First Friday Free-Up

Dear HWF members and friends,

The HWF FreeUp team is doing a little re-write of the plans for our first Friday meetup. Our speaker has had a family emergency come up. She’s ok and so is her family, but unfortunately she had to cancel. We hope to reschedule her at a later date.

The good news is, the FreeUp will still happen!

Our own Buz Ryland will give a presentation about humanism with some talk and videos. Join in on the conversation with discussion after Buz’s presentation.

See you Friday night, October 4, 5:45pm at Open Books Bookstore, 1040 N Guillemard St, Pensacola, FL 32501.

Humanists of West Florida president

OCTOBER SPEAKER: Bridget Gaudette from Humanists of Florida

These Free-ups will occur at least every other month and have a format that we will follow. When attendees arrive we will take 15 minutes of social time to get to know one another. Following our social a speaker or presenter will have a 20 minute “Free Talk”. Discussion on the presentation will be encouraged for the next 30 minutes and anyone interested in discussing the topic further is encouraged to go meet at another local establishment to continue the conversations.

These events are free but donations are accepted to cover the cost of the facility rental.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
