Holiday Dinner, December 14
Saturday, December 14th, will be the annual Holiday Dinner. This year we will have Keith and Friends to entertain and delight us! Dinner will begin at 6:30 this year. There will be a sign-up sheet for letting us know how many plan to attend so we can have enough turkey, ham, tofu turkey, and vegan and vegetarian choices for you. Please see Jan or Linda to sign up for what side dish to bring. We ask that each family bring at least one food dish (two if you have a large family). If you cannot bring a dish please see Linda. All are welcome! This year’s sign-up will be a bit different. You will be asked to bring certain dishes so there will be enough food to go around. This worked very well the last year so we are going to do it again. This allowed a great variety of foods and gave people a choice of what kind of food they would like to bring. We also ask that each dish you bring will serve at least 10-12 people, so that we make sure to have enough for everyone. If you have any questions about the dinner, please address them to Linda or Jan. We look forward to seeing everyone this year at the Holiday Dinner.
