Saturday, October 22, 2016 - 9:45-12:00 PM: Beach Cleanup - Postponed to April 2017 due to inclement weather
We will again join with members of Red Bank Humanists and Madison Atheists to participate in Clean Ocean Action's annual Beach Sweep. Join us as we remove and record data about the garbage we find on Bradley Beach.
Let's gather at 9:45am. Our meeting place will be the Clean Ocean Action table at the Gazebo at 5th & Ocean Ave.
If you have trouble finding us, call Lisa Ridge (732-425-5233 cell). Parking is available on the street.
Please dress appropriately for the weather (including layers), wear hard-soled shoes, and bring gloves, a hat and sunscreen. If you've got your own trash picker device, bring it. You can bring your own water and snacks, but those are usually provided. Trash bags will also be provided. We're asked to stay off the dunes and always respect the wildlife.

Our November meeting will be a trip to the movies to see Loving, the historical drama about Richard and Mildred Loving, the plaintiffs in the 1967 U.S. Supreme Court decision Loving v. Virginia, which invalidated state laws prohibiting interracial marriage. The date, time and theater will be determined once the film is in full release after its limited opening on November 4th.

Widespread intellectual and moral docility may be convenient for leaders in the short term, but it is suicidal for nations in the long term. One of the criteria for national leadership should therefore be a talent for understanding, encouraging, and making constructive use of vigorous criticism.
- Carl Sagan
The lifestance of Humanism—guided by reason, inspired by compassion, and informed by experience—encourages us to live life well and fully. It evolved through the ages and continues to develop through the efforts of thoughtful people who recognize that values and ideals, however carefully wrought, are subject to change as our knowledge and understandings advance.
