Jane Larrick is the volunteer of the month for September. Jane joined UUCSS in April 1991 after her friend and colleague Drew Riggs invited her to come and hear him play at a service. She had been looking for a community of like-minded people and instantly felt she had found it at UUCSS.
Jane is currently the UUCSS caring coordinator and co-editor of the Uniter newsletter. She has been a member of the choir for at least 25 years. During her 28-plus years at UUCSS, she has held numerous Board and Program Council positions.
Jane recommends that new members resist pressure to make long-term volunteer commitments until they find a cause that really inspires them.
Jane says this church has taken the place of the community of her youth, where she felt known and comfortable. Her happiest memories at UUCSS involve singing, her Inreach and Creative Aging groups, and auction events where she’s gotten to make new friends.
Jane’s favorite leisure activities are singing, playing the recorder, jogging, hiking, and reading.
