Now known as the East County Heathens, this is a social group for atheists that live and play in East County ... and anyone else who doesn't mind making the drive out here!  Atheists, humanists, agnostics and all freethinkers are welcome.  Our goal is to provide a social outlet for freethinkers living east of Route 15 including but not limited to El Cajon, La Mesa, Lemon Grove, Santee, Lakeside, Jamul, Spring Valley, and Alpine. We don't at this point cover points north of Poway but that may change as our membership grows.  In this conservative part of San Diego it is often difficult to find like-minded people.  Join the East County Heathens ... you are not alone.

Our events comprise all facets of social connection and are membership driven: hiking, exploring new restaurants, play readings, horror movie night, game night, lectures, music events, humanitarian events, sports, rodeos, book discussions.  The only limitations are our own creativity.  It is a diverse group and there is something for everyone.  So bring your positive energy and make the East County Heathens part of your social life.  We are looking forward to meeting you.
