Stone Salad Celebration - All are welcome!
Come to join us for our annual Stone Salad celebration. This fall tradition brings members, friends, and our community together to give thanks by sharing a meal we create together. All are welcome, check out the video for more information and the instructions for what to bring below. Hope to see you there! Stone Salad will take place on Sunday, November 18, 2018, at Green Hedges School starting at 11:00 am. Please bring the following salad items, based on the first letter of your last name: • A-M, please bring salad add-ins such as avocado, carrots, beans, nuts, celery, pasta, fruits, veggies, cheese, etc. NO MEAT, PLEASE. If you are bringing foods that cause allergies, we will ask you to leave them in their containers and put them on the table so that people can add them in if they want. • N-Z please bring washed and chopped/torn salad greens. In addition to salad items please bring additional items based on the first letter of your last name: • A-C please bring salad dressings. • D-L please bring breads and spreads. • M-Z please bring desserts. If you love to cook, you can also bring a crockpot of soup. We'll have power strips to plug it into to stay hot. Again, we'd prefer vegetarian soups. Our charity is Food For Others.: All non-perishable food is welcome but they especially need peanut butter, tuna, other canned meats, pastas and rice.

What we're about

Maybe you're one of those people who sits in a church pew on Sundays thinking to themselves, "I don't believe a word of this." Or perhaps you've checked out of the dogma arguments altogether, avoid church or temple and just to try living a good, decent life. Or maybe you don't believe in god but instead seek an ethical path consistent with your understanding of the universe.

If any of those sound like you, we should meet! We're the Northern Virginia Ethical Society, a congregation composed of people unified by a simple faith: we want to make the world a little bit better. Founded in the 19th Century, Ethical Societies believe that bringing out the best in others brings out the best in themselves as well. We also believe in science, reason, and you. We don't focus on an afterlife or final judgment: our duty is to the living, and to the future generations who will follow us.

Northern Virginia Ethical Society meets on Sunday at 11:00 a.m. from September to June. These meetings, which we call platforms, usually consist of a talk by an expert on a topic of interest to Ethical Humanists. While you're enjoying the platform, your child can attend Sunday School, which teaches them a humanist approach to living. Our Sunday School is offered without charge.

Our meetings take place at the Green Hedges School, 415 Windover Avenue, NW, Vienna, VA 22180. For driving directions and more information about NoVES, please visit the website, http://www.noves.org . We are also on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/ethicalsociety .
