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.

Dec. 13th, 2013 - The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Join Humanists Doing Good as we attend the midnight showing of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug late Thursday night/Friday predawn. Last year several of us gathered to watch the opening of the Hobbit and we're continuing the tradition this year. We encourage everyone who would like to attend to purchase tickets as soon as possible so that you are sure to have a seat. It sounds like a few of us will be coming in costumes to add to the fun, but they are certainly not required. The majority have said that they prefer 2D over 3D for these movies, so we're recommending that people purchase 2D tickets if you'd like to stay with the main group. Please feel welcome to invite others.

When: Midnight showing on Dec. 13th (most will consider it Thursday night though)

Where: Regal Cinemas
