Join us online for another happy hour gathering and get ready to hear Fred Friedman address the Lake Superior Freethinkers on December 6th via Zoom. Watch this space for more information, and for the correct Zoom link! See you then.
Social Luncheon via ZOOM! That’s right. For the first time, we will try meeting in the afternoon instead of the evening. We will Zoom in at 1:00 pm to share some laughs and great company. It’s no longer safe to go outside and gather in person, at least for a while. So, out of respect for others in our community and out of an abundance of caution, we will gather online instead of at the planned venue. Here is a link to use at 1:00 pm on Wednesday the 18th.
This month, we gather live and in person at the home of Our Flounder, Dr. Bill vanDruten. The weather should be mild, and there is a fire pit to keep us warm as we talk and laugh and share some Happy Hour drinks and fellowship. Don’t miss this; it may be a long time before we can gather safely in person again. Thursday, November 5th, 4:00-6:00 pm. 2931 Greysolon Road. Park anywhere on Greysolon Road but not on 30th Avenue.
Fighting for Secularism in Minnesota
Don’t forget to set your clocks back one hour!
Staff attorney Ryan Jayne will discuss some of the efforts by the FFRF (Freedom From Religion Foundation) defending the Establishment Clause. He will dive into 2020 Minnesota legislation pertaining to religious intrusion into public policy, present a refresher on historical legal challenges to the Establishment Clause, and give us a glimpse into likely challenges in the near future.
Ryan will make himself available for a Q&A session following his presentation.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CLYDE IRON!
The original Clyde Iron Works opened in Glascow, Scotland in 1786. It later developed the “hot blast” process that greatly increased the efficiency of smelting iron. But the one in Duluth was founded on October 21, 1889 (even if the name Clyde Iron Works wasn’t adopted until two years later). So, as we break bread together at 5:30 pm on Wednesday, October 21, we will be helping the local venue celebrate its 131st birthday. Bring a festive mood and perhaps a spooky costume as we spend quality time with high-quality people.
