HAGP Annual Summer Picnic Sunday, July 21, 2019 at Noon:

Rain or shine, we have reserved pavilion MHL-#1 at Fort Washington State Park for our annual picnic which will be held Sunday at noon on July 21, 2019. HAGP will supply drinks, hotdogs, hamburgers, and veggiburgers. We ask that participants whose name starts with A through M bring a salad or vegetable dish. If your name starts with N through Z, bring fruit, cookies, or dessert. To help cover our expenses we request a donation of $10.00 from adults. Children are free. If you plan to attend, please respond on the meetup on or before July 18. If you do not use the meetup you can notify Eileen or Jim at 215-657-0389.

 

Addendum to Picnic:

If you have any books you wish to donate, there will be a table available for a book swap. Even if you do not donate, feel free to take home any books you wish.

 

 

What is Humanism?

Humanism is a rational philosophy informed by science, inspired by art, and motivated by compassion.

Affirming the dignity of each human being, it supports the maximization of individual liberty and opportunity consonant with social and planetary responsibility.

It advocates the extension of participatory democracy and the expansion of the open society, standing for human rights and social justice.

Free of supernaturalism, it recognizes human beings as a part of nature and holds that values--be they religious, ethical, social, or political--have their source in human experience and culture. 

Humanism thus derives the goals of life from human need and interest rather than from theological or ideological abstractions, and asserts that humanity must take responsibility for its own destiny.
-- The American Humanist Association
