Coming Society Events
Creative Writers Group
Sunday, February 19, 12:15pm
We meet after the Sunday morning program in the upstairs conference room on the third Sunday of every month. Newcomers are always welcome to share their short, original works. Our next meeting is on Sunday, February 19.
February 25, and March 25, 10:30am
A series of Saturday morning talks and conversations exploring Ethical Humanism, our history, motivations, and beliefs. On February 25th, Tom Hoeppner will lead us in discussing the history of the Ethical Culture/Humanist movement and our Society's crucial role. We'll begin with coffee and snacks.
March 4, 6 - 9pm
Game Night is the first Saturday of each month.
Fiction Circle Discussion

Sunday School Parents Meeting
Sunday, March 12, 12:15pm
All our families are encouraged to attend these meetings to see what's coming up in the Sunday School and how you can help! We meet on the 2nd Sunday of every month at 12:15pm.
Film Discussion Group
Monday, March 13, 7:15pm
The movies for this month are "I Am Not Your Negro," an incendiary snapshot of James Baldwin's crucial observations on American race relations—and a sobering reminder of how far we've yet to go. And, "Patterson," a quiet observation of the triumphs and defeats of daily life, along with the poetry evident in its smallest details. (Patterson has been held over from last month.)
Saturday, March 18, 10am
The EHS Women’s Group will meet at Curt’s Café, 2922 Central St. in Evanston, for coffee and conversation. No reservation needed. Just come as you are. For more information, please see Curt’s Café at www.curtscafe.org.
Ethnic Dinner Out

• Historical records of the society (1882-1980) are available to the public at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). The Society donated its papers to the UIC library over 30 years ago. Items in the collection include minutes, correspondence, membership lists, speeches, photos, and newspaper clippings. For an inventory of the collection, follow this link: ethicalhumanistsociety.org/history.
• Enjoy the coffee and social hour after Sunday morning programs. For the summer, the coffee hour is 'Do-It-Yourself'. Feel free to bring snacks to share and make coffee or tea. But, please help to clean up afterwards.
• Our Tribute Fund is a way of honoring each other—like condolences on losing a loved one and congratulations on a birth, wedding, or personal achievement. Each tribute is printed in the newsletter. Forms are on the literature tables.
• Join one of our hard-working committees—like Ethical Action, Sunday Program, Fund Raising, Building, Membership, Publicity, Audio-Visual, Adult Education, and Caring. Are you interested? Call Sharon Appelquist at the office.
