of rewards or punishment after you are dead."

End of the Line Humanists
is dedicated to:
What is Humanism?
Humanism is a progressive philosophy of life that, without supernaturalism, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity.
LIBRARY BOOK SALE VOLUNTEER DAYS
Thursday evening, July 27th, 7:00 - 9:30 p.m. AND
Saturday, July 29th, 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Oak Park River Forest High School Cafeteria
201 Scoville Ave., Oak Park
Oak Park Public Library needs volunteers to sort books and do assorted tasks in the weeks before its annual book sale at Oak Park River Forest High School (actual sale held Aug. 4th and 5th). End of the Line Humanists will work two shifts unpacking and sorting books, and cutting and arranging boxes (you can pretty much choose your task.) Join us for one shift or both, above. Enter at the main entrance and go straight back past the main stairway to the cafeteria and sign in. We'll be wearing our turquoise End of the Line Humanists t-shirts, so we'll be easy to find. If you have an ELH t-shirt, please wear it. BTW: If you work both shifts you will be eligible for a volunteer discount on books. :)
We usually go out for food and drink after the Thursday evening volunteer shift.
TRIVIA NIGHT at CONNOLLY’S
This event has been cancelled as Connolly's has gone out of business. Watch this space for something fun TBA.
2nd VOLUNTEER NIGHT for HOUSING FORWARD
Sunday, Aug. 20th, 6:00 p.m.
First United Church of Oak Park
848 Lake St., Oak Park
The second of two volunteer nights for Housing Forward. ELH will cook, bring and serve dinner for 15-18 at this summer transitional shelter for the homeless and dine with the recipients. So far we have members willing to donate the main course and a vegetable. We still need salad, bread, dessert, and drinks (juice and water), and perhaps another side dish. We had a great time at the first Housing Forward dinner, and found it very rewarding. RSVP is required to our Vice President James.Walter@va.gov so that we can coordinate the food, etc. Please email him that you're ready to help!
