Time for Winter Institute!
Have you registered for Winter Institute yet? This relaxing, fun, and “schedule free” weekend is an intimate gathering for UUs of all ages.

For those who choose to stay in their slippers all weekend, there is a beautiful lodge with its many cozy corners and fireplaces. The pool and hot tub are truly a wintertime treat.
