If you're new here, this event is for you! If you're here since the beginning of this meetup group or anywhere in between, this event is for you too!
With Thxgiving coming up around the corner and with lots of new comers to our group. lets have a mingler potluck dinner. (Food not required if you're too busy to cook or a horrible chef like me, we'll be ordering takeout as needed)
Thanksgiving is traditionally a time where communities and neighbours bring food and celebrate things they're thankful for: a job, a place to live, being in Canada, freedom and most importantly great family, friends and community. Let's gather together around food and get to know others in the Extremely Shy community over dinner and fun games.
We'll bring some chicken or turkey. you guys bring some multicultural dish for 12+ people! (Or be a food judge if you don't have a dish) specify at your RSVP or post on discussion so there won't be 50 ppl bringing desserts.
6:00PM-8:00PM- Potluck Dinner
8:00PM-10:00PM- icebreaker + activities
cost- $15 at the door (no credit card)
Cost will go mostly toward chicken/turkey (anyone know of an affordable place to order a cooked turkey?), room/table/chairs rental, utensils, cups, drinks appies. excess will go toward prizes and toward keeping this group free. If you have food, you will be entered into the food contest/raffle!
