Welcome to the first issue of the FreeThought Fort Wayne, Inc. newsletter, "The Hoosier Herald." The newsletter is the latest addition in our ongoing attempt to construct a strong foundation for our group. The Hoosier Herald will be e-mailed monthly to those who wish to receive it. The newsletter will include our calendar of upcoming events, member news if you would care to submit an item, board and member short articles, a quote or two of interest, and more!
We have been busy this year. We revised our bylaws so that we could become incorporated and that happened in May. We have redone our entire website and launched it via our new website platform provider. Kudos to Calyb T. for investigating and proposing the new software to the board and to Chris Rex for designing the entire new website. We continue to enhance the website with new features so stay tuned. Check it out at www.freethoughtfw.org.
Did you know that FTFW has two members who do weekly radio shows on the Allen County Public Library's radio station WELT 95.7 FM? Chris Rex hosts "Based on Facts" which airs on Thursdays from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Calyb T. and others host "The Hoosier Humanist Hour" airing
Tuesdays, 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. In addition, we are looking into producing a live call-in television series on the library's Access Fort Wayne TV station. Stay tuned for updates!
So, as you can see, we have been busy AND we want to hear from you. What would you like our group to do for community outreach, educational presentations or social activities? And, what can you do to help? Please direct your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Robert Brandt, President of FTFW
