Dana has offered to take us on this easy hike. We will hike towards Red Canyon along the bottom of the ravine and stop about where it splits and goes off towards Columbus Canyon. It is a fairly easy hike, not a lot of climbing, just walking a dry stream bed and going around a few large boulders. Dana likens it to Mica Mine hike in ease. It takes about 2 hours, one up and one back.

When: Sunday, October 29th at 10:00 am

Where: We will start at Dana's house. Please RSVP on meetup for the address.

Humanists Doing Good will be showing the documentary God Is American and having a discussion afterward.

Since the end of World War II in 1945, the people of Tanna, a remote and isolated island in the south Pacific Ocean, worship an American prophet, John Frum. The islanders believe he is an American pilot that returned to the United States after the end of the world war, and will come back to Tanna with riches and valuable souvenirs from the United States that they call "the cargo". They pray to an American flag, awaiting his return. One man, Isaac the Last One, chief of the "Cargo Cult", claims he is Frum's son. He has formed an army of GIs to celebrate and proclaim the return of the Frum. Viewers are encouraged to watch the documentary with a critical eye. There is some nudity present. This event is not open to the general public.

Feel free to bring your own food and drink.

When: Thursday, October 26th at 6:00 pm (we will start promptly)

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)

Join everyone as we clean our adopted stretch of the I-70 Business Loop just west of Mesa Mall. Our stretch of road is a little over 2 miles long so we can certainly use as many volunteers as possible. We also like to have a bit of a treasure hunt each time we go out to see who can discover the most unusual or interesting items.

We supply trash bags and safety vests. We recommend that you bring your own water, sturdy footwear and gloves and consider things like sunscreen, layered clothing, etc. We ask that all volunteers who wish to participate watch the two brief safety videos found at the following address:

Where: 2210 , Grand Junction - We will park in the Red Roof Inn/Roosters parking lot near the TA Travel Center. This is near the I-70 overpass.

Join everyone for a social brunch and monthly meeting to start off the month of October. Bring a dish to share (if you can post your dish in the comments it will help us fill any gaps) and enjoy all the wonderful food everyone else brings. There is no particular theme for this brunch. We'll also receive updates, do some planning for the future and discuss upcoming events. We could use ideas for future volunteer events and we'll probably do some planning for a Halloween party.

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

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)
