The Thomas Jefferson District’s annual meeting voted on Saturday, April 30th, to change its name to Southeast District – Unitarian Universalist Association. The change is effective immediately, however, the implementation will proceed over the next weeks. The Harrisonburg Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is part of this District. You can read History of a Name on the TJ District blog.

The Thomas Jefferson District Annual Meeting & Family Retreat will be in Haw River State Park, Brown Summit, NC (near Greensboro) on May 8 – 10. The business meeting will intentionally be very brief; the weekend is planned as an intergenerational retreat where you can relax, renew old friendships and get to know new UU friends from other congregations. The focus of the weekend will be on how to create authentic intergenerational community in our congregations. There will be lots of music, informative workshops, excellent worship, and plenty of community time. The two candidates for the Presidency of the UUA, Rev. Laurel Hallman and Rev. Peter Morales, will be there on Friday night and Saturday morning.
Accommodations at The Summit are cabins of 8 or 9 and motel-like rooms that sleep 2 or 3. The District has arranged discounted rates at motels close by, and there are campgrounds too. Full registration is $95 for adults and $65 for children. This includes conference fees, all meals and 2 nights lodging. More information is available at http://tjd.uua.org
