Our mission is to do good deeds, establish a sense of fellowship and community for the nonreligious, and to promote secular education and activism. Through doing good deeds, we aim to inspire people to do good for the sake of good. We foster a community of compassionate and rational individuals whose ethical behavior is not dependent upon belief in the supernatural. We support equality and fair treatment of all and promote humanism as a viable worldview. We welcome collaboration with others with an understanding that good deeds can be universally appreciated and respected.
We are an official chapter of the American Humanist Association and are located in Grand Junction, Colorado. We typically have one educational event, one social event, one volunteer event and one outdoor event (hiking, etc.) every month.
Choose any book, short story, comic, article or whatever else you might want to read or have read in the past and come and discuss it with the group. We constantly find new material to read as we talk to one another about what we've read. Even if you haven't managed to read something recently, please feel welcome to join us. You may also bring any food or non-alcoholic drink you might wish to enjoy during the discussion.
This loop is rated easy with not much up and down. Sunset Lake is in the Mesa Lakes Area of the Grand Mesa National Forest near Grand Junction, Colorado. Here is a link to GJHikes' description. https://www.gjhikes.com/2014/02/sunset-lake-nordic-loop.html
There are restrooms at the parking area and we may go for hot chocolate afterward at the lodge or down in Mesa. Bring the usual layers of clothes, and water, sunscreen, binos, and camera. NOTE THIS IS NOT THE LAST SUNDAY OF THE MONTH, BUT FEB. 3. To get to Jumbo Lakes parking lot, go south on Hwy 65 about 13 miles from Mesa, and turn right into the lot (the sign says Mesa Lakes Recreation Area).
