Laid Back Thanksgiving Potluck!

Thanksgiving should be shared with family and friends,  I know many of us don't have lots of family around, many of us have moved here from other places or perhaps your family has moved away, for me it's just me and my Mom. Please join us for a warm, homey celebration and to give thanks together.

So, please- bring your favorite Thanksgiving dish- you can bring something that reminds you of Thanksgiving at home, or just something yummy.  I've got a turkey, stuffing and fill in depending on what everyone brings.  Please comment here, so we can all see how the menu shapes up!  

Significant others are welcome.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
