Tulsa Atheist Rendezvous

Tulsa Atheist Rendezvous grew out of the Atheists Meetup group in Tulsa, Oklahoma. We seek to provide an opportunity for those who self-identify as atheists to meet with one another for fellowship and to discuss matters of mutual interest. --Dan Nerren, moderator

ALGAE Luncheon

Question: What HAT member hopped a freight train back in 1934 in order to be able to go to Chicago and see the World’s Fair? Answer: It was Howard Kelley. This was the first of many freight train rides Howard took back in the days of his youth. Howard entertained us with stories of riding the rails at today’s ALGAE luncheon.

In addition to Howard there was Larry, Dana, Julia, Mary, Gail, Jan, and myself. It was good to see so many friends once again. Other topics of discussion included the book The DaVinci Code, the book Who’s Who in Hell, church camps and homesickness, the Girl Scout camp murders, authors and geographical places associated with them, the treatment of books, Civil War markers and monuments, and The Hobo’s Hornbook.

If you missed the gathering today, you will have an opportunity to be with your humanist friends this Sunday, 1:00 PM, at Hardesty Library.

See you there.

Financial matters

We received a contribution of $100 back in April to restart Tulsa Atheists Meetup. The fee for each group to be associated with meetup.com is $12 per month. The organizer has to come up with this amount in order to continue to use the services of meetup.com. There is no fee for individuals to be a part of a meetup group.

I paid for six months, or $72, thanks to our anonymous donor. This leaves $28 to be applied to the following six-month period. So around October, we will need to come up with another $72, or $44 in addition to what we now have on hand.
