We just wanted to send out a quick update on your southern kin, The Great Southern Humanist Society.
Tomorrow we'll again be participating in the annual American Cancer Society Relay For Life event supporting medical science in finding better treatment and a potential cure for cancer.
Here is our team website:Hearts (Humanist and Ethical Atheist Relief Teams) of the South
Additionally, as many already know, our Gulf Coast is now at risk due to the Oil Rig disaster that is now responsible for pumping sludge into our previously thriving coastal waters. Apparently, the "drill baby drill" mantra drowned out the calls for any sort of contingency plan in case something like this happened, so now BP is scrambling to shut off the assorted leaks and/or finding some way to reduce an epic disaster to mere Exxon Valdez levels.
In any event, we are gearing up for the clean up and hope y'all can do whatever you can to help bring attention to our cause for the greater good of the entire community here.
Thanks and we'll keep everyone up to date on our progress as best we can.

> To: [address removed]
> Date: Fri, 30 Apr[masked]:10:48 -0400
> I am proposing a project and need your feedback.
> The California State Parks are (as you may well know) underfunded and
> in need of volunteers to maintenance hiking trails: The trails attract
> visitors, interest in our wild lands, and may even contribute to
> increased preservation of California's natural habitats.
> If enough interest is generated I ( Cody Gorden) can organize a
> volunteer week-end for HASD in which we can get out and do some good
> work community.
> Camping is free for volunteers, begining on a Friday evening and
> ending Sunday afternoon. Showers are available, I'll even cook
> breakfast and make coffee for all the volunteers. By night we can have
> a BBQ and campfire singing (bring you own instrument).
> The work is hard and rewarding (There are also jobs for those who are
> interested but may not be physically able to do brush removal.) we
> would simply be clearing the brush off the trails after the equipment
> operators have cut it.The day begins at 8:00 am and usually ends
> around 1:pm. Volunteers may use hand tools such as saws, pitch-forks,
> and shovels (all provided, including safety equipment).
> This is a great opportunity for HASD to give back to the community and
> promote our cause.
> Please reply to this email if you are interested, you can also contact
> me ( Cody Gorden) via email [address removed] if you have any
> Thanks, I look forward to hearing from all of you,
