As human beings, living in this so-called free and secular nation, we have the ability and the right to question, examine and dissect all things religious, all things political, all things philosophical, all things cultural, even all things scientific.
Any attempts to silence freethought will only make us think louder!
This is Hessler's 50th anniversary year! Come enjoy the festivities. If anyone wants to be an event host, you can get a group together to meet and hang out. Please email me if you want to be an event host.
They are asking people to bring cash for food, etc., as not all vendors accept credit cards.
More info TBD.
For 29 years, the Cleveland Museum of Art has been bringing this FREE signature summer event to Greater Cleveland. University Circle comes alive with color, music, and art for all ages. International and national guest artists join Greater Cleveland artists, families, schools, and community groups in a spectacular display of bright costumes, giant puppets, stilt dancers, handmade masks, and colorful floats. Circle Village, which includes activities, entertainment, and food, is presented by University Circle Inc.
Parade the Circle is a day-long event that also sees the Wade Oval turn into what organizers call "Circle Village," which resembles a European outdoor market with vendors, food, kids' activities and, yes, beer. Huzzah!
Parking is hard to come by if you don't come early!! I'd recommend getting an Uber or Lyft and walking to our usual spot on the "grassy knoll" in front of the Natural History Museum.
Independence Branch of Cuyahoga County Public Library
It's been awhile since we did one of these... and this one will feature a an extra helping of science!
For the first hour or so, we'll have a nice communal lunch and chat. Bringing a food item - main dish, snack, dessert, or drink (non-alcoholic of course) to share is greatly encouraged, but not mandatory. Feel free to list what you're planning to bring in the comments below.
For the 2nd half, we will be treated to a presentation by avid fossil hunter (and former science teacher) Randy Pelton! Randy has made a number of trips to fossil-laden parts of the U.S. during the past couple of years (including areas such as Montana which often yield the remains of dinosaurs). He will be telling us about his excursions, and will provide plenty of pics.
Note about food items - we can't actually "cook" anything at the library, although there is a small kitchenette adjacent to the room. There will, however, be plenty of room on the food tables (and plugs) for crock pots, etc.
Hope to see you there! :)
Gals and Guys come on out to "think freely" while eating good food, catching up with friends and meeting new ones! This is a monthly Meetup, held primarily on the last Thursday of each month, but the day might change some months.
I will be getting there at about 6:45pm, so feel free to come early too if you like. Reservation will be under my name and "Cleveland Freethinkers." Hope to see you there!
