A group that includes 30 to 40 atheists or agnostics from Lodi are part of a coalition that is purchasing billboard advertising in Stockton and Ripon to promote their point of view.

The billboards, which went up this week, read, "Don't believe in God? Join the club."

    Thanks for the article, Ross.

    Just to clarify, we have not conducted fundraisers but we certainly encourage our members to be active in the community, volunteer, and donate. Last September we were recognized by the City of Stockton for our efforts.
