Morgantown Atheists are hosting the second annual WV ASH Bash in September 2014.
It is an open social event focused on developing connections between secular groups and people of all kinds across the state of West Virginia and the surrounding areas. All secular individuals and groups are invited to attend. We will have a speaker, Fred Edwords, from the National Coalition of Reason, and music, TBA.
Our goal is to get better acquainted with other secular groups across the state, and share an afternoon of fun, music, ideas, and fellowship.
The event will be held at the pavilion at Dorsey’s Knob in Morgantown, West Virginia. It will be a potluck lunch, with a charcoal grill available to cook on, so please bring a favorite food dish or dessert and beverage to share.
Fred Edwords will be our speaker. Fred is the national director of the United Coalition of Reason. He has more than 37 years of experience in Freethought leadership at both the local and national levels. He has served as president of the Humanist Association of San Diego, executive director of the American Humanist Association, and president of Camp Quest. He will be giving a 20 minute presentation on the topic ‘Building Our Community For Action: how can we crystallize the mission and goals of our community, deal with classic problems, and organize for more effective activism?’
This interactive presentation will provide proven techniques for strengthening our groups and improving secular social bonding toward the aim of increasing our power and influence, followed by a question and answer session.
Kids are welcome, and there is a playground and some short hikes available, as well as a disc golf course.
We look forward to seeing you there!
