"A Celebration of the Centennial of the Dedication of our Building"
This service honors the dedication of the First Unitarian Church of Omaha which took place on September 29, 1918. We will honor our past and the people who built the fires by which we are warmed, and dug the wells from which we drink. We will also have an eye to the future and those who will continue the traditions and values we hold dear. Several “visitors” from our past will speak to us on this auspicious occasion. Speakers include former President William Howard Taft, Board member Sarah Joslyn, stalwart leader of the Women’s Alliance, Grace Holdrege and Alan McDonald, the architect of our beloved building. The service will also feature music and other elements from the original dedication service, in addition to some more contemporary elements. It is hoped that this re-dedication will be an inspiration to all of us. You are encouraged to “dress up” in attire from the period. This is not a requirement, but it is hoped this will make for a festive atmosphere as well as a tribute to our past.
