Set up and networking from 6.30 - 7 pm, Dinner from 7 - 8 pm and clean up from 8 - 8.30 pm We ask that you label your ingredients, or bring the recipe to display.

Please be aware that these potlucks are a labor of love, and we ask that each attendee is respectful to each other and the space graciously being provided to us.
