Holiday Party / Pot Luck Dinner

A minimum of four volunteers are 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 ar new to the group and unfamiliar with pot luck dinners, the affair works 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 kitchen has a refrigerator and facilities to reheat food.

We will need main dishes (stews, soups, roasts, pastas, casseroles), appetizers, side dishes, desserts, beverages, condiments, paper products, serving utensils, and so on.  To avoid duplications, please notifiy Philip De Parto of what you intend to bring in advance.

Anyone bringing food is asked to display next to their dish an index card with  the following information:  your name, the name of the dish, and a list of ingredients used in preparing their food.  This will allow people with dietary restrictions of a medical or religious nature to be sure that they can enjoy the food without any problems.

Although we much prefer everyone to bring a dish, we know that there will always be someone who decides to attend at the last minute or who was unable to prepare something for the meal.  These people may donate $ 5.00 in lieu of food.  This is to cover the cost of food and is separate from the Attendance or Annual Membership Fess 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 AT OR NEAR 7:15 PM.  WHEN FOOD ARRIVES HOURS LATE IT SIMPLY GETS DISCARDED!

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 the Methodist Church and post office charge us rent, postage, and so on.  Call ahead of time if you need to discuss anything.
