To the Members of the Central Midwest District
From Sue Stukey, UUA Trustee (retiring)
May 16, 2007

Dear Friends,
My term as your UUA Trustee comes to an end following General Assembly in Portland this June. I want to take this opportunity to thank you all, once again, for allowing me the privilege of serving our wider Unitarian Universalist movement in this way for the past eight years.
sue.jpgI have totally enjoyed visiting your congregations and getting to know so many of you. Thank you for your warm welcome and generous hospitality. I've come to recognize that there are many ways to be a Unitarian Universalist, but all of us have a common dedication to making our congregations, and our world, places that truly support our values and the inherent worth and dignity of every person. You are great!

My last official business as your Trustee will be to participate with the Board of Trustees at General Assembly, June 20-24, in Portland, Oregon. This will be an exciting few days, as we are expecting this will be the second largest GA in recent history, with over 5,000 attendees. We will all spend lots of time in small discussion groups considering the future of the UUA, asking ourselves: "What difference should Unitarian Universalism make in the world? And, of course, there will be workshops, worship and dynamic plenary sessions led by our esteemed Moderator, Gini Courter. I hope to see many of you there at our District Ingathering at 4:45 PM on Wednesday, June 20.

Following General Assembly, your new UUA Trustee, Justine Urbikas will take office. I know you will welcome her with the same warmth you have shown me. She is an able and experienced UU and I know she will serve you well.

These are exciting times within our movement. I'm looking forward to participating in a variety of ways in the future. We will be moving to a new home in Vermont this summer, but will continue to "commute" to the Midwest for many years to come as we visit family and friends.

Again, it has been a privilege to serve you and our Association.

Yours in community,
