Cooking Light Dinner Club: 1st @ 6:30 pm

Meeting on the first Saturday each month (**but at anew time of 6:30 PM) This evening event, open to members and their spouses, is all about great, but healthy food! Guests bring healthy/healthier/lighter fare food to share. Please try to note or tag your dish if your food meets any of these allergens: shellfish, nuts, wheat/gluten or is of the vegan or vegetarian persuasion. Guests bring their favorite beverage of choice. The combination of food and fellowship makes for a delightful evening. There is no fee per se for the evening. The size of the event is limited to the comfort of the hostess. Locations change monthly as members graciously open their homes to entertain us each month.

From Scratch: 3rd Friday Quarterly

A small group of foodies who love to prepare and eat amazing food. We meet quarterly the 3rd Friday of the month from 12-2 in a home and try/test new things. We have lunch from the food we make. The modest fee covers the food we use and eat. Come cook with us! Look for our next adventure into the land of creation in an upcoming edition of the Welcome Mat Newsletter.



Pot Luck Dinner: 2nd Saturday @ 6:30 pm

The Pot Luck Dinner Group features a shared sit-down dinner in the home of a member. It is open to both couples and singles. Attendees are assigned a dish category by the hostess to serve the expected number of attending participants. In addition to opening her home, the hostess will provide non-alcoholic beverages. It is important to phone your RSVP to the hostess the week the newsletter comes out to assure ample time for allocation of menu categories and number of attending guests.

What's for Lunch?  1st Tuesday @ 11:30 am

With a focus on friendship, fun and of course FOOD, each month the group meets at a different member’s home for a potluck lunch. We always have a different theme, delicious food and a wonderful time. On an occasion, we have been known to deviate slightly with a cookie exchange or a lunch out option.
