check memorandum line. Please help protect this wonderful and historic building.
Comfortably resting … Santa
