Dec. 25th, 2013 - Delivering Treats

We're seeking volunteers who will deliver treats to people who are working or otherwise away from their families on the holidays, such as truck drivers. Volunteers will seek out open businesses or people in need of a surprise with no strings attached. Volunteers typically organize into separate teams that cover different areas of the Grand Valley. We try to surprise as many people and locations as possible with treat bags that we'll have previously packaged together during our HumanLight celebration.

We can be flexible on the time that you choose to volunteer to deliver the surprises. We recommend that anyone planning to deliver treats also attend the HumanLight celebration in order to pick up a load of treats for delivery.

Update: We have sufficient volunteers to handle all of the deliveries.

Dec. 22nd, 2013 - HumanLight Celebration & Treat Packaging

HumanLight is a secular holiday celebrated around the world since 2001. Celebrating HumanLight can be an occasion for many who are non-religious, freethinkers, atheists, and humanists to create their own meaningful traditions and to help express the positive human values, hopes, and ideals that we share.

Our tradition has been to bake treats and deliver them to people who are working on the holidays or are otherwise away from their families. We'll be asking our membership to bake treats to bring in advance of our gathering so that we can then come together and package everything into treat bags. We'll make as many treat bags as we have the supplies for and HDG will supply the baggies. We'll then have people deliver the treats to people on the 25th. We've had a great time doing this in the past and people enjoy the unexpected surprise.

Join us for celebration and volunteering to brighten the holiday season for people throughout our valley.

When: Dec. 22nd from 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Where: Wraps on Main (150 West Main Street)

Dec. 15th, 2013 - UniversiTea: Surveillance

UniversiTea is a chance to explore challenging and often philosophical questions in detail in a comfortable and relaxed environment. We dim the lights, have some tea and treats and let the conversation flow. The topic will be the emergence of the surveillance state and whether or not the benefits outweigh the problems. Everyone is encouraged to bring a treat/snack to share and we'll provide the tea.

We'll be holding this UniversiTea in Kathleen's home near the university. We'll send the address to everyone who RSVPs to the event.
