June 11th, 2017 - Annual BBQ & Meeting

Join everyone for our annual barbecue potluck and meeting on June 11th at noon. We'll supply the bbq staples (hamburgers, veggie burgers, hot dogs) and ask everyone to bring a dish to share. Join us as we recognize the accomplishments of our volunteers and organization. We also plan to play some various games out on the grass. We will be located in the shelter closest to the playground and children are welcome.

Our annual bbq and potluck meeting is also the ideal time to join our organization as an official member and receive your volunteer shirt or to renew your membership. We've pushed back this year's annual meeting and hope to have warmer weather. We love to receive ideas for the future at these events too.

This annual event is a great way to meet new people, connect with others and to learn more about our community. New people are absolutely welcomed.

When: Sunday, June 11th at Noon

Where: Sherwood Park, Grand Junction

June 3rd, 2017 - Personal Story Potluck

Come join us for a potluck of personal stories. In an effort to connect with other HDG members, Roger and Luxie are hosting a potluck highlighting foods that come with a personal story. Is there a food that evokes a memory or story for you? A food that describes who you are or who you aspire to be? Bring a dish to share and we will all gather together and each person will reveal the story behind what they brought as everyone samples their dish. This event is limited to current HDG members and capped at 20 people. Address and directions to Roger and Luxie’s house will be sent to those who RSVP’d as the date draws near. It will be in Grand Junction.

When: Saturday, June 3rd at 5:00 pm

Where: Grand Junction (location will be emailed to those who RSVP)

May 28th, 2017 - Hike to Waterfall in No Thoroughfare Canyon

This hike leads past a pool and then to a nice waterfall. With a round-trip distance of 4 miles, the hike is mostly easy with a couple of rocky/rougher spots that shouldn't give anyone a problem. The terrain is about like Echo Canyon but it's a little longer. "GJHikes" calls it "easy". Dogs are NOT allowed. The Monument requires a day pass or season/senior pass, so lets carpool as much as possible!

When: Sunday, May 28th at 9:00 am

Where: Devil's Kitchen Trailhead in Colorado National Monument (East Entrance to Colorado National Monument, first trailhead/parking lot on the left)

May 20th, 2017 - Astronomy & Sci-Fi Night

Humanists Doing Good will be teaming up again with the Western Colorado Astronomy Club for an evening of astronomy and science fiction atop the Colorado National Monument. We'll begin the evening by gathering at the Saddlehorn picnic area to listen to some science fiction from the 1950s before we head down to view galaxies, Mars and Jupiter through the astronomy club's giant telescopes. We'll be including a story from the legendary Arthur C. Clark with a distinctly humanist angle. There is likely to be some hot chocolate available as well. We've had a blast doing this in this past.

This event is very dependent upon the weather and will take place outdoors. It may be subject to late cancellation. Consider bringing a blanket and layered clothing to adapt to whatever the weather brings. We'll be seated at concrete picnic tables.

When: Saturday, May 20th at 8:45 pm

Where: Saddlehorn Picnic Area on the Colorado National Monument near the Visitor Center
