May Meeting




Join us for our regular meeting,

The topic this month is “Humanist Celebration: Weddings, Memorials and Beyond...”


Our guest speaker is Han Hills, past President of the Humanists and Freethinkers of Cape Fear.

Han has been practicing Humanist celebrations since 2006 and is certified by the Humanist Society.

He also presents several podcasts on Atheist topics.

What is a Humanist ceremony, and without religion why do we need them in the community?

In this session Han Hills will lay out the background to this phenomenon and explain what a “Humanist Minister” does.

He will talk about the benefits and challenges of a Humanist ceremony and why we need them.

Across Europe the number of Humanist weddings and other community celebrations have rocketed in the past few years.

This year the number of Humanist weddings appeared to outstrip the number of ceremonies held by the Church of Scotland,

the county’s largest religious body.

Here in the U.S. the trend is already starting to follow suit.

Remain with us after the meeting for a pot-luck buffet dinner, and a raffle. Bring a covered dish and an item to donate for the raffle.

Soft drinks provided, BYOB  All proceeds help benefit our chapter.
