Rockville Maryland Discussion Group

  • Jan 10, 2014 · 8:00 PM
  • Robert Ahrens' home

Our discussion groups are now on the first Friday of the month in general. For this January it is changed to the second Friday.

Robert Ahrens as usual will be hosting this meeting. The meeting will start at 8 pm. People may arrive as early as 7:30 so that we can actually start at 8 pm. Please bring a small contribution of food and/or drink to be shared with the group. The home is in Rockville near Viers Mill and Aspen Hill Road. Transport to and from the Twinbrook Metro stop can be arranged if needed.

Mr Ahrens address and phone numbers are not posted here to preserve the privacy of his home. Those details will be emailed the week of the meeting to those who are coming (see note below). Affirmative RSVPs should be posted before 8 pm the prior Thursday to allow time to notify all attendees.


Note: an occasional problem with Meetup emails is that some spam filters will preclude delivery of Meetup email. If you RSVP Yes and want the email informing you of a meeting held in a private home this can be a problem. To prevent this a member can add [masked] to their personal email addresses. If a member does not receive the directions to a Friday meeting by late Tuesday evening he/she needs to directly contact to the organizer. Use the Meetup option for this. A phone call to[masked] leaving your email address is another option. Posting a comment saying that you did not receive the directions (without including your personal email address) is not helpful since if your spam filter stopped the first email it will also stop subsequent email. We want people to be comfortable in opening up their homes to other meetup members and this technical difficulty is a small price to pay to preserve the privacy of those who host events in their homes.

    I am so sorry I cannot come tonight and I was looking so forward to it. I unfortunately have to paint my office this weekend and won't be able to get away. I will see everyone next month. I truly miss seeing everyone. Have a great month!!!

    two quick questions. do participants bring anything to eat/drink? and are the discussion meetups focused on a particular topic or humanist issue?

      As Tom said: we typically get a good range of munchies and potables. Real food is always welcomed and popular. We often pick a topic but out discussions flow freely even if we start with a topic. I just sat for a video at the Wesley Theological Seminary. A report on that might be a good way to start our Friday meeting.

    Munchies and/or potables are always welcome. We sometimes have a topic but don't necessarily keep to it. I prefer the free flowing discussions myself.
