Freethought Picnic w/MN Humanists, Sunday, July 17, noon, Columbia Park, Mpls

  • July 17, 2011 · 12:00 PM
  • Columbia Park

This is the second of three summer picnics for all of us atheists and humanists (the July picnic is sponsored by Minnesota Humanists). There's a great playground for kids, a basketball hoop, fields for ultimate frisbee, soccer, bocce ball and other games, and a picnic area for dining, board games, and lots of conversation!

The picnic is a potluck. Please bring some edibles to share. The shelter has electricity and a sink.

Families: in your RSVP, please mention the ages of your children

Athletes (all levels): please tell us what sport you prefer so we can get a game going

Board gamers: please let us know what games you enjoy and any you can bring

Musicians: please mention which musical instrument you plan to bring for an impromptu jam

    The heat is here, if you like it could be held here in Eden Prairie with central air.

    Some fried chicken or a fruit pie from a grocery store might be nice.

    Yes, absolutely one of the best events to come to for a first-timer.

    Well I haven't been to an event yet, and this seems like a good one to make my first.

    Are you able to edit the title of the event to say July instead of June?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
