Enjoy dining and socializing with a different group of members each month. Dinners are primarily held from January through April. Each month, a different member (couple) hosts dinner for themselves and three other couples. The hosts select the menu and provide the main course. The other couples each provide an appetizer, salad or soup, and dessert. Each couple also provides their beverage of choice. It is a lot of fun getting to know other folks in a more relaxed and intimate setting. Give it a try!

Bon Appetit!

To Attend:

Each month, the activity leader will select the couples to make up each group. The hosting couple will receive an email from the activity leader, telling them to contact the other couples in their group to arrange a date/time that works for all, and to provide them with their home address, contact info, etc.. To be added to the group's email list, sign up at a general meeting or email the activity leader prior to the December general meeting.

Dear Diners,

The holidays are over and, finally, we will begin our Dining In dinners this month. We will continue with groups of 6 people (instead of 8), to address the concerns expressed by many of Covid exposure risk.  Our dinners will run for four months - January through April.  You will find two attachments to guide you.  One is our guidelines and the other is our member contact list. We will have 6 separate dinners each month.

EVERYONE - Please check the attached member contact list to make sure that your contact information is correct. (I'll be the first to admit that I'm no typist!)  If any of the information needs to be corrected, please let me know ASAP.
Hosts - Please refer to the instructions attached.  You will be in charge of contacting your guests using the attached Contact List to schedule your date in January.  If you have questions, feel free to give me a call.  Notice that there are several alternates listed on the members list if one of your guests cannot attend, please reach out to these folks.  If you would please just shoot back a reply to only me (not the whole distribution) to let me know that you have received this, that would be great! 
Guests - If you have been assigned a side dish or dessert this month, just sit back and wait to hear from your host.  If you do not hear from them within the next week, please let me know.
Please let me know if you have any questions.  I hope everyone has a wonderful time.
Happy Dining!
