Earth existed long before Humans arrived on the scene and Earth will be here long after we’ve faded away. In the meantime, though, we can certainly make an effort to learn a thing or two about how we can better care for this place.
With that in mind, the Humanist Society of Iowa would like to invite you to join us on Thursday, the 21st of June at 7 PM for a presentation called ‘Reducing Plastic Trash in Our Environment’ to be given by our guest for the evening, Jenni Koska from Waste Management, to be held at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Channing Hall.
Though the subject of plastic waste is deadly serious where it concerns the oceans of our planet and the creatures living in them, we hope to have a bit of fun with the subject so that we can tackle such a serious problem in a memorable fashion.
The Humanist Society of Iowa is very excited to see how this new Thursday schedule will work compared to the previous Monday model, so we hope you will join us to help make it a success. If you have any questions or just want more information, please see our Facebook group, Humanists of Iowa. Or you can contact Gwen Harvey, our President by sending your inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org

For our annual Labor Day Picnic, the IAF has reserved the Biddle Rotary Shelter in Raccoon River Park in West Des Moines. The shelter is next to the Nature Lodge.
The IAF will provide the charcoal, plates, cups and utensils. Please bring a dish to share and something for yourself to grill. This is a family friendly event and the park offers many amenities including walking trail, playground and beach. Beer is allowed in cans only (no glass allowed).
We had no shortage of food at our Memorial Day Picnic but to help with variety please write in the comments below what you plan to bring for the potluck.
See you all there!
