Largest “Thirdsty” Thursday gathering yet for Free Thinkers

Fran Berman

On October 15 more than 30 SaddleBrooke Freethinkers and guests mixed, mingled and munched during happy hour at the Roadrunner Grill. As always, the room was alive with stimulating and sometimes provocative conversation. We reconnected with friends and made new ones. Attendees included residents of SaddleBrooke One, SaddleBrooke Two and SaddleBrooke Ranch.

Thirdsty = Third plus Thirsty. When you combine Third Thursday with Thirsty Thursday, you have Thirdsty Thursday. It’s an informal two hour casual mixer for SaddleBrooke Freethinkers to get to know each other better.

This informal social gathering meets from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. on the third thirsty Thursday every month year round in the Roadrunner Grill, so put it on your calendar. There is no guest speaker, topics list, or formal agenda. And you don’t have to be a member to attend. Regardless of political, religious or sexual preference, all are welcome.

Can’t make it on time? Need to leave early? No worries! Just pop in when you can and leave when you must. You’re also welcome to attend our more structured monthly meetings.

We are a non-sectarian group with no creeds, no dogmas, no obligations and no dues. According to our organizational charter, we “believe in the responsible search for truth and meaning and in the application of reason and science to the understanding of the universe and the solving of human problems. We believe that tolerance, compassion, equity and civility should characterize the interaction among peace-loving persons and organizations.”

The more structured meeting of the SaddleBrooke Freethinkers is usually at the MountainView Ballroom on the fourth Sunday morning each month, October to April. As the venue sometimes changes, be sure to check for announcements of upcoming events and summaries of past programs.
