FTFW is such a dynamic and interesting group. In June, we started two new ventures. The first was the launching of our live call-in TV show, “We Are Atheists” (WAA), coordinated by Calyb T. and his enthusiastic team of volunteers, including John Loftus. Besides the Kent Hovind debate (which was pre-recorded), WAA aired two other shows (recorded live) and are planning on airing a show at 7:00 p.m. on the first Tuesday and second Thursday of each month. We also launched a new discussion group in June titled, “Meeting of the Minds,” which will meet every third Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Fort Wayne. This is a participant-driven discussion of whatever two topics the group decides to talk about.
Saturday, July 21st we will be hosting our annual FTFW picnic, which is open to all who want to come from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Bring a dish to share, as well as the kids, and make it family outing as we celebrate being humanists. Additionally, for the very first time, we are not only participating in the Pride March (as we have the previous 2 years), but we will also be a part of the Pride Fest celebrations on Saturday, July 28th. We will have a table set up from noon until 7:00 p.m, where we will be handing out literature about humanism/FTFW and interacting with the crowd. It should be a fun event for everyone involved, so come out and support our local LGBTQ+ community in Fort Wayne!
