Dear Members and Friends,
We’ve experienced a long period of social isolation and it’s time to get together! The Urantia Society of Greater New York is hosting a Spring/post-Easter social In Central Park behind the Metropolitan Museum. Hopefully there will be no new Covid group gathering restrictions, and if the weather cooperates it would be a blessing to spend time with old friends, make new ones, and share a meal and some thoughts about our revelatory understanding of the meaning of the resurrection. We hope you will join us.
Place: Meet under the tree in the back on the north side of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Central Park.
Date: Saturday, April 23 rd (rain date Sunday, April 24th)
Time: 1:00 PM
Etc. Bring a chair or blanket to sit on, and a bag lunch. USGNY will provide wine and dessert. Bathrooms are available in the museum.
RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, April 15th.
We will contact you by email in the event of a cancellation.
PS: Please invite others who might like to join us – along with an RSVP request so
we’ll have enough wine! (Directions below.)
