We will hear from the ever-popular David Swenson on the topic, “I don’t believe it: The psychology of anti-vaxxers.” This presentation describes the current challenges to public health that these folks present, facts about the effectiveness of vaccination, the social and psychological roots of their beliefs, and recommendations for talking with them about the topic.
We are seeking donations to Second Harvest and/or volunteers to help out with their work. The Freedom From Religion Foundation will match our donations up to $1,000. You can scroll down to the PayPal link below to make a contribution and let Charles Gessert [firstname.lastname@example.org] know that you want it to go to the Second Harvest project. If you don’t have a lot of money to play with this year, you can still contribute. The group needs volunteers to work short shifts with fun people. You will do simple tasks like stuffing boxes with donated food and fill yourself up with the spirit of the Holiday Season. Wear your Lake Superior Freethinkers T-shirt and let the community see that we are good neighbors. Once again, contact Charles Gessert using email@example.com

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.
