This year a UUG group of hearty walkers participated in the 8.5 km Escalade walk on the 1 December 2017, the Friday night before the big Escalade running races and really had a lot of fun. We did it in the spirit of enjoying ourselves rather than competing with others so we walked briskly but not too fast for deep and light-hearted chatting.

UUG Thanksgiving Celebration, Saturday, 25 November 2017, 6pm
On Saturday, 25 November, 6pm (18h), about 30 of us joined together in Mies, Vaud, for a UU traditional "non-traditional" American Thanksgiving celebration! We had a delicious composite of culinary delicacies contributed by guests. We were also treated to some amazing classical piano music by some of the accomplished teenagers attending. The little kids seemed to have a fun time playing hide and seek and the adults were chattering away non-stop! A wonderful way to extend the community and extended family spirit!
We have definitely created a new tradition over the last 4 years enjoying a heritage common to many of us (the U.S. holiday of Thanksgiving). We also honor the blending in of other traditions such as vegetarian dishes into this feast It's the epitome of pluralism: holding two or more positions at the same time! Sign-up on website by mid-November.
