July Sunday Assembly!

Join us for our monthly Sunday Assembly!  Once a month we get together to celebrate life, socialize, build community, and learn how to Live Better, Help Often, and Wonder More. Our assembly schedule (below) has something for everyone!


Welcoming Activity:  Our host, Matt McCrorey, will lead us in an opening "ice breaker" activity to start things off.

The Sunday Assembly Band:  Will lead us in some awesome songs.  Old and new tunes will be played, and everyone is encouraged to let their voices be heard! Each month they pick a selection of songs to inspire wonder and connection. And by popular demand, the Cheers theme song, "Where Everybody Knows Your Name," will open the assembly!


Reading:  Creative Writer Whittier Strong will share a reading of one of his original works.

Assembly Talk:  Our main speaker this month is our own Jen Knight. Jen will discuss the importance of play in the animal kingdom, and the importance and benefits of outdoor recreation for humans.

Jen is a passionate naturalist, with a degree from the University of Florida in Wildlife Ecology & Conservation, specializing in education. She recently moved here from Florida with her husband, dog, and snake. She is also expecting to add to her family very soon, with a baby on the way!


“X” is doing his/her Best:  Will share with us about a time he/she did his best, and what he/she learned in the process.


Meeting your Neighbors:  We are intentional about community learning, laughing, and "doing" life together. This is a good time to meet new friends and catch up with old ones.


Closing Remarks:  Host Matt McCrorey, will present a short message that wraps up our meeting.  The band leads a final song and then we are free for cookies, coffee, and friendly discussions!

      It will be sad to see you go Whittier. But let's look on the bright side, you're heading out on an awesome adventure to a beautiful state. And who knows, we nee see each other again at a future sunday assembly here in the cities or out there in the Gold Country. By the way when do you leave?

    Another wonderful afternoon spent with good people. When I think of Sunday Assembly, I feel like I have won the lottery. Thank you all for making this such a fun and welcoming community. :-)

    I signed up to be part of the Green Team on Sunday (i.e., clean up) without realizing that it is the World Cup final. I'm a huge soccer fan, and a country I lived in for 7 years in will likely be in the final game (fingers crossed). Would anyone be willing to fill in for me on Sunday? I'll happily jump in for the next SA!

    Attention all Assemblers! We are still in need of two people to bring snacks for after the July 13th assembly. Cookies or some such treat for about 2 dozen people would do it. Also looking for two more people to help with hospitality. Contact Nancy bradshaw to volunteer. Thanks, see you on the 13th!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
