Karen and I are delighted that the group would like to join us at our home for a social gathering on Saturday, November 20th, 2010, at 3:00 PM.
Because it is to be an informal and, hopefully, fun time for all we would welcome you bringing guests. (It may be a good idea, if you have any, to bring along some folding chairs since seating may be limited.) - But that is ALL! - There will be wine and beer as well as some hearty fare waiting for you; but we really look forward to having you share with all of us your favorite dish or other specialty. We can consider this event as a "warm-up" to the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday we all appreciate.
Here are directions to our home in Franklin:
We are about 11 miles from Ellsworth. Taking Route 1 North from the "Triangle" go five miles to Route 182. Go left for about six miles to Franklin. Right past the intersection of Route 200 you will begin to slow down and look for these landmarks in succession: Yellow fire truck sign on right, then green street sign, "Dwelly Point Road" (also on the right), and turn right there. (If you go past Smokey, the Bear sign at the fire house you've gone too far!). Our mailbox is about a quarter mile down Dwelly Point Road on the left - number 30. Turn left onto the driveway - the house is at the end. You can park anywhere after you make the left-hand turn at the bottom of the hill. If you should park on the driveway from this point on to the house, let's make it all on the right-hand side.
Any questions or suggestions you can reach us at[masked], or email: [address removed] Again, we look forward to seeing you all.
Downeast Humanists & Freethinkers celebrates its 10th anniversary on January 1, 2015! We meet in Ellsworth on the 1st Saturday of every month at 3:30 pm; upstairs at the Maine Grind. We are an Affiliate of the American Humanist Association.
Our mission: To provide a forum for discussing issues of common interest and concern to humanists and freethinkers, and to promote in the larger community the ideas of humanism and free thought.
Does this describe you?
Humanists believe that, using reason and compassion, we can live ethical and fulfilling lives. We don't look to supernatural explanations or divine intervention to solve the problems of humanity and the planet.
Freethinkers form opinions on the basis of evidence, as opposed to tradition, authority, or dogma.
