Solstice Potluck and Book Auction

  • Dec 16, 2012 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

SHL’s annual Winter Solstice Potluck will be held Sunday on December 16, 2012, at 5 pm at the Summerville home of Robert and Janet Rosenzweig. Please bring an appetizer, salad, main dish, side dish, or dessert to share. If you don’t like to cook, wine, beer, and soft drinks are always welcome.

Also, bring books, CDs, or DVDs for our annual book auction. Proceeds will be donated to our Charity of the Quarter. Herb Silverman will be our auctioneer. (To keep the auction from lasting an eternity, please bring items related directly to humanism.)

If you’re using Google Maps, MapQuest, or a GPS, the Rosenzweigs’ address is 100 Willis Lane, Summerville, SC 29483.

If you prefer to kick it old-school, here are the directions:

- Take i-26 West towards Columbia.
- Take exit 199A. You’ll be on 17 Alt going south.
- When you can, get two lanes over.
- Go approximately 2∂ Miles (9 lights).
- Turn right at Richardson. (A theater will be on your left, a park on your right, and you’ll be facing Town Hall.)
- Go 1 block.
- Turn left at next light, which is Cedar Street (Rae Rocco will be on your left, the Commission of Public Works on your right.)
- Cedar curves and becomes Central Avenue.
- Go approximately 1 mile (2 lights).
- After the second light (Carolina), go 1 long block past 4 or 5 houses.
- When you see a yellow fire hydrant, turn right.
- Enter immediately onto a diagonal gravel/dirt road facing you called Briarwood Lane
- At Willis Lane, turn left.
- The Rosenzweigs’ house (100 Willis) is the first red brick house on right. It has white columns and black shutters.

If you get lost or need further directions, you can call the Rosenzweigs at (843)[masked] (home) or (843)[masked] (mobile).

We hope to see you there, and we would like to extend a special invitation to people on our mailing list who rarely come to meetings, as well as past speakers who are not members. There will be no meeting at Gage Hall this month but we will return to our regular meeting format in January.

Children are welcome, but this potluck party is not especially child-friendly.  If you have kids and are looking for something that is for the whole family, check out our Cookie Holiday Party on 12/2.  That party is specifically for families and children, though anyone can come.

    Nice party. Great folks and lots of food. (Need some meat dishes next time - not everyone is a vegetarian.)

    I'd love to attend this and I have a ton of books. I just wonder, how many books would be too many? I probably have 3 or 4 boxes of books and a whole box of DVD's. I don't want to bring more than you need.

      Hi Michael! We don't really have a maximum per se (and it is a fundraiser, so lots is good), but we try to keep the auction to freethought/atheist/huma­nist/etc. themed books, CDs, and DVDs.
