Kenya-Connecticut connection finds its roots, continues work with help from Unitarian Universalist Church of Norwich
UUCN is justifiably proud of it's members Wayne & Emely Silver, and all the work they do through their all-volunteer organization, American Friends of Kenya (AFK).
The May 24 article by Glen Alan Cheny for the Norwich Times (a New London Day publication) lays out the history of AFK, its growth and capacity over the years since it's founding in 2004, and the journey of the many volunteers who've helped the organization achieve it's mission.
We've linked to the article online below - check it out, and you'll understand why we are so proud of Wayne & Emely, and how essential people like them and their "army" of volunteers are.
Living a principled life isn't easy, but it's oh-so-rewarding!
Once again, the UNITARIAN UNIVERSALIST CHURCH OF NORWICH is putting its resources where it's values are and sponsoring buses to take residents of Norwich to their polling places. We are sponsoring THREE buses that will run according to the schedule below.
The Norwich Branch NAACP is sponsoring an additional bus to help get citizens to the polls.

Longtime UUCN member Lottie B. Scott, local attorney Frank Manfredi, and current Norwich NAACP President Shiela Hayes worked on the committee with countless volunteers to create the memorial park. Past UUCN Member Robert Groner designed and laid out the park.
