Weekly Announcements 9/22

Freethinkers! Hope your first round of tests (if you’re an undergrad) isn’t hitting you too hard. Here are the Freethinker’s events for this week.


Tuesday, Sept. 24 from 7:00-8:30pm: This week’s meeting will be a general discussion meeting, with focus on rape-culture and sexism, both in general society, and within the secular movement itself. We will be meeting in room 341 of Squires Student Center. Here’s a link to the event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/632272110140044/

Wed, Sept. 25 at 8:00pm: The Secular Support Group will be meeting this week in Room 234 of Squires Student Center. This is a more private, mellow, and laid back group conversation than what you’ll be able to find at the regular Freethinkers Meeting. The general body meetings are great for guest speakers, educational workshops, good lively discussion, and even a heated debate or three. But if you want a safe space to explore ideas you may not yet have fully formed, or you’re seeking some advice about how to share your ideas with friends and loved ones who do not share those views, then please join us!

Thursday, Sept. 26 at 7:00pm: There’s a group of us that go climbing at Crimpers Climbing Gym in Christiansburg. It’s a lot of fun as well as a good workout. It costs $14 to rent shoes and climb for the night. Here’s a link to their website: http://www.crimpersclimbing.com/

Friday, Sept. 27 from 11:00am-12:30pm: Friday morning, the Breakfast Club will be meeting again in the large first floor dining hall in Turner Place. This week the discussion topic is politics. As always, find the group by looking for the person in the magenta(pink) hat. Here’s a link to the page for the Breakfast Club: https://www.facebook.com/groups/freebreakfast/

Sunday, Sept. 29 at 2:00pm: If you can’t go climbing on Thursday (or can, and want to go again) come climb at Crimpers on Sunday!

Sunday, Sept. 29 at 5:00pm: Our exec. group will be meeting in Squires Student Center near Au Bon Pan. In order to allow more time at meetings for discussion, we will be meeting Sunday to handle the business our club needs to organize. Everyone is invited to come and participate. It’s a great way to play a part in the workings of the club and gain leadership experience.

Friday, Oct. 4th from 7:00-9:00pm: This is just a head’s up, but next Friday, we will be having our First Friday of the Month Event. We will be watching a documentary, but a specific one hasn’t been decided on… That’s up to you! Keep an eye out on the Facebook page for a poll in which you can vote on what you want to see.
