You Are Not Alone!
Hold on to your hats, people! Spectacular Secular September is hitting Manitoba!!
The Humanists, Atheists and Agnostics of Manitoba are thrilled to announce that August 23rd will mark the beginning of our “You Are Not Alone” campaign.
From August 23rd to 25th, we’re holding an outreach event in the heart of Manitoba's Bible Belt, the Morden Corn & Apple Festival. The festival is the largest in southern Manitoba, and we’re excited to spend three days chatting with people of varying backgrounds and viewpoints – believers, nonbelievers and those on the fence. It’s great conversation all around.
September 2nd. Winnipeg city transit buses will hit the streets with our month long bus advertising campaign. We don’t think there’s anything controversial with stating “Don’t Believe in God? You are not alone.” on the side of a city bus. Do you?
(UPDATE: WE WON'T BE AT THIS EVENT, AS WE WERE NOT ACCEPTED TO PARTICIPATE IN MANYFEST. Sorry for the misinformation) September 6th to 8th. It’s “Manyfest, All Together Downtown”. This is Winnipeg’s largest street festival and we’ll be there yakking it up. Look for our booth and say Hi.
September 10th. Please join us for “Straight Talk on Dying”, featuring a presentation by Arthur Schafer, renowned Canadian Ethicist. This event goes from 7 pm to 9 pm at Riverview Community Center, 90 Ashland Avenue in Winnipeg. This is a HAAM supported event; however, it is organized and brought to you by Dying with Dignity Canada.
September 14th. SkeptiCamp Winnipeg 2013 will be Winnipeg's fourth open skeptical conference! It’s free and open to the public. The Winnipeg Skeptics are dear friends of ours. We have much in common, with an overlap in our membership and our beliefs. The conference starts at 10am and runs until 5 pm. The location is still TBA, so check back for the details.
September 21st. Our first general meeting after summer break. 5:30 pm at the Canad Inn Polo Park. Our guest presenter will be motivational speaker and HAAM member, Scott Burton. Scott will talk to us about “Finding goodness, how a simple idea can bring a community together”.
For those who haven’t heard of Scott, he is the guy who got it in his head to raise money for a local charity... so he decided to run for 24 hours straight. He ended up being one of Tensor’s Heroes and being lauded in the legislature for his efforts. Should be a great meeting.
If you’ve ever thought about checking us out, now’s the time. Come out and say hello!
