Dining Group
Members along with their spouse/partner or friend gather, usually on the second Saturday of the month, for a hostess-planned potluck meal. Themes for the meals are chosen in advance by each hostess and range from various national cuisines, to home style comfort fare; unique ingredients to food from novels. Members self-select in advance from the many monthly themed options (each member hosts one dinner) for an evening of fellowship and fabulous food.   For more information: Chris Blackman bcblackman@msn.com.
