Dec. 13th, 2014 - Snowshoeing on the Grand Mesa


Humanists Doing Good will be snowshoeing at the Mesa Lakes recreational area. We'll enjoy some gorgeous views of the lakes and more. This will be many people's first time snowshoeing, so we'll be taking it easy and trying to help each other learn. If you do not have have your own snowshoes, please reserve them in advance from a place like Board and Buckle (Phone: 970-242-9285 for $12 rental) or the Mesa Lakes Lodge (Phone: 970-268-5467 for $15 half day rental). Snowshoes are also available from the Colorado Mesa University Outdoor Program for $8 for the first day and $5 for each additional day, but they are not open on the weekend (Phone: 970-248-1428).

We'd like people to arrange to carpool amongst themselves as much as possible and we would like everyone to be at the lodge and ready to go by 1:00 pm.

When: Saturday, December 13th starting at 1:00 pm

Where: Mesa Lakes Resort (3619 Highway 65)

Dec. 6th, 2014 - History of Christmas & Secular Celebrations

We'll be showing The History of Christmas, a documentary that was featured on the History Channel. We'll explore things like the pagan roots of Christmas and the holiday's evolution through time. We'll then discuss how we celebrate the holiday season in our own households and encourage everyone to bring any unique decorations (Flying Spaghetti Monster ornaments?) or other things that you might have that make the holiday season special for you. How do you celebrate the holiday season?

We can also spend some time learning about the upcoming winter humanist holiday, HumanLight. It will be an opportunity to learn how we plan to celebrate this year.

When: Saturday, December 6th from 10 am - Noon

Where: Garden Room at The Commons - 625 27 1/2 Road (park at rear of building an enter the external Garden Room entrance)

Nov. 28th, 2014 - After-Thanksgiving Potluck


Join us for our annual After-Thanksgiving Potluck. We've found a great way to gobble up all that extra turkey and other delicious stuff many of us wind up with after Thanksgiving. Bring your excess turkey or whatever else you may have to our annual After-Thanksgiving Potluck. If you know you'll be able to bring something in particular, please let us know so that we can try to be sure we have all the basics covered. We'll enjoy all the delicious food, socialize and possibly play some games. It's a great way to relax after Black Friday shopping or to avoid Black Friday altogether. We've had a lot of fun doing this every year and hope to see you!

When: Friday, Nov. 28th starting at 5:30 pm

Where: Jesse and Velvet's Home in Fruita (address will be sent to those who RSVP on our meetup site or call 970-623-2598)
