Turns out Edmonton Comic Expo is also this weekend and a whole bunch of our regular volunteers are attending that on Saturday.

We’ll cancel the Saturday event, in favour of a whole bunch of us showing up on Sunday to clean.   Please join us on Sunday, and if you need a ride, feel free to ask!

Board member Tina put together some resources for us, in order to encourage the city, province and federal governments to ban conversion therapy.   Feel free to download these letter templates to use as is, or edit to make it feel more personal.

You can find local MP’s at this webpage:

Also, remember that Federal Government mail can be sent free of charge.

We have decided to join in with Westwood Unitarians book club during the months that it runs.   The events have already been listed for Nov, Jan, Feb, and March, so you can check out their upcoming book list.   April will be added once a book title for that month has been chosen.

In the months they do not have a book club, we will continue with ours on the last Sunday of the month at Second Cup as per usual (with exception of December).

The FreeThinker Book club meets in the basement of the Westwood Unitarian Church at 7:00 PM on the last Wednesday of the month from Oct-March. The format varies but typically begins with a round table check-in and first reactions to the book. This is followed by a free ranging discussion, triggered by questions from other members.

All are welcome – atheists, humanists, agnostics, and theists and of course ‘free thinkers!!
