Nick Little, CFI’s Legal Director, visited Amherst, NY and gave a lecture on Wednesday, January 16. Nick’s lecture was on “The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly – Secular Litigation And The Post-Kennedy Supreme Court.” We are working to see if we can make video available from Nick’s talk. Photos of the event were taken by CFI volunteer Alan Crawford.
On January 18, CFI WNY hosted our first ever CFI Game Night. Attendees had the option of participating in group board games or playing vintage video games. We are currently in the process of putting together another game night sometime in March.
CFI’s Secular Book Club met on January 23 at 7pm for a lively discussion of Ta-Nehisi Coates book “Between the World and Me.” The next book club meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, May 15. If you are interested in helping select the next book title, you can do so by filling out this Poll by Friday, March 8.
As usual, SOS meetings took place on Tuesday evenings at 7pm. Just Buffalo literary cafe held a poetry reading on the 1st Wednesday of the month, and Cafe Inquiry events were held on the 1st, 2nd, and 4th Mondays. The January Potluck Dinner Party was a success as usual, and Drinking Skeptically celebrated its one year anniversary on January 11.
Finally, Secular Sundays continue to be held on the last Sunday of the month. In January, we decorated our own “finches” in preparation for Darwin Day (celebrated every year on Darwin’s birthday, February 12).
