July Freethought Picnic

During the summer months, the MN freethought community holds a monthly picnic open to anyone who wants to hang out with us: Humanists of MN, Camp Quest families, the U of MN campus freethought group (CASH) and MN Atheists.  The picnic is on--rain or shine. (It's a big shelter.)

We especially invite parents, children, youth and others to participate in a family sing-along at this picnic.  We’ll sing songs for the very young, Camp Quest favorites for children and youth, and freethought anthems.  Our Freethought Picnic songbook has lyrics for fifty songs for participants to choose from, and accompaniment is provided.

This is an all-ages event!  There will be lots of friendly people, a play area for the kids, lively discussions for the adults, plenty of room for group games, and a sing-a-long for the musically inclined.  Or, bring a frisbee or other favorite lawn games for the physically active.

The July picnic is sponsored by Humanists of Minnesota. With the All-star conference the day before, we expect to have some of the speakers on Saturday join us at Sunday's picnic.  We'll welcome Rebecca Watson (Skepchics) and Debbie Goddard (CFI) as our guests.

      We handed out some picnic flyers at the Aints game, so maybe that's where some of the new people came from.

    I don't do summer outside if I can help it. Mosquitos love me too much!

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