Pot Luck Socials
Following the Reading Service on at least one Sunday each quarter we share a vegetarian meal and have the opportunity to socialize with other members and friends. Please plan to join us.
We are interested in adding some activity in addition to the meal. If you have suggestions or requests please let us know. We might show a DVD from Mother Center.
