15 juniors from Yes Prep East End School volunteered in our garden on October 2. They pitched in and worked for 3 hours under very muddy conditions. The group pulled weeds and shoveled mud from our parking area adjacent to the garden. Our Community Garden has been selected to receive the Green Jeans Award by Urban Harvest, an Association of Community Gardens. The award is based on the potlucks we have hosted the last three years, the community that our garden has encouraged, and the use of new compost and mulch in our garden maintenance. Siok Hong Chen-Baden has been nominated for the outstanding gardener. Our next Garden Workday will be on Saturday November 17 from 8:00am to noon.

Are you the parent of a young child? Do you wonder how you’ll help your child live your values in a contradicting world? Come, bring your kids, and join other parents just like yourself for a potluck meal and get to know our Parents of Young Children Covenant Group. We may be just what you’re looking for. This group is open to all parents of children up through age 12. Join us for our next gathering on Sunday November 18 from 4:30pm to 7:30pm in Cockrell Hall. Childcare is provided for $5 per child. For more information, contact Jennifer Ross-Nazzal
Our annual BAUUC Thanksgiving Day Feast will be on Thursday November 22 from 2:00pm to 4:00pm in Cockrell Hall. Our kitchen volunteers will be preparing turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes for everyone. Bring your family, your friends and a delicious dish to share. Good food and great fellowship (and not too many dirty dishes to clean up at home). Now that’s something to be thankful for!
As part of our commitment to support LGBT people in our community, BAUUC hosts the monthly meetings of the Clear Lake chapter of Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays.

PFLAG meetings are on the fourth Sunday of each month at 2:00pm in Cockrell Hall. The next meeting will be on Sunday November 25. For more information, please call the Houston area PFLAG helpline at 713-467-3524.
