It is with great sadness that the Office has learned of the death of Lance McKee.  Lance and Kathleen (Kathy) McKee were long-time members of UUCW who moved a few years ago to Portland, Oregon, to be closer to their daughters and families. Both the McKees were active in a variety of UUCW groups over the years.  Most recently Lance was part of the Green Team which helped the congregation envision ways of reducing our carbon foot-print.  A Memorial Service is being planned for Lance, online, on September 20 at 4 pm ET.  To register for the service visit  Lance’s family has also set up a memorial website.
