    Excellent banquet. Dale McGowan was an excellent speaker and gave a very uplifting talk about the future of humanism and how to attract more folks with excellent background on the past and very positive comments about the new generation coming up. Really energizing!
    Freethought band did a great job filling in with a number of their regulars unavailable.
    A group met in the bar afterwards for more talk.
