World Humanist Day and Solstice - International Humanist and Ethical Union

This is another annual event that could be used to promote Humanism and Freethought.

"World Humanist Day is celebrated annually on June 21 throughout the world.

"Marking the day is a way to spread information and combat misinformation about the positive aspects of Humanism as a philosophical life stance and means to effect change in the world.

"The origin was in the 1980s, when several state chapters of the American Humanist Association (AHA) began celebrating World Humanist Day."

I'm going to try and get something going in Tallahassee FL. Maybe a potluck or something, I would encourage others to do the same.
