Unitarians celebrate with ‘The John Graves Coffee House’

Special to The PREVIEW

The Pagosa Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will entertain attendees with “The John Graves Coffee House” and celebrate the new year on Sunday, Jan. 3, in lieu of its regular service.

For many years, at the beginning of the new year, the fellowship has hosted a coffee hour with a variety of folks sharing music, stories, jokes and general merriment. This tradition was begun by John Graves, who was the fellowship’s music director for more than 20 years. Though Graves is no longer with us, the fellowship honors his inspiring contribution to the community by inviting anyone who has an instrument to play, a song to sing, a dance to dance or a poem to read to join us in performance at this “Coffee House.” Desserts to share are also appreciated.
