Many thanks to all those Brights Meetup members who donated to the annual Mercury News Gift of Reading Children’s Book Drive at our dinner this past Tuesday. This is our second year of participation and members donated almost $100 to this worthy cause that gives books to needy children during the Holidays. After our meeting, four stalwart members descended on the nearby Barnes and Noble and selected our gift books. Needless to say, we favored those of free-thought and nature based themes. Included was author Kurt Vonnegut and books on dinosaurs and how things work. Books for children of ages from 3 to 16 were included in our selections. We had a great time making our choices.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at our next event with the Bay Area Russell Set Meetup Group on December 20. Also, don’t forget our Christmas Day Meetup featuring games and a potluck.
