Parking at Proctor

Proctor has asked KUUF to park in the maintenance parking lot in the back of the church or to the left of the Maxwell Savage Hall.  We can continue to use the small parking area over to the left of the Chapel, just off the circle – about 5 or 6 spaces.  However, we should make them available for those who may have a problem walking from the other parking lots.  There are maps of Proctor available.  They will be on the table as you enter the Chapel on Sundays.

KUUF BOOK DISCUSSION 
Andover Stone Chapel

Book Discussion

December 3, 2017 – 9:30 a.m.
(There’ll be no Book Discussion in November.)

 

Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J.D. Vance, 2016.
“You will not read a more important book about America this year.”
-- The Economist
J.D. Vance is a former marine and Yale Law School graduate relating his powerful account of growing up in a poor Rust Belt town in the Midwest. It is an urgent and troubling meditation on the loss of the American Dream for a large segment of our country.
Hillbilly Elegy is a passionate and personal analysis of a culture in crisis – that of white working-class Americans. The story of how upward mobility really feels.
Soon to be a motion picture directed by Ron Howard. Available at most libraries or through InterLibrary Loan. Please join us for the discussion even if you haven’t read the book. Questions: Marion Allen 526-6776.
