Nov. 8th, 2014 - Humanist Hike: Palisade Riverfront Trail

We'll be doing a leisurely and easy hike along the Palisade section of the Colorado Riverfront Trail. The trail is a dog-friendly and mostly paved 3.5 mile round-trip trail. If you have dogs, feel free to bring them out to meet some other pooches as we enjoy some of the fall weather. An old cannery is visible from the trail and the path meanders through trees along the river. There is also the Palisade Heritage Area that is the site of a migrant workers camp that was operational until the 1960's. The trail should allow us to avoid potential problems with mud and so far the forecast says sun. There are numerous benches and places with grass to stop and relax.

When: Saturday, Nov. 8th at 10:00 am

Where: Colorado Riverfront Trail's Palisade Section (park in the parking lot on the south end of Brentwood Drive)

We'll be having an After-Halloween Party again this year! We encourage everyone to come in costume for a hilarious and spooky evening of fun and games. Prepare yourself for games like Fear Factor, balloon stomp and Werewolf. The evening will be very kid friendly, but with a spooky theme. We encourage everyone to bring snacks to share. We had an absolute blast last year doing this and we're sure we'll have a great time this year!

Oct. 23rd, 2014 - The Invention of Lying

We'll be watching the movie The Invention of Lying and using remaining time after the film for discussion of the film and its concepts.

The Invention of Lying takes place in an alternate reality in which lying--even the concept of a lie--does not even exist. Everyone--from politicians to advertisers to the man and woman on the street--speaks the truth and nothing but the truth with no thought of the consequences. But when a down-on-his-luck loser named Mark suddenly develops the ability to lie, he finds that dishonesty has its rewards. In a world where every word is assumed to be the absolute truth, Mark easily lies his way to fame and fortune. But lies have a way of spreading, and Mark begins to realize that things are getting a little out of control when some of his tallest tales are being taken as, well, gospel. With the entire world now hanging on his every word, there is only one thing Mark has not been able to lie his way into: the heart of the woman he loves.


Please feel welcome to bring food and drinks for the show.

When: Thursday, Oct. 23rd from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Where: Garden Room at The Commons (625 27 1/2 Road, Grand Junction - park at rear of the building and enter through the Garden Room entrance)
