Memories of Sunday: Rabbit Box and Unitarians Collaborate

Rabbit Box is collaborating with the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Athens (UUFA) for a special Sunday afternoon show called “Rabbit Box, Too: Sunday Memories.” The event, a benefit for Rabbit Box, is Sept. 27 at 2 in the afternoon in the UUFA sanctuary at 780 Timothy Drive.
What a powerhouse line-up! Storytellers include Thinc UGA director Jared Ruiz Bybee; the founder of the Athens Tutorial Program, Barbara Thurmond Archibald; retired principal Larry Johnson; UUFA lay minister Myrna Adams West; political activist Madelyn Clare Powell; and UUFA member Caryl Sundland, who has overseen adult religious education at the fellowship in the past. The performers will each tell a true, eight-minute story from their childhood memories of Sundays.

Judge David Sweat will emcee the show.

This will be the Fellowship’s first afternoon CommUUnity Forum, a new initiative to develop programs of interest for the community at large.

Keeping with the Sunday theme, the collection plate will be passed around for donations for Rabbit Box. We’re a nonprofit organization under the umbrella of the Athens Area Arts Council and use donations and ticket sales to record all our events, update our searchable archive and website, and pay a small stipend to our director, bookkeeper, photographer, and web guru.

As with our regular shows, people can put their name in a hat during intermission if they’e game to be the “Crackerjack Surprise” storyteller who gets four minutes to tell a story about their Sunday memories. Attendees are also encouraged to pin a small photo of themselves in their childhood Sunday best as an icebreaker at intermission.
