Hope everyone is doing well. The Annual Thanksgiving Potluck is shaping up to be another great event! Friendly faces you know, food you love, and a wonderful time together! A perfect opportunity to get together with long-time members, recent regulars, first-timers, vegetarians, vegans, and those just thinking about trying it out! Plus, this year we'll also be helping out a good cause -- the Mid-Ohio Food Bank! This year's pot-luck will be held on Sat, Nov 13 at 12:30pm in the Dublin Library. The event is free -- just bring a dish to share (vegan preferred, so everyone can enjoy), a place setting for you and your guests and a food donation for the Mid-Ohio Food Bank. Click here to sign up or get complete details:

In addition, there are TONS of other activities and events going on! If you have the opportunity, be sure to take in one or more of the following:
