How to Get the Word Out
The eNews is a weekly publication containing short articles, flyers or links to longer articles. The eNews contains only items directly related to Society sponsored events or organizations with which we have a formal relationship. You may submit pictures to be published with your article.
The deadline for submitting items to the eNews is every Monday at noon. You may submit items by sending them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Any deviation from the schedule will be announced well in advance.
Our congregational newsletter is published four times per year, and contains articles 200-400 words in length. The Steeple’s goal is to look at our Society from a “big picture” perspective and to offer insight into our goals and mission. Our newsletter is not a place to notify people of upcoming events, and will not contain a calendar.
2020 Steeple newsletter deadlines: January 13, April 6, August 24, and October 26 (published in January, April, September, and November). To submit an article for the Steeple, please email email@example.com.
The Society has a Facebook private group page at First Unitarian Universalist Society of Burlington. If you have a Facebook account please find us and request to join this group. This is the place for members to share anything that’s on their minds, get the word out about community events (even those not directly sponsored by the Society) and have discussions. This site is really the members’ site; the more you use it, the more interesting it will be. You may also post to this site by emailing to UUSocietyBurlington@groups.facebook.com. There is also a public Facebook page which we encourage you to “like” and it will have information on public events and general happenings at the Society.
The Links is a new publication just for this very special time. The purpose of this weekly email is to provide one easy place to find links to online FUUSB events. The Links is only for events that are open to everyone in the Society.
The Links is emailed to everyone in our database on Saturdays, and includes the following week’s events. If you have an event to be included, please email your announcement to Christina at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday night for the following Sunday-Saturday. Please include: the date (and if it is recurring), time, a description of the event, and the link. If it is a meeting that can be accessed by internet and phone, please also provide the phone number.
Email Christina to have events or content added to the FUUSB website.
Order of Service Announcements
(currently suspended while services are held online)
Order of service announcements are due Monday at noon for publication in the following Sunday’s order of service. Please keep these announcements fairly short (fewer than 50 words) to keep our paper usage to a minimum. Send order of service announcements to email@example.com.
As another way to save paper, we are discouraging the use of inserts in the order of service. Please consider carefully before submitting an insert. If you decide that an insert is absolutely necessary, it must fit on one third of an 8½ X 14″ or 8½ X 11″ sheet of paper and must arrive to us copy ready. Please note that we will only allow one insert per event. This means that we will not publish your insert for more than one Sunday. Please consider advertising your event in the eNews as an alternative to an insert.
