240 people came out for a special 2nd Annual, "Pete Seeger Birthday Party Sing-Along" on May 3rd at 10:30 am. While there was no charge for the program, people were generous and donated a lot of money in Pete's name to ECOS: The Environmental Clearinghouse to preserve and promote the Mohawk River.  THANK YOU!  Thank you also to Iowa folksinger and humorist, Jeffrey Hedquist (


, who donated his time, his voice, and his talent.  The luncheon following the program raised enough money to feed 600 people. Pete would be pleased.   This program closed out our 2015 Winter-Spring Season.  Be sure to join us as we kick off Season 4 on October 9th with Jay Unger and Molly Mason.  Details soon.

   Important News!
   Difficulty Hearing?  Our new sound system links with a wireless hearing loop.  If you wear a hearing aid with a telephone coil, switch to that setting to take advantage of it.  For those with reduced hearing who don't wear hearing aids, audio receivers are available. from the sound room just beyond the welcome table. 

"This was the place for me! the UUSS has a fabulous sound system that syncs with hearing aids (i just have to put my hearing aid on the "t" setting -- t for telephone, but also for this -- electromagnetic field somehow involved), and i heard lyrics and patter i have not heard in 30 or more years, and i even heard an entire joke, which is nothing short of astonishing. it isn't perfect, but it is just great."-Janet
