I'm sorry it's taken me so long to respond. I don't check my atheist nexus page very often. We did start a group here in Elizabeth City. It's on meetupl.com. It's called "Elizabeth City Freethinkers". If you're ever in the area for an event, feel free to stop by. Oh and join if you can, we're actually up to 23 members.
There is a group in Elizabeth City, The Elizabeth City Free Thinkers http://www.meetup.com/Elizabeth-City-Freethinkers/
Check us out, we get together to have fun, not specifically on religious holidays but on days we choose for what ever reason comes up, our next big shindig will be to celebrate the 41st birthday of one of the members. We have 19 members so far, more are always welcome.
