In the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 service years, local artist and BUUF member Melissa “Sasi” Chambers donated a unique “tarpage” art piece to each plate partner. Several tarpage art pieces were donated to BUUF and will be on display in the sanctuary starting in September 2017. These include a tarpage for our Meszko scholarship fund (a sister tarpage will go to the church in Meszko with our Choir pilgrimage) and two tarpages for the Pay it Forward Fund.
