Dear Chalice Lighter,

The fall PCD Chalice Lighter call is designed to bring more PCD Unitarian Universalists to the Regional Assembly in Portland, Oregon, April 27-29, 2018.

The Pacific Central District budget for 2017-2018 includes $14,000 to be used to support members of congregations to attend Regional Assembly. We want to augment that amount with additional money from this Chalice Lighter call.

It is our goal to make Regional Assembly accessible to all congregations in the PCD. The Board voted unanimously to make a minimum of $500 available to each congregation within our District to send representatives to Regional Assembly. We want to eliminate financial ability as a factor in who gets to participate. Soon, each congregation will get information from the Board on how to access this resource.

All the funds raised in this call will be used for sending UUs from the PCD to Regional Assembly. Please support access to Regional Assembly with your gift today.

Can you afford to give $20? We are grateful for whatever you can contribute. Payments will be accepted towards this call through November 20. Ten percent of each call reimburses expenses to administer the program. You can make your payment online. Or mail your check, payable to PCD Chalice Lighters to: PCD Chalice Lighters, 7511 Greenwood Avenue North, #414, Seattle, WA 98103-4627. Please write PCD CL on both the memo line of your check and on the payment envelope.

Questions may be directed to your volunteer PCD Chalice Lighter Coordinator, Karen Urbano at pcdchalicelighters@pwruua.org. Thanks for your support!

Sincerely yours,

Charles Du Mond President, Pacific Central District Board
