Small Groups

Since March 2020, we have been living with the limitations imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic. In the fall of 2022, we are beginning to reassess how to resume small group activities.

At LUF you can find many ways to get connected with others, to explore your particular interest. Whether it is a regular weekly or monthly event, special events that may happen annually, or one-off occasions, you will find many ways to become engaged.   

Small Groups & Activities

Small groups and activities are part of the inner heartbeat of LUF. These are largely generated by friends and members themselves and speak of our own wishes, questions, and needs. They also can change very quickly. Here are a list and contacts of much of what is happening. Groups are welcome to help the Webmaster keep this up to date.

LUF is pleased to offer Blues & Roots concerts. Invited musicians from the community periodically entertain members, friends, and the community.
