June 29, 2013 - Humanist Camping Trip

Humanists Doing Good will be camping overnight at the Ridgway State Park. The park is about an hour and a half drive from Grand Junction. Camping, fishing, hiking, birding, and wildlife viewing are accessible year-round. We have reserved some sites, but space is limited. The sites are not too far away from parking. The park features a 5 mile long reservoir. The town of Ridgway is very close and the town of Ouray is a brief 20 minute drive away too. If you are interested in participating in this camping trip, please contact us as soon as possible to aid us in our planning. Everyone is invited. Dues paying members of Humanists Doing Good are being asked to pay a discounted $8.00 per person to participate. Non-dues-paying participants are being asked to pay $10.00 per person to participate. All reservations will be nonrefundable. This helps us cover the cost of gas and applicable fees. We are asking that people bring their own choices of food for this particular event.

General Camping Information about the park is available by clicking on this link.

June 22nd, 2013 - Nursing Home Good Deeds

Humanists Doing Good has been accepting donations to fund gifts to local nursing home residents. We've been in contact with Eagle Ridge at Grand Valley and they felt the greatest need their residents had that we could potentially fulfill was to have us purchase a new bingo set for their residents. We have purchased a new bingo set for them and hope to also deliver a few additional small gifts for the residents. We are currently planning on delivering any gifts on Saturday the 22nd at 10:30 am when they gather to play bingo. If you would like to volunteer to shop for gifts, to help make the delivery and/or to hopefully spend some time visiting with the residents, please let us know.

When: Saturday, June 22nd at 10:30 am

Where: Eagle Ridge at Grand Valley (2425 Teller Ave, GJ)
