Wow, what a great month! In September we had several donations and a raffle through Twisted Tattoo. We sponsored or attended 7 community service events and 6 social events. That was 13 chances for us to make a difference in each others lives.
We have grown into a community that can handle serving 700 plus trainees each weekend for this months total of 3,346, at the Helping the Homeless event, we helped at total of 101. We also served at the Food Bank helping them with their garden spot that serves the local community of 16 counties. We contribute time and effort to SARA and UIW for the beautification of the parks and wildlife around us. STAR’s Nebula group is creating our child focused groups to teach them about the world in a secular way.
We also take some time to blow off steam and have a great time together as friends and have a few drinks. We are making a difference within our STAR community and in the lives of those around us. Check out a few pictures of our events and come join us as soon as you can.

We are also launching a new networking program and website in October. So many new opportunities are coming and we need your help.
Please help us keep it going by becoming a paid member, making a donation, or purchasing a t-shirt, sticker, or dog tag. Most of all, we request your participation in the events as we add new ones. We need people to help keep programs organized and all talents are appreciated. Let us know if you feel you can help with one event or many.
Have a great month! Hope to see you soon.
South Texas Atheists for Reason (STAR) is a young organization; we were founded in October of 2015. In that time we have grown tremendously! We get together for games, conversation, and BBQs. We also focus on serving the communities in which we live and have a very active group of volunteers. Whether you are looking for a place for the kids to play and have fun, a place to give back to your community, or a place for the adults to kick back and have fun, you have found the right place. We hope to see you soon!
Vicki Gettman, Executive Director STAR
