NJHN Trip to Rose Day Festival, Colonial Park Gardens, Somerset @ Colonial Park Gardens
Jun 10 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm

We’ll meet at the Rose Day Festival at Colonial Park Gardens in Somerset. The Festival features the park’s beautiful Rose Garden, an activity station for kids, live music, artisan craft vendors, food trucks, and rose plants for sale. Gardeners will be on hand to answer your gardening questions.

Park wherever you find a spot in the park, then meet us at 12:00 at Parking Lot A at the entrance to the Rose Garden. Enjoy the day either as a group or on your own whenever you want. Bring a picnic lunch and a blanket or visit one of the food trucks, and then join us for lunch on the lawn at 1:00. We’ll cancel if the weather forecast calls for all-day or heavy rain.

Admission is free, but donations are appreciated.

NJHN Exploring Humanism Course (moved to 2nd Sunday this month) @ Zoom
Jun 11 @ 7:00 pm – 8:15 pm

What are the implications of embracing a philosophy or life stance in this ever changing and challenging world? How can Humanism inform our choices and guide our interactions with others? These are some of the questions we’re discussing in our new online group called “Exploring Humanism.”

We meet once a month, on the 1st Sunday, to share our thoughts on the basic tenets of Humanism, along with Humanistic approaches to an array of social issues and problems. We’re using as our guide the basic online studies program of the American Humanist Association Center for Education and will focus on one of the courses in the program each month.
