On Sunday, Feb. 10, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship topic will be “Lincoln: Perspectives and Portrayals in the Media,” presented by Doug Hershey.

Hershey comments: “It is not all that surprising that Abraham Lincoln, as the most important president in American history, has been the topic of numerous plays and movies.  How have these portrayals of Lincoln reflected the times in which they were made?”

The presentation will include information about the ways the “Great Emancipator” has been portrayed in American media.

Doug Hershey has been a teacher at Pagosa Springs High School for a couple of decades.  He has taught numerous subjects, including American History and American Perspective, a class which looks at historical events as shown in Hollywood movies. He has been a student of history even longer than he has taught it, as hard as that may be to imagine.

Courage is the theme for the children’s services for the month of February. All children are welcome to join the fun!

Last Sunday, our annual award to the Volunteer of the Year was presented, and it went to Julie Loar.  It’s impressive that Julie finds the time to give programs, be service leader and contribute in so many ways while she is also the director of operations at the Archuleta County Education Center.

The service begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall.  The address is Unit B-15, Greenbriar Plaza.  Turn east on Greenbriar Drive off of North Pagosa Boulevard by the fire station, then left into the back parking lot and look for the big sign.  All are welcome.
