This upcoming week we will have three big events, all featuring famous atheist activist and President of the Atheist Alliance of America, Aron Ra!

Starting this Saturday December 17th at 1 PM, our December Monthly Gathering at Trini Mendenhall will feature Aron Ra and Lilandra, with presentations regarding Aron’s new book, the Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism. Limited numbers of Aron’s book will be available for purchase (and signing), though we recommend buying a book in advance if possible in order to ensure you get a copy.

Then later that night will be our annual Winter Solstice Party at Pub Fiction in Midtown (3rd Floor), and Aron & Lilandra will also be present and giving new presentations.

And finally, on Thursday December 22nd at Tracy Gee Community Center, Aron will be debating Subboor Ahmad of the London Dawah Movement on “Is Darwinian Evolution a Fact”?

All three events are free and open to the public.

Everyone who becomes an HOH member (or renews/extends their membership) between November 1st and December 17th is automatically entered into a drawing for a (very lightly-used) 40-inch LCD flat-screen TV, generously donated by HOH Board Member Julia Watts! This can be done easily at the Monthly Gathering or at the Solstice Party, or online HERE. The drawing for the winner of the TV will be held at the Solstice Party (you will not need to be present to win).

Also as usual we’ll be holding a fundraiser raffle of cool items at the Solstice Party, both humanist-related and non. If you have any items (or even services) you would like to donate for the raffle, please reply to this email or send us an email at humanistsofhouston@yahoo.com
