The event starts at 6 and ends at 9, if you arrive before 6:15 you can chip in for pizza, or bring your own food (and of course your own beverages).

Items in the collection include minutes, correspondence, membership lists, speeches, photos, and newspaper clippings. For an inventory of the collection, follow this link: ethicalhumanistsociety.org/history.

• Enjoy the coffee and social hour after Sunday morning programs. For the summer, the coffee hour is 'Do-It-Yourself'. Feel free to bring snacks to share and make coffee or tea. But, please help to clean up afterwards.
