2018 - 12/2018 Meeting

Page Created:  08/29/18.  Last Updated:  12/15/18.


Holiday Party / Pot Luck Dinner


A minimum of four volunteers will be needed at the Methodist Church at 6:00 PM to assist with the set up for the pot luck dinner.  For those of you who are new to the group and unfamiliar with pot luck dinners, the affair operates in this manner:  everyone prepares a dish and everyone shares from the common pot.  We hope to have dinner ready for 7:15 PM.  The Methodist Church has a refrigerator and facilities to keep warm / reheat food.

We will need main dishes (stews, roasts, pastas, casseroles) appetizers, side dishes, desserts, beverages, condiments, paper products, serving utensils and so on.  To avoid duplications, please notify Philip De Parto about your planned contribution in advance of the event.

Anyone bringing food is asked to include an index card to display with their dish.  The card should include the following information:  the name of the contributor, the name of the dish, and a list of ingredients used in the preparation of the food.  This will all people with dietetic restrictions of a medical or religious nature to be sure that they can enjoy the food without difficulty.

Although we much prefer that everyone bring a dish, we know that there will always be someone who decides to attend at the last minute or who will be unable to prepare something for the meal.  These people may donate $ 7.00 in lieu of food.  This is to cover the cost of food and is separate from the Attendance or Annual Membership Fees that may be due.  Note:  everyone is expected to contribute food or equivalent.  This includes first time attendees.

IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU ARRIVE AT THE METHODIST CHURCH WITH YOUR FOOD BY OR NEAR 7:15 PM.  WHEN FOOD ARRIVES HOURS LATE IT SIMPLY GETS DISCARDED BECAUSE EVERYONE IS FULL!

This is a standard meeting of the Association with the usual membership, etc. fee structure in place.  We require these fees in addition to the food or money we charge for dinner because the Methodist Church and the Post Office charge us rent, postage, and so on.  Call ahead of time if you need to discuss anything.
