Subject: [PeoriaHumanistSocie­ty] On we roll merrily along...

Hi, everyone. I'm Bill Poorman, the co-organizer of the Peoria Humanist Society Meetup group, along with Todd. 

First, many thanks to Todd for his service in keeping the group going after our founder, Richard Humphrey, moved to California! 

Second, where do we go from here? 

I don't think much has changed from when we last had this discussion several months ago. We have three choices: 

    1. Be a social group. 
    2. Be an activist organization. 
    3. Be both. 

I think we'll also eventually need to resolve the whole issue of humanist vs. atheist vs. agnostic vs. freethinker vs. skeptic vs. etc., but in the short run, I believe we need to simply stick together no matter what label we personally choose. 

I'm willing to schedule a meeting to discuss our direction from here, but I need help. 

I happen to know that the Copper River coffee house on War Memorial in Peoria has a private meeting space that can be reserved. Someone please step up and look into available times and dates. 

Tuesday evenings seemed to work pretty well for many people. To accommodate my schedule, I would prefer the 13th or 27th of September. 

Thanks to all of you for making this group a success so far. Here's to the future!
