Unitarian Universalist program
YELLOW SPRINGS — The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Yellow Springs will present “A Serious Discussion with Bubba” starting 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 30. Peter Whitson has written a mostly-true life radio play about the life and times of a local family’s canine family member, Bubba. It will focus on how pets become a part of the family and when families lose them, it is a loss to the family unit as a whole. It asks questions about life, family and loss of what individuals love most. A discussion will follow the presentation. Coffee, snacks and conversation will follow beginning at 11:45 a.m.
