Northshore Freethinkers
Finding no support/meeting group in my immediate area, I've decided to try & get one going myself.


Just launched http://www.facebook.com/nsfreethinkers - please go "like" the page!


I'm in the Northshore/St. Tammany Parish area of Louisiana, and trying to get "Northshore Freethinkers" off the ground. Looking to get Freethinkers, atheists, agnostics, skeptics and humanists together for social interaction, support, and a sense of community that the churchgoers get - without the religion! Social meetings, lunch gatherings, community service - whatever the people want to make of it.

If anyone has any constructive suggestions, please, don't hesitate. Thanks!!!

If not maybe this meetup site can work for you.

Thanks, Thomas. No, that isn't me; the meetup group is in New Orleans, which isn't really close enough to be convenient. Wish it was. It takes about an hour to get anywhere in NOLA from my house. I'm looking to do something closer to home, in my immediate community. Just have to find the people now!

Are you saying you have a swimming pool?

Appreciate the compassion (and sales pitch), KC, but I'm thinking I'll pass. Smile Half of my family is catholic, the other half baptist.
Our joke is that the catholics drink alcohol in church, the baptists drink it everywhere else. Wink

RE: Northshore Freethinkers - Update
We've got about a dozen people so far, and growing. Our first meet up is tomorrow for lunch at Copeland's on Hwy 190 in Covington, 11:30am.

Anyone else who wants to drop in, we'll find room for you!!!

Wow, a dozen so fast, I ever only found one around where I live. Maybe I will look harder next year. Not ready for something like that this year.

Let us know how it goes.
