Speaker Series: William A. Zingrone, PhD.
Sunday, November 11th, 4:00 p.m.

We are pleased to have Bill Zingrone, PhD. Lecturer in Developmental Psychology, secular activist, and Illinois chairman of the Secular Coalition for America join us. Dr. Zingrone will discuss "Stone Tools and Concepts: From Spatial Relations to Human Relations."

OCTOBER SOCIAL GATHERING
Ten humanists joined us as we dined, drank, socialized and celebrated the change of seasons. We discussed the recent supreme court appointment and upcoming mid-term elections, and how we, as humanists, can get involved, make a difference and support our values. We also participated in “Socktober,” collecting donations of new socks, underwear and toiletries for our local area homeless shelter organization, Housing Forward. Details can be found here.

> actively working for non-theist interests
> participating in service to others

of rewards or punishment after you are dead."
