~HumanLight~ A Presentation by Patrick Colucci (GCH & CCH)

Join Gloucester County Humanists for our meeting this Sunday November 17, at 1:30pm, which has been moved to the back room in PB's Restaurant and Diner, 500 Delsea Drive, Glassboro NJ 08028. We will order first then listen to our speaker, Pat Colucci, talk about HumanLight!

If you're a Humanist, you've either heard about or participated in HumanLight. However, if you don't know much about HumanLight, now is your chance to learn more about this wonderful and illuminating gathering!

Patrick Colucci will be stopping by the South Jersey area to enlighten fellow humanists from Gloucester and Camden County on just what HumanLight is and how you can be a part of this important humanist event. He will be giving a presentation followed by a brief video afterward. There will be time for a Q & A. Below is a brief summary of HumanLight and its purpose :

"HumanLight illuminates Humanism's positive secular vision. In Western societies, late December is a season of good cheer and a time for gatherings of friends and families. During the winter holiday season, where the word "holiday" has taken on a more secular meaning, many events are observed. This tradition of celebrations, however, is grounded in supernatural religious beliefs that many people in modern society cannot accept. HumanLight presents an alternative reason to celebrate: a Humanist's vision of a good future. It is a future in which all people can identify with each other, behave with the highest moral standards, and work together toward a happy, just and peaceful world."

You can learn more about HumanLight on the web at

    Unfortunately, Suzie already sent out an announcement to the Gloucester County Times and the Camden Courier Post that the meeting is at Gloucester County Library. We told Bill Flynn at the meeting on Saturday, which you did not attend. We should keep the meeting as it was originally scheduled.

      Sorry guys, I had been in touch with Pat Colucci regarding the size of the room in Mullica Hill. We already have 12 RSVPs for the meeting and can't fit more people. I called the library and made the change to Glassboro in case more people RSVPd as a result of online promotion of the event. Maybe we can get the Mullica Hill library to put up a sign for us about the meeting being moved to Glassboro. Maybe the newspaper will edit the ad before the next printing? Either way, we needed a larger space for this event.

      November 5, 2013

      And I had no idea that a print ad was being discussed! Our regular turnout without advertising already packs the conference room. When we plan bigger events with more promotion, we need to make sure we're in a bigger location.
