Thank You, Mary, Jack and Dick!!!
The HUUmanists booth at the 2013 UUA General Assembly in Louisville, Kentucky was a big and busy place to be. Besides showcasing the Ribbons Not Walls art project and the Banned Book collection project, the booth was a place to buy Humanist books, bumper stickers, pins and magnets. Many people stopped by to chat about Humanism in the UUA and to join or renew their membership.
The booth was organized and run by the energetic Roger Brewin and assisted at various times by board members John Hooper, Pat Mohr, Maria Greene and Lowell Steinbrenner. We couldn't have kept up with the constant traffic if it wasn't for three dedicated HUUmanist members who were there to help:
- Mary Bellamy is from Vienna, VA and is a local group leader for the Humanist group at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Fairfax.
- Jack Reich is from DeKalb, IL and has been helping his friend Roger table at GA, district assemblies and other places for "many, many years".
- Dick Renfro drove over from Lexington, KY where he is involved with the Humanist Forum of Central Kentucky and the UU Church of Lexington.
