High Spirits is a naughty little variety show that pays tribute to the golden age of vaudeville and burlesque and offers the audience an opportunity to get dolled up and step out for an evening of live music, dancing, comedy and burlesque style strip tease. The fabulous cast includes Seret Cole, Nicki Davis, Tawnya Drake, Wren Flannery, Justin Grow, Kaici Lore, and  Melissa Ryan.

Proceeds will benefit The Monongalia Arts Center, M. T. Pockets Theatre and Vintage Theatre Company.

Sunday 1 June 2014

On Sunday 1 June 2014, members and friends of the West Fork Unitarian Universalists will join with the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Morgantown to celebrate a Flower Communion to be conducted by Rev. Rose Edington and Rev. Mel Hoover of Charleston.

The Flower Communion is conducted in many Unitarian Universalists churches as an annual spring-time ritual. It was created in 1923 by Norbert Čapek, minister of the newly formed Unitarian church in Prague, as a way to bind the members of the congregation more closely together. His wife, Maja Čapek, brought the ceremony to the United States in 1940. For more information about the Čapeks and the Flower Communion, see Reginald Zottoli’s description of The Flower Communion: A Service of Celebration for Religious Liberals or the brief biography of Norbert & Maja Čapek provided by the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Essex County (Orange, New Jersey).

The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Morgantown is located at 429 Warrick Avenue, Morgantown, West Virginia. The service begins at 10:45 a.m. Each person please remember to bring one flower of your choice, from your own garden or from the field or from the roadside.

Those who would like, please join us for lunch following the service.
