Audrey McGlashan


Hello, I am Audrey, a new board member and new board secretary. About me, I would say I enjoy being part of a group working together and I also like to walk my dog down our woodsy road imagining paintings I will make or themes for the painting classes I lead. Things I have always been, an artist, a creator, a singer, a gardener a lover of humor. Things I am working on, being a better human, being a teacher, being a listener and knowing when to do and when not to do.

I was born in England to Scottish parents and came to the US in 1993, becoming a citizen in 2002. I married my husband Richard in 2000 and it was he that was raised in the UU church and how I connected – up till that point I had been an Anglican. So happy am I to be part of the fellowship and will hopefully be useful as a board member.


David Bilski


David retired from a long career at the University of Washington Libraries (Seattle) in 2016 and moved with his wife Jill to the Pemaquid peninsula. He enjoys music, hiking, Nordic skiing, traveling, playing with our dogs, reading, and the gustatory delights of coastal Maine.


Patti Anderson

Trustee
I joined MUUF in the fall of 2016 having retired to South Bristol, Maine after a career of teaching foreign languages – French and Spanish – from Rhode Island to Athens, Georgia to Athens Greece (an American International School) and back to New York and finally Connecticut. Having lived and studied in France, and then living and working in Greece for eight years I am a global enthusiast. I love the ocean, swimming with wild dolphins, and even recently humpback whales. I am the proud mother of my son Rodey and especially enjoy traveling with him. It has been my joy to be a part of our MUUF community as a Member, a past Worship Associate, and currently a Member of the Board.
