After ending February on the right note with our very successful Austin Dacey event, SHIFT has had several social events this month, with more to come. First, we had a bowling social on 3/7, during which we had great conversation and ate cookies and donuts, while bowling in the bowling alley of the Union Building. Next, on 3/14, at the suggestion of group member Jeff Jenkins, we celebrated Pi Day (seeing as mathematics are one of the few things in the universe that can be proven true) by going to The Pie for pizza. We gathered first at the Union for our usual Sunday meeting and left as a group at 1:59 (pi = 3.14159) for The Pie, where we ate delicious pizza and cheese pull-aparts, and enjoyed interesting conversation. Finally, in order to start Spring Break off right, we gathered on 3/20 in the Union Building theater for a screening of the movie Religulous, which incited much laughter and some enlightening conversation afterward. Many brought snacks to share with everyone, including some atheist cookies (square soft cookies with white icing and the scarlet atheist 'A' on them), provided by group member Zach Stevenson's aunt from her in-home bakery called Just Sweets Bakery, and they were great! This Saturday (3/27), some of us will be meeting at a local restaurant for a social lunch (exact time and location TBD), seeing as we will not be having our usual Sunday meetings until after Spring Break. I hope you can join us for lunch this Saturday (keep an eye on our facebook page for details) and for the great events that will take place during the month of April, including a combined social event SHIFT will be having with SHAFT, our sibling group from Utah State University, for which we will be having a picnic and enjoy other outdoor activities (specific date and location TBD, so keep an eye on our facebook page for details).
