    Kris, You missed a good program today, but the Humanists of Portland have many more informative and interesting programs coming up. Also, starting October 13 at 11:45, an 8 week class will be starting on a Humanist approach to achieving happiness. We welcome your attendance at any of our programs. We hope to meet you soon.

    I live only several doors from Friendly House but had a last minute emergency of sorts and didn't want to arrive late. Sincere apologies for the no-show and I hope to attend my first HGP meeting in the very near future.
