The Reason Rally 2012

Click Reasonrally Rally

Four members of our group braved the 8 hour bus ride each way to show our support for the event. Three took a long car trip. As the deadline to sign up for the bus loomed with insufficient riders, CDHS guaranteed the remaining seats and the trip was a "GO" Enjoy the pictures!

Humanists Bowl 2012

Click Bowling proud

Our social on Sunday, February 19th was right up our alley. Nine humanists bowled and 4 humanists cheered them on. Whether we were bowling in the gutter or getting strikes and spares, there was mirth and merriment galore. Spare Time Lanes in Latham was the perfect place for our rusty, but diligent group to meet and bowl. We were given 3 lanes in the corner, away from the madding crowd, so that we could concentrate on our aim and try to recapture our youth. In spite of the fact that several bowlers hadnít held a ball in quite a while, lots of strikes and spares appeared on the score board. It turned out to be a delightful way to spend a few hours on a cool winter afternoon. Hereís hoping that more people will join us the next time we plan such an activity. Enjoy the pictures!

Costume Party 2012

Our CDHS costume party occurred at the Beckers home. The "come as something you don't believe in" party was relatively well attended. To everyone's surprise, even the extra-terrestrial visitor from the Anniversary dinner appeared, lending credence to its existence. Witches, soothsayers & fortune tellers, vampires, a blind referee, the red-tape government man, Poseidon, a mermaid, cave woman and dinosaur- both claiming not to know each other, angels and devil, and lastly but not leastly, Adam and Eve showed their faces (and alot more!) There was plenty of good food, so all survived their non-existences. Enjoy the pictures!

Anniversary Dinner- 2010

Click ET appears ET

Another large turnout of CDHS members made the Anniversary dinner a delight. Our dinner was "graced" by two special guests. John Delano from SUNY Albany, spoke about recent discoveries of inhabitable planets. Then, to everyone's surprise, an extra-terrestrial visitor appeared, lending truth to Mr. Delano's reports. A good time was had by all- even ET. Enjoy the pictures!

Schenectady has returned to the limelight! Proctors CEO Philip Morris is playing a big part in that process. Members of CDHS saw first hand what is being done to Proctors Theater and how it is revitalizing the entire downtown Schenectady area. We enjoyed lunch at the Parker Inn and then a first hand guided tour by the very knowledgeable and deeply caring Mr. Morris. Sights included the backstage area, dressing rooms, as well as the new theater annex and box office areas. A most enjoyable tour!
