Greetings! Two weeks ago, CAH had its last event of the season. We will pick up again on October 3, in Parish Hall, 7 pm, when David Ropeik will present “Cognitive Limits on Human Reason”.

Do enjoy the intervening Summer and come back eager for the new series we are planning for the Fall, starting with David. Read more about A Brief History of Concord Area Humanists (CAH) »

The Concord Area Humanists got started early in 2009. Several friends who are members of the Unitarian Universalist First Parish in Concord advertised their intent to start the group and, on a snowy Thursday, January 8th, 46 people attended the "Founding Meeting".
