Humanlight/Solstice Celebration

Join us at the Secular Hub and the Exdo Center (across the street from the Hub), for a celebratory collaboration of multiple local groups including the Secular Hub, Humanists of Colorado, Freedom From Religion Foundation, Denver Atheists, and Boulder Atheists. The evening's various activities are open to everyone from 4:00 PM to 10:00 PM, and include the following:
4:00 - Appetizer Potluck at the Hub, sponsored by the Humanists of Colorado. Bring something not too heavy, because dinner will take place across the street later. Feel free to attend even if you do not bring a dish to share, because other activities will be taking place.

4:00 - 10:00: Concessions at the Hub, including beer, wine, and seasonal alcoholic drinks.

4:30 - 8:30 Silent Auction at the Hub. There will be a large variety of items for bid. Proceeds will go to the Secular Hub, host for the evening and the crucial supporting organization for local secular groups.

5:00 Book Exchange at the Hub. This is a tradition of the HOC's annual HumanLight celebration, held on the Solstice. Bring a book or three to share, receive books in return. Secular-themed books are popular but not required.

5:30 Quote Exchange at the Hub. This is another tradition of the Humanist Light celebration. Bring a favorite quote and read it when your turn comes - or recite it from memory to impress everybody.

6:00 Dinner seating begins at the Exdo Center across the street from the Hub. We will work out a priority scheme, probably based on time of arrival at the Hub. Menu and prices to be posted soon.

6:00 - 10:00 The Exdo Center will also be serving drinks all evening.

8:30 (or so) The Silent Auction will draw to a close. Bring your checkbook or credit card and pick up your items on the spot!

8:30 (or so) Dessert Potluck at the Hub.

9:00 (or so) Pale Blue, the house band of the Hub, will perform a set at the Exdo Center.

10:00 Last call at the Hub; the Exdo Center closes.

In summary, show up anytime between 4:00 and 10:00.  Bring, optionally, an appetizer for the potluck, a dessert for the potluck, a book or more to exchange, a quote to read, some money for drinks and dinner., and some money or a checkbook for the silent auction.

Additionally, the Hub is holding a canned food drive right now for Food Bank For the Rockies.  Clean out your cabinets on your way here!

Finally, bring a friend, and have fun!

      No entrance fee - but cash desirable for various reasons, such as dinner, drinks, silent auction, etc.
