Darwin Day Social

  • February 12, 2013 · 7:00 PM

You’re Invited -
Birthday Party and Darwin Day Celebration.

Humanists & Freethinkers of New Bern will gather for Darwin Day, an international celebration of science and humanity held on February 12, the day that Charles Darwin was born in 1809. Darwin Day celebrates the discoveries and life of the man who first described biological evolution via natural selection with scientific rigor. Darwin Day expresses gratitude for the enormous benefits that scientific knowledge, acquired through human curiosity and ingenuity, has contributed to the advancement of humanity.

In honor of Charles Darwin, you're invited to enjoy some social time with fellow humanists. We’ll have hors d’oeuvres and finger food enough for a meal and, of course, some cake and ice cream.

Bring the kids but there will not be a childcare provider.

Location is a private home and will be provided only to those who RSVP. Members who have attended monthly meetings were sent an email with details.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
