What we're about

Welcome to the Stockton Area Atheists and Freethinkers!

We are a group of non-believers that focuses on community involvement, social events, education and information, and activism.

Most of our meetings are held in San Joaquin County, from Lodi to Manteca -- though we occasionally join efforts with our friends in Modesto, Sacramento, and the Bay Area.

We have a number of repeating events, including "Drinking Skeptically", game night, brunch, highway cleanup, colloquium, and more.

The Stockton Area Atheists and Freethinkers has no monthly dues, and no mandatory attendance. We're just looking for like-minded people who believe in good.

Be sure to follow us on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/StocktonAtheists), too.

Game Night (Stockton)

Andy's home

Game Night (Stockton), is hosted by Sarah at Andy's home in Stockton (near March and I-5) on the fourth Tuesday of every month. Don't worry about formalities. Just show up when you can and leave when you've had enough fun. We typically play games like Geek Battle, Linkee, That's What She Said, Cards Against Humanity, and Midnight Taboo. Got your own game? Bring it! Potluck Too It's also a bit of a potluck, so feel free to bring some drinks, snacks, or desserts to share with others. Hint: Most of us are vegetarian. Adults Only For their safety, please keep the little ones at home.

First Friday Dinner and Ice Cream (Lodi)

Dancing Fox Winery

For our Lodi socialites, join us the first Friday of each month as we enjoy dinner and ice cream in Downtown Lodi. Each evening is a combination of: • a dinner starting at the lovely Dancing Fox restaurant (great for vegetarians, vegans, and beer and wine lovers), followed by • a stroll through Downtown Lodi's several art galleries, on our way to • the Double Dip Art Gallery, featuring Gunther's Ice Cream and an always-changing gallery of wonderful art This event is in conjunction with the Lodi Arts Commission's monthly First Friday Art Hop. This is a casual, easy-going event that is great for our new and returning members. Come join us!

Highway Cleanup and Brunch (Lodi)

Hollywood Family Café

We're going to clean up CA-99 (northbound, between Kettleman and Turner)! We'll meet first at 8:00 AM at the Hollywood Family Café to split into smaller groups, review safety procedures, and equip supplies. Then we'll head to Highway 99 to clean up trash for about 2 hours, then head back to the restaurant for brunch. We do this on the first Saturday of February, April, June, August, October, and December. To participate, please RSVP so that we may follow-up with you and watch this safety video (http://adopt-a-highway.dot.ca.gov/CT_Adopt-a-Hiwy%20Vid_pt2.wmv). No tools are required! Caltrans has provided gloves, trash bags, grabbers, and helmets. You may want to bring a bucket (for trash, easier to use than bags) and a water bottle. You must wear jeans and close-toed shoes. RAIN OR SHINE. If it rains, we'll have brunch first and clean up after if the rain has cleared. Participants must be 16 or older. Sorry kiddos, safety first. Questions? Call David at[masked]
