Outreach and Community Service Focus Group

It's time for our quarterly Community Service and outreach planning for the next several months!

We'd really like to hear any idea's from the Freethinkers about ways we can reach out to the public, both as a way to introduce ourselves and to let others of like minds know we are here. Also if anyone has any ideas on ways we can help our community, or of any events we can join in the next months, please share .

I've been excited about discussing an idea I had for a summer 'fair" as a Freethinker fundraiser as well as a community outreach event. Perhaps we can reach future Freethinkers and let them know who we are as well. If anyone has idea's on activities for a fair (think more along the lines of school fairs, with tickets for raffle prizes as well as fun games. I'm hoping to get local donations as we did for the dance party from local businesses (letting them know that funds will be used to help our group continue and grow, providing even more Community Service projects etc.)

A few idea's for the family centered fair: Face painting, balloon animals, bean bag toss, raffles for prizes, music, perhaps a "stone the heathen" water balloon booth, pie raffle etc. Mini Disc Golf course? I would like to keep it fun for all ages. Any ideas or volunteers would be welcome. Anyone with skills: art, magicians, etc? Is there anyone that can volunteer with decorations, donations or helping out at the event? Possibly taking place in May or June.

In addition to a physical meeting, I'm going to try something new and add an online version as well. This should offer those that can't make the meeting, a chance to participate. If you're on Facebook there will be an Event ongoing until the meeting where you can post and share ideas.

If you don't use Facebook then feel free to post ideas here under comments section or send a private message.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
