PhillyCoR 7th Annual Unity Picnic 2013

The Philadelphia Coalition of Reason (PhillyCoR) is sponsoring their 7th annual Unity Picnic on Sunday July 28 from 1-5 P.M. The gathering of the nine greater Philadelphia non-theist groups will take place at the Fort Washington State Park’s Flourtown Pavilion in Flourtown, PA.

This year, PhillyCoR welcomes Rachael Berman, the American Humanist Association’s Grassroots and Celebrant Program Coordinator who will be handing out the AHA's first ever “Humanists Making a Difference Award” to a member of our own community.

The Philadelphia Coalition of Reason is an umbrella organization for nine local groups: The Ethical Humanist Society, The Freethought Society, The Humanist Association of Greater Philadelphia, Atheist Meetup, Drexal Freethought, Temple Atheists and Critical Thinkers, Penn State Atheist Agnostic Association, Rekindle Reason: Atheists Agnostics and Freethinkers of UPenn, and West Chester University Secular Student Alliance.

The Unity Picnic focuses on uniting atheists, agnostics, humanists, freethinkers, rationalists, and skeptic from around the Philadelphia area. You don’t need to be a member of any organization to attend the picnic.

There is a minimum donation of $10.00 per adult (kids 12 and under are free) to cover the cost of burgers, hot dogs, and vegetarian alternatives for the grill, as well as buns and beverages. People are also expected to bring a side dish. If your last name begins with:

A-G bring salad or vegetable
H-P bring fruit or dessert
Q-Z bring bread, potato or rice dish

There will be games and activities for children. Please RSVP! That way we can estimate how much food and beverages to purchase. Contact [email protected]
