On April 15 – you may know – a Song Tree concert was presented by the Social Justice Ministry of the Live Oak Unitarian Universalist Congregation. The show featured the stomping, sparkling folk music ensemble The Honeysuckle Possums.
The purpose of the event, aside from the fun and good fellowship of heartfelt music, was to raise a contribution for the American Civil Liberties Union. What a great evening!
It took a couple weeks to get all the proceeds; contributions continued to arrive by mail after the show. (People are amazing.) But now, we’re pleased to announce that the Live Oak Congregation was able to write the ACLU a check for $2,453.50. This figure represents the total contributions, minus expenses to the Congregation, and minus the measly, paltry percentage given to the Honeysuckle Possums. Thank you, Possums.
We will produce another Song Tree concert at Live Oak in the near future; and again it will be for the benefit of a worthy organization that promotes the worth and dignity of every human being – in our community, and in the world beyond our neighborhoods.
If you would like to be added to the e-mail list for these events, sign up below, and we’ll let you know the next time we get together for music and camaraderie.
