2) Four Corners UU Retreat, involving fellowships from southwestern Colorado. July 13 – 15. This is held on a beautiful private ranch near Vallecito Reservoir (near Durango). Bill Spence and Sue Edelstein went last year and would be happy to tell you more. Activities for the whole family. Friday night has no planned activities, just a time for campers to get set up, get to know each other, and spend the night. The retreat leader will be the Rev. Burton Carley. Burton, originally from a small town in west Texas, was a UU minister in Shreveport, LA a number of years. For several decades since then he has been at the First Unitarian Church in Memphis, known also as the Church of the River because of its view of the Mississippi River from its sanctuary. He was the Southwest district’s trustee on the UUA board from 2000 to 2009.
