News and Events

Apr. 26th, 2018 - Book Club Evening

Choose any book that you would like to read and come and talk to the group about it after you've read it. Don't have time for a book at the moment? Don't let that stop you and come listen to others or tell us about a book you've read some time ago. We've had a blast learning about a wide variety of books and it is a fun way to find new books to read. Please feel free to bring any food or any non-alcoholic drink you might like to enjoy during the discussion.

When: Thursday, April 26th at 6:00 pm

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

Apr. 14th, 2018 - Roadside Cleanup of HDG's Adopted Highway

We're seeking volunteers to help clean up Humanists Doing Good's adopted section of highway. We typically have a bit of an informal "treasure hunt" to see who can find the weirdest or best discovery during the cleanup. The more volunteers we have, the more fun we have and the more trash we're able to take out of the environment. We will provide safety jackets and trash bags for this event. We recommend gloves and sturdy footwear. Consider bringing your own water, reach extender (grabbers) and sunscreen.

All volunteers should watch the following safety videos before participating:

When: Saturday, April 14th from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm

Where: Park at Stewart and Stevenson's (2380 US Hwy 6 & 50, GJ)

Apr. 7th, 2018 - HDG Monthly Meeting & Social Potluck

Join everyone for our monthly meeting and social potluck. Bring a dish to share if you can, learn about upcoming events and help us plan for the future. We will also likely work on preparing some large donation boxes for an upcoming collection effort to benefit the Women's Recovery Program. It is helpful if you can post what dish you plan to bring in the comments so that we can try to fill any remaining gaps. Dave Tolen will also lead a brief presentation and discussion on the topic of Simulation Theory. If you feel inspired to try and create a "simulated dish" or something out of science fiction, please feel free to do so! Haha

When: Saturday, April 7th at 10:00 am

Where: Garden Room at The Commons of Hilltop (625 27 1/2 Road, GJ - Park at the rear of the building and enter through the external garden room entrance)

Mar. 25th, 2018 - East Creek Hike

This hike is about 2 miles round trip and is partly on the old Tabeguache trail, partly more rocky in places, but GJHikes rates it as "easy". We will see several petroglyphs, and some rock shelters. We will also see a geologic mystery!

When: Sunday, March 25th at 10:00 am

Where: To get there, Go south on Highway 50 toward Delta. Near Whitewater, turn right onto Highway 141 toward Gateway. Go 1.4 miles to where the bridge crosses east creek. There is a small parking area on the right and a larger parking area on the left, with a large sign for the Tabeguache Trailhead.
