i'm a slacker...
So in 2002 a bunch of us went up to Saco ME for a little thing called TLI. all that week people took pictures and at the end everyone took home a B/W photocopy of a mug book, I was lucky enough to take home the original and now you can see it too scanned and compiled into a PDF.http://www.sendspace.com/file/vivkdr
Lots of love

dear cbd young adults,
youth bridging conference is in new london conneticut this upcoming weekend. cbd young adults have been invited to the bridging ceremony saturday night in order to welcome new young adults into our community. is anyone interested in more information about said event, particularly about carpooling?
also, i had the vague thought that us young adults could stay at a hostel or chip in as able ona hotel room together or something friday night and spend saturday together, in a kind of mini-con set up. how do people feel about that idea?

Summer's End 2007!!!
Summer’s End Is an Autonomous youth empowerment conference held annually for a week in late August. The goal of the conference is to create and provide a community of trust and acceptance, where every person can feel inspired by and connected to the group as a whole. We are youth between the ages of 14 and 22 from around the country (and around the globe!) who wish to improve not only our sense of self, but also our ability to communicate within the conference and with the world at large. Summer’s End provides us with the invaluable opportunity to explore our feelings and relationships, expand our perceptions, and to create, learn and grow within a safe environment of our peers. What we learn at Summer’s End is taken with us and applied to the rest of our lives, making us stronger and confident in all of our endeavors.
Summer's End is for liberated youth.. non-liberated youth that NEEDS liberation. People 14-22 years of age in need of a week of their summer safe from the world. Summer's End is for YOU!
This year Summer's End will be held at Camp Glenbrook in Marlborough, NH. Summer's End will be from August 9-16th!
Please feel free to contact us with any questions, comments, concerns, and love you may have!
Check out our page for more information or contact Julia (Summer's End 2007 co-chair!) at (646) 220-4507!

NO MASSIVE CON!
I don't know if people still read this....but there is no massive con!
a quick FYI on why:
the Clara Barton Center double booked massive con with a wedding and kicked us from the time slot instead of the wedding. massive staff attempted to find a new site (and did) however after reviewing all the details of the new site we voted and we decided not to go forth with massive at this time. there were many concerns dealing with the new site so that the staff were not comfortable to move on with massive and let it be as awesome and groovy as well as safe as we wished it to be under the circumstances.
our registrar is currently away, but we (staff) will be figuring out how to get people's money back to them (nothing has been cashed, dont worry).
on a note though, as of right now Massive '06 is only POSTPONED!
we as staff still need to meet again and figure this stuff out, but don't worry, y'all will be informed of everything thats going on.
sorry for the sad news!

THE FUTURE OF YRUU DEPENDS ON YOU!!! THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO BE HEARD!!!
Hey folx. It's Mikey, a lot of y'all know me. I'm the Social Action Coordinator for the MBD. Hopefully most of you have filled out a survey in the last few months as a part of The Consultation On Ministry To And With Youth. Basically the youth office is trying to collect as much data on the experiences of youth who are or have been involved with YRUU in order to re-assess how we our programming fits the needs of UU youth. If you haven't filled out a survey yet or if you filled one out at the SAC con without really understanding its importance PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE go to http://www.uua.org/TRUS/youth/index.html
and download a copy of the survey they are due on TUESDAY FEBRUARY 28TH (WHICH IS ONLY TWO DAYS FROM NOW!!!!!) you can fax it in, bring it to the youth office, or if you fell lucky try and mail it in tomorrow. This might seem like a bit of a hassle but its so worth while, please take the time to contribute your voice to the future of UU youth programming.
SEAT training? Anyone?
Is anyone going to the UU Comprehensive Sexuality Education Advocacy Training in Washington DC in March?

Hey there, I'm a member of a church in Newburyport, MA (part of the MBD), and have noticed that we in Newburypoort have been subjected horribly to a 'lack of con' action. If there are any kids from any other churches in the area that are willing to organize a con with me, I would so love that. I've got no real idea of a theme so if there is a theme bruning in your mind, now's the time to say it!
Just drop a line.

do you hug?
so im trying to educate myself on consent, and it would be really cool if you could share what you know about consent, how it is handled in your YRUU environment, any personal stories, or really anything you think could help me understand it. i hope to help shape a workshop for my district to use in conferences, so any help you could give me would be highly appreciated!

(If you're on my friends list, you've probably already read this, but I figured I might as well get as much feedback as possible from fellow UUs.)
SHYP (the Reading youth group) is going to be creating a library. We have about five hundred dollars (maybe more) to spend on books. But we've got to buy them by June 30th, because that's when our budget goes bye-bye.
So, send me your suggestions! We are looking for social history/commentary/awareness/action/etc.
, spiritual/introspective, maybe a few novels, but mostly nonfiction. Oh, and some poetry!
I've started a list, but 'tis late, and my books are all a-jumbled, and I'm sure y'all have a lot of books I don't own that should be in a Unitarian library.
Oh!--and, who we buy these books from is very important. No Amazon.com or Barnes and Noble. I've been combing the lists of independent bookstores in the Boston area, but the problem is that online I usually can't see what kind of selection they have, nor their prices. Does anyone know of a good, local place with a wide selection and reasonable prices?
