Oct. 12th, 2014 - Roadside Cleanup



Let's get out and clean up our adopted section of the I-70 Business Loop on Freethought Day. We have intentionally adopted a section of road that accumulates a lot of waste and we need all of our volunteers to help play a role in keeping our local environment clean. We will provide safety jackets and trash bags, but recommend that you bring your own gloves and water. We typically also have a treasure hunt for the strangest item. Volunteers often choose to go out to lunch afterward.

There are two safety videos we ask that volunteers watch before participating the first time and they can be viewed at the following link:

When: Sunday, Oct. 12th from 10 am - Noon

Where: Stewart & Stevenson (2380 US Highway 6 & 50, Grand Junction)

Oct. 9th, 2014 - Un-Homeless Project

Help us collect useful and clean household items for donation to local people in need who are starting fresh in new home environments. Humanists Doing Good is working with local area service providers who are donating their storage space and will make the final delivery of all donated items based on individual needs. Nearly anything you think of that would be useful to somebody starting a new home can be donated. Yard sale leftovers, garage treasures, Goodwill finds, kitchen utensils, pots & pans, Craigslist freebies and more are welcome, but we must stress that everything needs to be CLEAN, functional and ready to use upon arrival. You will need to transport all items you intend to donate to a storage location near the Grand Junction library.

When: Thursday, Oct. 9th from 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Where: Address will be emailed to those who RSVP on our meetup site or you can call 970-623-2598 for more information.

Sept. 25th, 2014 - Flying Spaghetti Monster Dinner

Wondering what the heck is this Flying Spaghetti Monster thing all about? And what is this thing called "pastafarianism" anyway? Well, we'd love to have you join us for an evening of excellent spaghetti, meatballs, and madness to find out (and yes, we'll have vegetarian sauce too). We'll be cooking up some delicious food, learning about the Flying Spaghetti Monster and playing some games. Pirate themed items/costumes are encouraged (feel free to ask why) and we'll probably do a pirate-related activity or two. Believe it or not, the Flying Spaghetti Monster actually has relevance to the debates surrounding evolution and creationism and we'll be learning about that as well. If you have ideas for the gathering, we'd love to hear them. Children and guests are welcome to attend. If you would like to help make the dinner to help out, please contact us and let us know. Cost of the dinner will be $5 per person ($15 total for families of 3 or more) and fund will be used to benefit HDG.

When: Thursday, Sept. 25th

Where: Garden Room at The Commons (625 27 1/2 Road, GJ)
