Friday Flicks • Movie Night!

With a twist on our former FVJN Movie Group, we are instead inviting everyone interested to join us at our neighbors, the Unitarian Universalist Society in Geneva (UUSG), for their Friday Flicks!

First up is: “DEFYING THE NAZIS: THE SHARPS’ WAR,” January 27 – 7 pm.

The UU is located at 110 S. Second St., Geneva. Free!

All are welcome, and this is a free event. Please reply to Rachel: rachely@fvjn.org, if you plan to come. For more info: http://www.uusg.org/friday-flicks/

The UU’s Friday flicks are documentaries with social justice themes. They are sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Society of Geneva.  These movies are shown free to the public the fourth Friday of most months (not December or June).Usually they begin at 7 pm. Please enter the church through the entrance at 110 S. Second Street, Geneva.

FVJN invites you to help host monthly dinners at Lazarus House in Geneva. If interested, please contact Lisa Foydel at lisafoydel@hotmail.com.

NEW: FVJN Playgroup!

Sunday, 2/19, 10 am at FVJN. Free!

Geared for littles ages 3 and under, but all children are welcome. This is not a drop-off, so parents please plan on staying and visiting.

There are lots of assorted toys there. Feel free to bring a snack, and we’ll play and hang out and visit!

If planning on coming or have questions, contact Rachel: rachely@fvjn.org. See you there!


Bravo FVJS Students!

The FVJS fundraiser breakfast, hosted and run by our FVJS students, staff, School Committee and volunteers, was a hit! The “house” was packed, and $220 was raised, which will be donated to Phillips Park Zoo, this year’s FVJS Community Service project.
