Eastern Ohio Freethinkers

We have formed this group as a result of several years of monthly traveling to Akron, Cleveland and Mansfield to meet with fellow freethinkers and humanists.

We know there are people in the Tuscarawas valley with a rationalist outlook. We know those people would welcome a chance to get together with friends to discuss the events of today. We know that even in todays internet society there is a huge need for friendships and casual conversations face to face. Since the time of our distant ancestors, nothing has soothed the tribal spirit more than sitting around the fire and discussing interests of the day.

We propose this group as a real alternative to the technological seperation that we are all experiencing today. Please JOIN OUR VILLAGE and help us improve our little corner of the world.
