Apr. 18th, 2015 - Earth Day / Southwest Arbor Fest

Humanists Doing Good will be setting up a booth at the Earth Day / Southwest Arbor Fest and we're seeking volunteers to help set up, take down and staff our booth. A couple of our members have generously donated around 100 small lilac and iris plants that we will be selling to generate funds and to help add some green to our valley. We will also be providing information about Humanists Doing Good to the public. We are happy to make sure that any newer volunteers are matched with more experienced ones and we can be pretty flexible with our shifts. If you'd like to volunteer, please let us know what time period you would prefer.

Our setup will begin at 11 am. The event lasts from noon to 5:00 pm and packing up afterward usually takes about 30 minutes.

When: Saturday, April 18th - Shifts available between 11:00 am to 5:30 pm (event officially lasts from noon to 5:00 pm)

Where: Lincoln Park

Apr. 11th, 2015 - Community Good Deed

We are seeking volunteers who will canvass the downtown area in small groups with the intent of encouraging people to carry out good deeds for others. Volunteers will be sent out with information and a small bonus item to encourage random people to think about their ability to do something kind for others. There is a strong element of "Pay It Forward" to this particular event, but we don't want to entirely spill the beans about the event online. If you have a yellow volunteer shirt, you are asked to wear it during this event. If not, don't let that stop you from participating.

Join us as we work to spread some cheer and encourage kind actions in our community.

When: Saturday, April 11th from 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Where: Contact us for details or view the location once logged into our meetup link below.

Apr. 4th, 2015 - Eggless Brunch & Meeting

As Easter approaches, we figure that people have likely had their fill of eggs whether from painting, hiding or eating hard boiled eggs. Therefore we thought we'd have a little fun with an "Eggless Brunch." We encourage everyone to bring a dish to share that does not contain any egg. If you would like to, you can let us know what you plan to bring by posting it in our meetup group or you can respond to this email. If you'd like to show up with a surprise dish for this one, that's fine too.

Come and enjoy this opportunity to socialize over some scrumptious, and eggless, food. We'll also discuss general business and upcoming events. You'll also be able to find out how you can volunteer for our next good deed event. New people are absolutely welcome to attend.

When: Saturday, April 4th from 10:00 am to Noon

Where: Garden Room at The Commons (625 27 1/2 Road - Park in the parking lot at the rear of the building and enter the external Garden Room entrance)

Mar. 29th, 2015 - Hike Echo Canyon Trail

The Echo Canyon trail is located at the lower end of No Thoroughfare Canyon near the east entrance to Colorado National Monument. The trail leads into a small box canyon that can produce a reverberating echo.  During moist times in the spring, tiny canyon tree frogs are frequently seen.

This 3.3 mile hike is described as moderate. There is a several minute steep ascent on slickrock and then a bit of rock scrambling before reaching the canyon terminus.

No dogs are allowed on trails in the monument. Bring a walking stick if you use one, a light lunch and plenty of water.

When: Sunday, Mar. 29th at 9:30 am

Where: See our meetup site for details at the link below (you must sign into meetup and view event details in the group)
