Planned Parenthood Book Sale Setup

Volunteer Opportunity! Come support Planned Parenthood of the Heartland as they prepare for their annual fall book sale at the Fairgrounds 4-H building. The bulk of the work is unpacking boxes of books and arranging them on tables so please wear clothes and shoes that you can work in comfortably as you’ll be on your feet quite a bit. To find the 4-H Building, turn right from the main fairgrounds entrance off of E. 30th St and drive to the farthest building in that corner of the grounds. For security reason, volunteers are instructed to enter the building via the door on the SW corner, just to the right and around the way from the main entrance.

Don’t worry if you can’t make it out at 4:00 – just come when you can, there will be plenty to do. Planned Parenthood asks that all volunteers stay for a minimum of two hours but they understand that not everyone can meet this goal. Please do RSVP if you plan to attend so we can send a headcount to the Planned Parenthood Book Sale organizers. Thank you for volunteering!

Are You a Humanist?

Good without god(s)? Many of us are! Humanism is “the radical idea that you can be good without a god.” Let’s talk about it Sunday morning–after all, you weren’t going somewhere to worship a god, were you? Please join the Humanist Society of Iowa in this recurring bi-weekly series that will begin with an introduction to Humanism leading into a book discussion. The meetings will cover “Creating Change Through Humanism” by American Humanist Association Executive Director Roy Speckhardt. One of the most frequent (and tiresome) questions we receive is “Where do you get your morals?”. Humanism provides a very satisfying answer.

What makes a planet uninhabitable? Join Hannah Wakeford, a planetary scientist and Giacconi Fellow at the Space Telescope Science Institute, as she discusses our nearest neighbors in the solar system: Mars and Venus. By exploring our closest terrestrial worlds, we can understand what makes a planet habitable.

Join us after the presentation for a Star Party in our Demonstration Garden.
