This Past December 18 brought the wonderful opportunity for UUPS to work with its newly formed offshoot group WANDS of Westminster College. A neo shamanic rite was performed by their leader, Christiaan under snow and full moon! A few members from both groups gathered on the south sound of the college at the amphitheater by a running rive to give honor and praise to father sky and mother earth. The crowning salute came with a drawn sword and refreshments of apple cider. UUPS can’t wait to work again with WANDS! Hail!

This December 1st 2010 brought UUPS the opportunity to work closely with the University of Utah LGBTQ Resource center to give time to the World Aids Day. UUPS spent two hours tabling in the student union passing out information. We are proud to be allies with our LGBTQ friends and family members! Although not enough hours, its a start to a working relationship for future volunteering opportunities with the LGBTQ Resource Center and other groups and organizations under the LGBTQ/AIDS Banner.
