Open House/Welcome to Palo Alto University Party and Celebration

Party and Celebration

October 7, 2018

Please come to our first meeting at our Forums’ new “home” at Palo Alto University. This meeting will be an “Open house/Welcome to Palo Alto University” party and celebration to give everyone a chance to get to know this great new facility that our Sunday Forums will be held in for the foreseeable future.

This event will begin at 11am, but you can drop in anytime between 11am and at least noon, to chat with other Humanists, enjoy snacks and drinks (feel free to bring some!), and explore this great new facility.

Harrianne Mills, the Director of Academic Services at Palo Alto University, who also used to be involved in the HCSV Family Program, will be in attendance to answer any questions that you have about the facility. She is the person who is responsible for us being able to hold our Forums at Palo Alto University, so please thank her for doing that if you get a chance.

We hope to see you at our Forums’ new home!

No Forum this Sunday! Next Forum on Oct. 7th at Palo Alto University

No Forum this Sunday

September 30, 2018

Due to the efforts of many people to clear out all of our belongs from Humanist House by Sept. 30th (since then is the last day of our lease at Humanist House), no Forum will be held on Sept. 30th.

However, please come to our first meeting at our Forums’ new “home” at Palo Alto University on Sunday, Oct. 7th. This meeting will be an “Open house/Welcome to Palo Alto University” party and celebration to give everyone a chance to get to know this great new facility that our Sunday Forums will be held in for the foreseeable future.

This event will begin on Oct. 7th at 11am, but you can drop in anytime between 11am and at least noon, to chat with other Humanists, enjoy snacks and drinks (feel free to bring some!), and explore this great new facility.
