December 6, 2015
The Freethought Society (FS) is pleased to be co-sponsoring a very special event with Ethical Humanist Society of Philadelphia (EHSP) and the Delaware Valley Chapter of Americans United for Separation of Church and State to mark the 10th anniversary of the “Intelligent Design” court case of Tammy Kitzmiller, et al. v. Dover Area School District, et al. (400 F. Supp. 2d 707, Docket No. 4cv2688).
The Sunday, December 6, 2015 event starts with a free and open-to-the-public 11:00 AM, EHSP morning platform featuring Hugh Taft-Morales (EHSP Leader).
This event will take place at the EHSP building located at 1906 South Rittenhouse Square Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19103.
The 2015 EHSP/FS Tree of Knowledge will be decorated after the platform speech and everyone is invited to participate. There will be music, singing, and books to purchase from authors.
The official 10th Anniversary program starts with a luncheon service at 1:00 PM. The $30 program fee includes lunch, afternoon speakers, a cash bar ($5 wine and champagne) and Happy Hour Closing Ceremony (includes finger foods, music, a celebration cake and photo opportunities).
For only $15, you can enjoy afternoon speakers and the happy hour. That portion of the event starts at 2:30 PM. The program includes:

There are two parking facilities close to the Ethical Humanist Society Building at 1906 Rittenhouse Square.
One is a garage run by Parkway Corporation at 1845 Walnut St, directly across Rittenhouse Square from the EHSP building. It costs $30 to park there.
There is a parking lot at 20th and Walnut St, one block from Rittenhouse Square, next to the Church of the Holy Trinity, and another lot across the street also at 20th and Walnut. I believe these lots are $24 each.
