Rockville Maryland Discussion Group

  • February 7 · 8:00 PM
  • Robert Ahrens' home

Our discussion groups are now on the first Friday of the month.

Robert Ahrens as usual will be hosting this meeting. The meeting will start at 8 pm. People may arrive as early as 7:30 so that we can actually start at 8 pm. Please bring a small contribution of food and/or drink to be shared with the group. The home is in Rockville near Viers Mill and Aspen Hill Road. Transport to and from the Twinbrook Metro stop can be arranged if needed.

Mr Ahrens address and phone numbers are not posted here to preserve the privacy of his home. Those details will be emailed the week of the meeting to those who are coming (see note below). Affirmative RSVPs should be posted before 8 pm the prior Thursday to allow time to notify all attendees.

 

Note: an occasional problem with Meetup emails is that some spam filters will preclude delivery of Meetup email. If you RSVP Yes and want the email informing you of a meeting held in a private home this can be a problem. To prevent this a member can add [masked] to their personal email addresses. If a member does not receive the directions to a Friday meeting by late Tuesday evening he/she needs to directly contact to the organizer. Use the Meetup option for this. A phone call to[masked] leaving your email address is another option. Posting a comment saying that you did not receive the directions (without including your personal email address) is not helpful since if your spam filter stopped the first email it will also stop subsequent email. We want people to be comfortable in opening up their homes to other meetup members and this technical difficulty is a small price to pay to preserve the privacy of those who host events in their homes.

    Hello all. Great to spend some time with you.

    Some of you may be interested in a talk by Fred Edwords at our monthly WASH MDC chapter meeting "How Noah and His Ark Became Lost at Sea."

    This is Saturday February 15 from 2:00-4 pm in the
    Wheaton Library (basement room). We have a talk followed by Q &A and lots of time for people to meet and chat over snacks...
    Fred Edwords has 36 years experience in freethought leadership, having led local and national organizations since 1977. He was executive director of the American Humanist Association for fifteen years, editor of the Humanist magazine for twelve, and has served as national director of the United Coalition of Reason since its founding in early 2009.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
