    For our May book group meeting, we are reading "Educated" by Tara Westover. This memoir recalls her journey from growing up among isolated survivalists in Idaho to earning a PhD from Cambridge University. Join us on the fourth Sunday of each month at the West Ashley Barnes & Noble store for discussions of important topics of interest to SHL members. You can see a list of our previous readings here (http://lowcountryhumanists.org/default.php?page=booklist) and our the list of books we are considering for future Book Club meetings here (http://lowcountryhumanists.org/SHLBookClubListofPotentialReads.pdf).

  • SHL At Reggae Nights

    James Island County Park - green space near the playground

    No Happy Hour this month. I thought it would be nice for us to get outside and take in some culture while we are at it. The Reggae Nights Summer Concert Series at James Island County Park features traditional old school roots reggae with a new school attitude in a beautiful outdoor setting. Bring your chairs or blanket. Food trucks and beverages will be on site. This is fun for everyone. Old, young.......... A family event!

  • September Volunteer Activity: Adopt - a - Highway

    Grove Corner Grocery parking lot

    SHL's adopted highway is Azalea Drive from the SC-7 exit to the King Street Extension in North Charleston, which runs past the Lowcountry Foodbank. From I-26 in either direction, take Exit 216B. At the corner with first stop light is a small store called Grove Corner Groceries. We have permission to park in their parking lot. Picking up trash at the side of the road is a lot more fun than it sounds. We enjoy each other's company and conversation. It is a pleasant walk in the fresh air. And we usually find some interesting items. As always, participants get a sense of accomplishment from making the world a better place and enjoy a chance to talk as we walk. We also have a sign put up by the Dept. of Transportation there that says that the road is kept clean by “Secular Humanists,” which helps us let people know that our group exists and that we care about our community. SHL will provide the necessary supplies, including trash bags, gloves, and reflective vests. Please join us if you can. If you have any questions, please feel free to email our volunteer coordinators ([masked]).
