Barrie Webster is president of the Victoria Secular Humanist Association and the Memorial Society of BC. Barrie will speak about both organizations.
The VSHA is one of Canada's oldest Humanist groups in Canada (since 1953). They offer a community for the non-religious in the Victoria area, and a forum for discussing and advancing a secular worldview based on our common humanity. They have a variety of regular activities which are free and open to the public. On Sunday mornings throughout the year, they have a social breakfast at the Cedar Hill Golf Course. Presentations with speakers are offered on Sundays every few weeks from September to May. And on the first and third Wednesday evening each month, they have a Humanist Cafe with open discussion of topics of interest.
The Memorial Society of British Columbia (MSBC) is a non-profit organization formed in 1956 to help its members to plan funerals that are simple, dignified and affordable. As a member of MSBC, you can plan your farewell with the confidence that you have the largest consumer group in B.C. protecting your interests — and the interests of your loved ones when it’s time to make funeral arrangements. Membership gives you peace of mind and the assurance that your final wishes will be fulfilled. And membership helps reduce stress for your family at their time of need. Simply put, you have someone on your side.
All are welcome to attend. Join us at 10 am for BYO coffee, tea, and socializing. At 10:30 am we start our presentation and discuss topics of interest to our members.
The BC Humanist Association was formed in 1984 and we have a regular attendance of over 30 people at our Sunday meetings.
