Seattle Pride Parade!
UUs Joining Together ~ You’re Invited!
This Sunday, June 25
Pride Parade is this Sunday, June 25th. Some folks from Woodinville UU have invited other UU’s to join them in walking in the parade to share the news that everyone is welcome in our UU community.
We are group #197 in the parade. We will be gathering on Cherry St between 6th and 7th Ave, starting around 10:30 am. The parade starts at 11:00 am. The parade route goes from 4th and Union (2 blocks south of Westlake Center) to Seattle Center. From our staging location to Seattle Center is a 1.8 mile walk, but expect it to take about 3 hours to do that walk! (Bring water bottles, sunscreen – whatever will help you make it!)
If possible, wear a Standing on the Side of Love t-shirt or a plain yellow t-shirt or your Northlake UU t-shirt. Feel free to wear face paint, ribbons – anything rainbow-y that adds to the festivity.
Here’s a helpful article on 6 Ways to be a Better Straight Ally at Pride.
If you have questions, please email Peter D. or Janelle D., and if you plan to join us, let me know so we know to watch out for you.
Northlake, as a member of the Kirkland Interfaith Network (KIN), has been invited to participate in a book drive for homeless children in grades K – 4 in the Lake Washington School District. This will allow them to have access to books to read with their families (and participate in the community’s summer reading programs).
Fran W. will have a box in the narthex for new or very gently used book donations through July 9th. Good choices include picture books, graphic novels, early readers and early chapter books, and non-fiction books, too, with lots of facts along with the pictures: books about animals, sports, movie tie-ins, and real people.
Please address questions and comments to Northlake’s KIN representative, Fran W.

Grief & Loss Support Group
Wednesdays @ 1:30 pm
Grief is something that lives with us. Some losses have been in our hearts for a very long time and some losses are new. Anticipating losing someone is also a loss that can be difficult to navigate. Even if we know a person is expected to die, the pain is still present. For some, holding onto the grief is a way to hold on to the person who has died. It is helpful to know that the person’s spirit can be with us forever regardless of how we experience the loss. In this support group, people will be encouraged to talk about and remember the person, the loved one, who has died or is close to death. We’ll tell stories of remembering, bring pictures, and share from the heart. For more information or to let someone know you are coming, please contact Ilene S.
1st & 3rd Saturdays @ 9:00 am – NUUC Men’s Group
WE WANT YOU…To consider becoming a part of the Northlake Men’s Group.
The Men’s Group exists to promote friendship and community among the men of Northlake Unitarian Universalist Church. This is not your ordinary men’s group! There aren’t many rules, just to be your authentic self. Men of all ages are welcome. Breakfast is served at each meeting. We typically meet on the first and third Saturdays of each month, from 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. The locations vary, as one meeting each month is hosted by different members of our group, usually in their homes, and the other is a “BYOB” (Bring Your Own Breakfast) at the church. Breakfast is followed by a check-in (what happens at Men’s Group stays in Men’s Group) and discussion of a topic of interest selected by the host or agreed upon by the group.
RSVP required for hosted meetings, not for BYOB.
Contact Steve R. for further information.
