November 6th 2019 Meeting at Meades Wine Bar (upstairs).
We will not have a December open meeting but a private get-together to gather all the collections for Cork Penny Dinners. The exact date will be announced at the November meeting.
The November meeting will include a discussion on Climate Week that was held in New York in September. Caroline attended it and will share the experience of the summit with us. We will also finalise the charity drive for Cork Penny Dinners. I have the list of desired non perishables and we can gather everything for early December. Remember not to gift wrap donations.
It is free to attend but 3 Euro donations are welcome.
The October meeting included a discussion on Humanist celebrants and Geraldine, our local celebrant shared her stories and insight and answered may questions on the experience and history of being a celebrant in Ireland including the legal aspect of incorporating the legal element into the ceremonies.
If you missed the discussion on Democratic education in schools, a topic we discussed in September please see below:

The Buddy Programme is for people who are considering coming along to a Cork Humanists event but would prefer to meet up and have a chat with someone one on one before attending an event. If you would like to be a Buddy simply reply to this email with your contact details. Preferably we would like a diverse bunch of Buddies so that when someone emails in we can put them in contact with a Buddy they have something in common with such as age, gender or whether they have children. For more information see our Buddy Progamme web page.
