2013 Humanist Picnic for Gloucester County Humanists, Camden County Humanists, and South Jersey Humanists! Sunday August 4th from 12 noon until 3pm in beautiful downtown Clayton NJ!

This year we are going to have a backyard BBQ picnic at the home of GCH's Janice Rael in Clayton, Gloucester County. The house is small but the yard is big. Update: the pool is closed.

To make this a success, we need you to bring a potluck dish! Please email Janice at [masked] to let us know what picnic dish you can bring. Kid-friendly, dog-friendly, ok to BYOB.

We can discuss the details in the comments section on this event page, or call Janice at[masked] for more info. The address will be emailed to those who RSVP.

    In the event that it rains (hard), we should have a back up plan. I know you (Janice) mentioned that PB's in Glassboro has a backroom we can have events and meetups at. I think we should keep that in mind just to be safe. :) The weather so far mentions rain and clouds. It could change back to sun last minute. But, I think we should have a Plan B. Food for thought.

      Sunday's weather forecast is supposed to be good! whoo hoo

    Looks like we're going to have a small crowd in my yard, which is fine by me! One of my friends is bringing two kids ages 8 and 10, and someone from Camden County Humanists is bringing an 8-month-old baby. We still need to coordinate food! Let me know what you can bring!

      Sounds good Janice,I'm bringing a dessert.prob a cake :-D

      1 · August 2, 2013

  • Janice R.

    Folks, if you can bring lawn chairs or camp chairs, please do so, we've got 35 RSVPs now from all across the internet! Thanks, and see you Sunday at noon!

    I just posted this message in the New Jersey Humanist Network group on Facebook and decided to share it here too: Now I think we have 32 RSVPs and Lisa is bringing the music, while Greg is bringing two good friends of mine from NYC! I've known them both 10 years, Vielka since the MSN Atheist Chat days, and Craig since the Infidel Guy days. So I hope people bring extra chairs! I'm so excited, the AHA sent out an email to all members in the Glassboro area, and two new people joined GCH's Meetup and RSVPd to the picnic! This is going to be so cool. Also, my daughter Gloria, age 16, will lead us in a game called "5 Ws" which has to do with making crazy questions and answers and passing your papers around. Should be hilarious.

    Looking to surround myself with the like minded.get a feeling of comradary(think I spelled that right).to talk to those (and listen) who feel like I do.and hopefully to learn. P.S. I'll take a cue from Stacy B and ask if I should bring anything. P.S.S its my first meeting too.

      Hi Darin and welcome to the group! I will email you from Meetup with my address and how to find my little house. Do you have a favorite summer specialty dish? Maybe you can bring a dessert, we are low on desserts. You may want to bring chairs too! My home is very modest but I have a big yard. I will have some magazines and info from the American Humanist Association so you can learn more. It will be awesome! Look for my email to the account you use for Meetup.

      July 25, 2013

    • Darin D.

      Thank you Janice,sounds like a great time.I'll see what I can do in the way if chairs.see you then.

    Hey everyone, if you have lawn chairs, camp chairs, or other folding chairs, please bring them! We have a lot of RSVP's all over the internet and we need more chairs!

  • Stacy B.

    Hello all! This will be my first meetup with this group. I'm looking forward to meeting you all! Is there anything I should bring?

    3 · July 25, 2013

    • Janice R.

      Hi Stacy, what is your summer potluck specialty? Maybe something sweet and dessert-y? A favorite salad? Something else you like? We should have 30 people. I will email you through Meetup with my address.

    We can bring whatever you still need. Janice, once you have a list of what others are bringing, let me know. NJHN will provide an extra $50 toward food, drinks, extras, whatever is needed.

    Hey everyone, when you get to my house, try to park on the grass, pull up close to the house, whoever gets here first is gonna get blocked in until it's over. It's a little white house with a cigar store Indian on the porch; there is a freestanding metal gate at the mailbox on the street. Park on the grass and come on to the back yard!

    I would like to come! Ed B
