In lieu of our regular monthly meeting, please join us for our annual festive Winter Solstice party to celebrate the holidays! It is our time to enjoy good friends, good food and goodwill, so we welcome all supporters of our organization to join in the fun!
This will be a potluck event, so we are asking all guests to bring a dish to share. Please send your RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to advise that you will attend and what you plan to bring from the following suggestions:
• Favorite entree
• Salads - tossed green, fruit, pasta, etc.
• Sides - vegetables, potatoes, etc.
• Fruits, cheeses, crackers
As part of our HumanLight participation, we'll once again collect canned goods and other non-perishable foods for Second Harvest Food Bank. Please take a look at their list here to put together your donation bag.
HumanLight is a celebration of "a Humanist's vision of a good future." We celebrate a positive approach to the coming new year through the lens of secular humanism.
*** Please be sure to RSVP, so our host will have an accurate count for his preparation. Many thanks to NOSHA President Emeritus, Harry Greenberger, for opening his home to our friends!

Join Future of Ethical Societies for Local Community Project
- When: Sunday, December 28, 2014 @ 1:00 pm
- Our School at Blair Grocery , 1740 Benton Street , New Orleans, LA view map
Future of Ethical Societies (FES) is a group of young adults across the United States who are invested in humanism and ethical culture. Ethical Humanism serves as an alternative to traditional religion for folks who seek it. They believe in "deed before creed", and bringing out the best in each other so as to realize the best in ourselves.
FES has planned a service trip to New Orleans and they would love to meet like minded humanists while they are here!
This will be a work day at the community farm, Our School at Blair Grocery, which serves youth and the community by educating them about food justice. Founder Nat Turner will also share his vision for the Lower 9th Ward community.
You are encouraged to bring your own lunch, snacks and beverages for the afternoon.
Parade with the Mystic Krewe of the Evangelical Pastafarians
- When: Saturday, February 07, 2015 @ 6:15 pm
- Mimi's In The Marigny, 2601 Royal St., New Orleans, LA view map
Fire up your creative meatballs and join the krewe!
The Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus proudly announces the theme for their 2015 Mardi Gras Parade: “The Cult of the Sacred Drunken Wookiee!"
You will need to be a 2015 member of NOSHA and become a member of Chewbacchus by the time we roll. Think of your best noodly appendage costume: space pirates, pasta strainer helmets, skeletal fish or any combination of the above. The sky really is the limit, so add to our zaniness!
Also, this is DIY parade so you'll want to start thinking about your throws. Ramen noodle packages were a hit, practical and at the same time edible. Pasta necklaces were also fun and lightweight. We'll set a meeting sometime in December to put together all of our best ideas from last February.
