Board of Trustees Nominees
Ginny Allen found Unitarian-Universalism in college and has been joyfully active in UU churches since then. She and her family (husband Craig, son Nick, and daughter Katherine) joined Unity Church in 2000, and for the last 13 years Unity has been at the center of their spiritual, social, and service lives. Ginny loves working with Unity’s amazing ministerial interns and has served on many Ministerial Internship Support Teams. She enjoys participating on Welcome Teams and was a covenant group leader for seven years. In 2010 she chaired one of the key committees for the Unitarian Universalist Association General Assembly that was held in Minneapolis. In her professional life, she works as a developer analyst at a newspaper software company in Roseville. Ginny and Craig live in Falcon Heights and are recent empty nesters; Nick graduated from college in May and Katherine began at Haverford College in Pennsylvania this fall.
Hal Freshley has been gradually getting to know more and more people at Unity Church over the 15 years since he was invited by a friend to explore singing in Unity’s adult choir. Since then, he has found many opportunities for engagement (and joy!) at Unity Church: as a Worship Associate, in covenant groups, on pilgrimage to Transylvania and Boston, and being part of Unity’s Pastoral Care Team. Before his retirement, Hal was a teacher, a researcher, and a planner — and usually a mix of all three. He retired in 2011 from the Minnesota Department of Human Services, Aging and Adult Services. He lives in the Dayton’s Bluff neighborhood of St. Paul with his dog, Beechum.
Peggy Lin has been around Unity Church since she was age seven and has done and seen lots along the way! Highlights include marriage to her husband Harrison in 1998, service as a member of the Ministerial Search Team in 2000, the dedication of all three of her daughters (Ellie in 2002, Hattie in 2004 and Josie in 2006), lots and lots of religious education teaching roles, great fun and work on the Unity Children’s Musical, service on the Capital Campaign team and lately singing in the Women’s Ensemble. Peggy is an employee benefits lawyer by profession and lives in St. Paul. Peggy is delighted to have the opportunity to serve the congregation of Unity Church as a trustee in the hopes that her service might help Unity stay strong for many decades to come.
