Special Message from ERUUF’s Board of Trustees
March 18, 2021
ERUUF Members and Friends,
Yesterday you heard from Rev. Cayer on her plan to leave her position as ERUUF’s lead minister in June 2022. The Board spoke at length with Rev. Cayer on her plans and the transition process on Tuesday evening. We are writing to you today to let you know what to expect in the coming months.
Join the ERUUF Board of Trustees in two upcoming Congregational Listening Sessions: Our Financial and Strategic Future - Sunday, May 17, 1:00 pm and Monday, May 18, 7:00 pm via Zoom (links below)
ERUUF’s Board of Trustees welcomes new members Ed Hoefle and Carolyn Lekavich to the Board this year. We are grateful that Julie Edmunds and Bob Brown (Finance Liaison) agreed to continue to serve (Julie for one year and Bob for a full 3-year-term). Other board members are Bonnie LaCroix (Chair), Albert Hardy, Lenora Harris-Field (Secretary), Joan Tilghman, and Helen Wolfson.
by Kristi Chilton, outgoing Board chair
The members of ERUUF’s 2018/2019 Board of Trustees were Bob Brown, Rev. Deborah Cayer, Julie Edmunds (Secretary), Albert Hardy, Lenora Harris-Field, Bonnie LaCroix (Finance Liaison), Barb Sheline, Joan Tilghman, Helen Wolfson and me, Kristi Chilton (Chair). Each of these individuals brought unique gifts, and it was an honor to lead such a devoted, thoughtful, capable team of people.
Our annual pledge campaign has launched, and it is time to consider how each of us will support ERUUF financially in the upcoming fiscal year. As Rev. Cayer shared with us, there is much good news. ERUUF is in excellent condition and has experienced abundant growth in 2018 with increases in both membership and member engagement. But, “it takes a village,” a village of staff and volunteers to support and sustain this growth.
