Sunday, June 18, 2017 - 1:30 PM: How Are You Doing?
Let's do a six-month checkup on each other since our democracy has taken a serious turn toward...something else. Have you been participating in protests, advocacy events, communicating with your elected officials? Have you turned off the TV, radio, news websites and explored new coping hobbies? What are your summer plans for vacation or home projects? Where's your favorite beach? Share your favorite grilling recipes.
This will be only a 2-hour meeting, just to connect with fellow Humanists before our summer break. We'll be discussing our slate of candidates for the NJHN Board of Directors, to be elected at the Summer Picnic. You can also renew your membership dues.
The program will start at 1:30pm in the Community Room (on the right just inside the front entrance).
Free and open to the public. Refreshments provided. After the meeting, everyone is welcome to join us for an early dinner at 4pm at Ruby Tuesday, 250 Davidson Ave, Somerset.
Tuesday, July 11, 2017 - 7:00 PM: Monthly DinnerCome out for dinner and camaraderie with fellow humanists and atheists in your area! Always an interesting conversation and new participants are always welcome. If you're new, just tell the staff you're with the meetup group.
If you know you're coming in advance, please RSVP for the event on Meetup or Facebook. Use one of the links to the right.

Widespread intellectual and moral docility may be convenient for leaders in the short term, but it is suicidal for nations in the long term. One of the criteria for national leadership should therefore be a talent for understanding, encouraging, and making constructive use of vigorous criticism.
- Carl Sagan
The lifestance of Humanism—guided by reason, inspired by compassion, and informed by experience—encourages us to live life well and fully. It evolved through the ages and continues to develop through the efforts of thoughtful people who recognize that values and ideals, however carefully wrought, are subject to change as our knowledge and understandings advance.
- from Humanist Manifesto III
