Summer Day Out at the Park - Potluck Picnic - FOOD Update

Hey everyone - just a reminder that GWH will be providing burgers, veggie burgers, & dogs as well as napkins, plates, flatwear, and condiments.  Following is a list of items that people have signed up to bring (so far):

Soda & Iced Tea (1 person)

Couscous Lentil Salad

Green Salad (2 people)

Meat Casserole

Homemade Ice Cream (some vegan)


If you want to add something to this list just post a message. We look forward to seeing everyone on June 22nd!

Every year, the Greater Worcester Humanists get together to get some sun and have a cookout!  We have burgers, hot dogs, veggie burgers for the morally superior, and lots of side dishes and wonderful desserts from the membership's fine chefs.

Then, once we are all plump and satisfied, there's more time to get some sun and play outside. We have lively sessions of volleyball, frisbee, cricket, and whatever else we an find enough people to play. or, you can just sit back, soak it all in, and chat with friends.

This year's outing will be at a new location - Dean Park in Shrewsbury.  We will be in the North Pavilion, near the kids playground and basketball courts.  There is parking and near the North Pavilion.  We also reserved the volleyball court for those with lots of extra energy!

The date is Sunday, June 22nd from 10:30 AM to 2:30 PM.  We would love for you to bring your whole family as this is also our most kid-friendly event, so bring them along!

So, we hope to see you all there - this event is free and open to members and non-members alike. This is also a great introductory event so feel free to invite that guy in the office who always asks about Humanism, or that friend who's been talking about wanting to hit a meeting.

Please help make the event great by volunteering.  As the event approaches we will be sending requests for dishes.  If you can't make the meeting and want to contribute, please feel free to contact us at [masked].

We hope to see you and your family there!!  Please indicate what you are bringing in your RSVP - thanks!

    Brenda and I need to beg out of the picnic. We’ve had a busy time with a funeral this weekend and there will be one more chance on Sunday to visit with family from far away before they leave.
