NYC ATHEISTS JULY 4TH BARBECUE!

Folksinger Ron Duncan & Open Mike

Every July 4th, fun-loving New York City Atheists climb aboard a Westchester-bound train to get away from the Big City for a day to feast, frolic and refresh ourselves far from the maddening crowds.

It has become an annual custom for NYCA members to visit our Chappaqua, NY friends, Dr. Eric Stone and Elaine Stone, leaders of the Westchester Atheist group, to celebrate the national holiday with our countrified colleagues.  The Stones open up their lovely home, with its huge grassy backyard, to Atheists for the barbecue buffet. We eat, chat, entertain each other, drink, eat some more and enjoy being Atheists together in a casual and relaxed atmosphere.

Open Mike!

We’re also continuing our tradition of having an open mike at the barbecue. This year, our favorite folk singer, Ron Duncan, will be there with his guitar to sing some of our favorite patriotic songs.

But everybody is welcome to go up to the mike just to say Hello or announce their engagement or tell a joke. You don’t need to be talented; you just have to want to share your inner Phyllis Diller, Rodney Dangerfield or Kate Smith! We applaud everybody just for being brave enough to go up to the mike.  It’s fun, and who knows, maybe Ricky Gervais started this way?

Get Your Annual Quota of Fame

Because time is limited and because we had so many eager performers last year, this year you’ll need to give your name to the Master of Ceremonies Larry Shaw, or his assistant, Jane Everhart, and have him call you for your 10 minutes of bucolic fame.  That’s fewer minutes of glory than the 15 minutes Andy Warhol promised everyone--but they weren’t aiming to catch the train back to Grand Central!
