Food, fun and fabulous finds abound at the UUCCH Auction.

This year’s theme has our wizard (Steve Sharp) at the helm once more! Dust off your ruby slippers and get on down the road!

Like Dorothy, if we head down the road with an open mind and a kind heart we will find new friends and have wonderful adventures!
