Join the Mid-Ohio Atheists for their Annual Summer Picnic!

Join the Mid-Ohio Atheists at their regional annual picnic at Mohican State Park. They are inviting groups from all over Ohio, and have a special guest coming as well! It's a lot of fun, Mohican State Park is beautiful, and it's a good group of people. You can RSVP through their event page here:

Here are some highlights, including a great contest!:

Contest
Again this year we will have a contest that will benefit Harmony House, the homeless shelter in Mansfield. A representative of Harmony House said what they need the most, and what most people don't think to donate, is toilet paper, trash bags, and paper towels. So, the contest winner will be the one that brings the most of those three items. You can donate other things as well, but the contest will be decided on only the amount of toilet paper, trash bags, and paper towels that you bring. Prizes will be Mid Ohio Atheists tee shirts, buttons, and pens.
This is for a good cause and I hope we can collect lots of these items for Harmony House.

Games & Activities
We will have access to the Mohican river right beside the picnic area and many people like to just have fun in the water. We will also have several activities for children and adults, including corn hole and ladder ball.

Good Food
What would a picnic be without good food. We have already started the list of what foods people have volunteered to bring. You can see the list at our website. Email me at [masked] with the food(s) you will bring and I'll update the list. Feel free to bring anything you like even if it isn't on the list, or someone else already volunteered that item.

    This was a fun time! Good to see Ron, Michael and the crew from MOA (thanks for hosting!), and J.T. Eberhard was really cool. This was their highest attendance, they counted about 50 people total! Lots of good food, and met some cool new people!

    From Mid-Ohio Atheists: "As in previous years we will meet at the picnic area by the covered bridge. Once you are in the park, follow the signs to the covered bridge. We will have signs at the bridge showing where we are located. If it happens to be rainy that day, we have reserved a shelter that is near the bridge." Here is a Google map that shows a more precise location (zoom in): https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=213019830663760923958.0004c295ad1cf2ae98167&msa=0&ll=40.609913%2C-82.308884&s

    Wes, Marni & I may very well be staying in the area Saturday night, but not camping. I'll ask Michael A if he knows of anyone else who might be camping out, and if so I'll post the info here.
