The Tree of Life Unitarian Universalist Congregation in McHenry presents "Leaves of Tree of Life -- A Virtual Verse Night" from 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 11, on Zoom. Poets will share original work.

It will be hosted by Patrick Murfin and featuring Tricia Alexander, Kenneth Balmes, Sue Rekenthaller, and Jane Richards.


The program is free to the public, but donations to the Compassion for Campers, the program that serves the unhoused in McHenry County who spend all or part of the winter months camping outside, sleeping in vehicles, or couch surfing, will be accepted and appreciated.

The program is one of the Happy Together Events offered by the congregation to connect and celebrate the community.
