A Big Thank You to All BUC volunteers

Wednesday, December 5 was International Volunteer Day, a day when volunteers worldwide are celebrated for their commitment and dedication. At Beach United we are blessed with the time and talent of our many volunteers. Whether your contribution is donating baked goods for the Christmas Marketplace, serving at Out of Cold or at the Thursday Interfaith Lunch, organizing one of our many special events, or serving on one of our committees or working groups, you play a vital role in making BUC an open and welcoming place for the congregation and the community. Thank you! Brian Gauthier [ chair of Interim Board]
