Feb. 16th, 2014 - Darwin Day at Dinosaur Journey

Join Humanists Doing Good as we celebrate Darwin Day this year amongst the dinosaurs and look at some rather direct evidence of evolution. We’ve reserved space at Dinosaur Journey for a potluck and cake to celebrate the insights and profound changes Charles Darwin helped bring the world. There will be bonus points for everyone who brings an appropriately themed dish or for anyone who can provide the scientific names of ingredients in their dish. If you don’t have time to make a dish, feel free to pick up something quick to share. Everyone attending will be able to tour the exhibits and truly walk amongst the giants of the past.

We will be collecting donations to help somewhat offset the expense of this event. We are suggesting that annual dues-paying members of Humanists Doing Good donate $5 per person attending and that non dues-paying members donate $8 per person to our organization at the event. Children are welcomed and we suggest a donation of $5 per attending child.

Come on out and celebrate with us and show your support for science!

Feb. 9th, 2014 - Cheering at Special Olympics Basketball Tournament

The Special Olympics will be holding a basketball tournament at Colorado Mesa University. We are asking our members come ready to cheer their lungs out and ask that everyone bring large signs of general encouragement for the athletes. We also encourage you to wear your yellow volunteer shirts.

We have had a lot of fun cheering at previous Special Olympics events and the athletes love the support. Five basketball courts will be in use (2 in the Maverick Pavilion, 1 above the varsity court and 2 in the student center) and we'll likely need to split up our members to cheer accordingly. We plan to initially meet at the Recreation Center Gym. Plan on parking near the athletic fields. We are unable to provide a firm ending time due to the nature of the tournament and people are welcome to come and go as they need. Late arrivals are welcome for this event and can help us have sufficient numbers at the end of the event.
