Attended Display at the Old Loudoun County Courthouse, Leesburg, VA

Unattended displays on the Courthouse grounds are no longer allowed except for those sponsored by the Board of Supervisors per the linked article. http://m.leesburgtoday.com/mobile/news/board-finalizes-holiday-display-atheist-leader-received-two-month-permit/article_472aaaec-2917-11e2-a86c-0019bb2963f4.html


We're setting up 2 hour shifts from 10:00AM to 4PM and will read from appropriate books (such as Origins of Species and Letter to a Christian Nation) with our banners and a podium to provide support and visuals.

Come join us. Obviously a good size crowd will help to get across our message that the Courthouse is not a church.

WHEN YOU REPLY PLEASE LET US KNOW WHAT TIME YOU CAN BE THERE. We really want to avoid having one person standing on their own and the permit is for 20 people at a time.

We'll also be doing this on future Saturdays leading up to the winter holidays if you can't make this Saturday, so please watch for more meetups. BUT this is the kickoff and we'd like to make a statement so please come out of you can, when you can.

    It is great to see such positivity from the community towards us. Even though the board of supervisors and the grounds committee is trying to silence our free speech... the community supports us broadly.

    I had a great time doing this! I was surprised at the number of people driving by that gave us a honk and a thumbs-up! Rick's readings are h-i-l-a-r-i-o-u-s and Ellen's enthusiasm is infectious! Looking forward to the next one!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
