UUCLB on Facebook

Thank you to UU Church of Santa Monica for hosting a great weekend at Camp De Benneville! Ten members from UUCLB and some members from the UU Church of Anaheim joined in on the fun. It was beautiful up in the mountains and there were lots of fun things to do, e.g. making tie dye shirts, playing games, making jewelry, archery, hiking, talent show, etc. Best of all, getting to know people! On Sunday, we had a church service outside in the woods! So beautiful. See MoreSee Less
