Merry Christmas, everybody, from everyone at ULC!
We are taking applications for male sextons to live here for the remainder of 2012-2013 school year and/or summer 2013. For an application, click [here].
Wondering what the sexton program is? The University Lutheran Chapel sexton program is a sort of co-op situation whereby sextons (young people interested in living in a Christian co-op situation and, generally, UCLA undergraduates) live at the chapel in exchange for eight hours of volunteer work per week and a small monthly donation for utilities. Sextons also attend a specified number of events (services & bible studies, generally) per academic quarter.
And what do the sextons do? They, in large part, run the chapel! We need people to help with everything from checking email to maintaining the building, from planting flowers to planning events, and everything in between. The best fit is a person who has particular skills to offer that he/she is proud of (e.g. music, artistic skills, people skills) and also is open to learning to do a variety of new tasks as needed.
We’ve teamed up with Beta Theta Qi for a blood drive on Tuesday, October 16th. So, if you can, please stop by the blood donation centers either on campus (in Ackerman) or on Gayley and give blood. If you let them know it’s being done as part of the University Lutheran Chapel blood drive, we can accumulate “points” that can be used toward things like a dinner party, or allow us to give even more to charity. If you can’t donate, try asking a friend to pretty-please donate? Spreading the word about blood donation is as important as giving blood. Let’s save some lives, any way we can!
We’ve decided that we don’t need hundreds and hundreds of plates filling our kitchen cabinets, so we’re giving away our excess. Before heading to Goodwill, we’re offering them to anyone who needs them for personal use. We’re giving away everything in the photos below. Unfortunately, most of are not full-sized plates but medium-sized or even saucers. That being said, I make use of those medium-sized ones all the time, and other residents use them a lot too. The full-sized ones are somewhat mismatched but we have matching sets of two or four of certain ones.
A fun little fact: The ones with the green edging are antique restaurant ware. There are actually two different brands, one called Tepco (the edges are green) and the other called McNicol (the edges are actually grey, not green; we just never noticed before). Coincidentally, the McNicol ones seem to be part of the McNicol “Sexton” collection!!! So the sextons feel kind of bad thwarting the poor guys out of their destiny but our cabinets were too full and so it’s time to part ways.
Email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’d like some of these plates, like if you are or know someone in college or a new apartment who might appreciate them as a starter set that’s better than cheap plastic ones!
Join us on the patio at 8.15pm to watch the partly humorous, partly morbid, and all parts awesome classic love story Harold & Maude, projected onto the side of the building. Snacks like soda and chips and cookies are served, and there are comfy couches and chairs. You may wish to bring a blanket for if it gets chilly, or just for comfort.
Our final movie (Friday, September 7th) is Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, so if you can’t make it for Harold and Maude, be sure to make it to that one! We hope to see you there.
UPDATE: Spots are still available for Fall (and Summer), first come, first served! Email email@example.com.
Looking for parking close to UCLA? We offer parking spots for $205/quarter, and at pro-rated prices during the summer. (In the summer, it’s even possible to make special arrangements like paying only for one or two days a week that you need it, so we need to know what dates/days you’re interested in before we can give a price.)
If you’re interested in summer parking, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, and mention the days/dates that you’ll need it. We have tons of spots open. For academic year parking, again, email us and let us know when you need parking. Because academic year parking at ULC is in such high demand, we have to do a lottery-style selection process. The deadline for getting your name in the lottery is August 15th. After that, it is nearly impossible to get a spot, since most people keep their spot all year, but you can still email us to inquire about being in the lottery for the next quarter for any spots that open up.
OR, you are guaranteed a spot if you participate in Wheelz, a third-party company/program that allows people to make extra cash by renting out their cars! (See their website here, and an information sheet here; it’s legit, with insurance and driving record checks, online payments, and everything.) Again, the deadline is for the 2012-2013 academic year lottery is August 15th.
Notice: To keep clear the spaces that students have paid for, we patrol our lot daily. Unauthorized vehicles are booted and/or towed. Vehicles blocking the entrance are towed immediately.
