First Friday Potlucks

Let's keep these wonderful events happening in the coming year. A new way to share hosting responsibilities is being put into place for 2018. This will be an easy way for members to choose how they can be involved and which month they can do that. Our potlucks will happen every time those commitments are in place, so stay tuned for more details about how to communicate your willingness to volunteer for our 2018 events. Meanwhile, without a lead organizer, our December 1 potluck is cancelled. If you have questions, or would like to step up to make December 1st a "go", email our Membership Manager Caron Armstrong at Best, Patty Ricono

Care Committee Needs Help!

I joined the Fellowship because I needed a community that cared about me. Now I belong to the Care Committee that helps to implement caring in our community. The Care Committee needs new folks to join our committee. We meet once a month on the second Thursday at noon. Are you available to join us?  If you are interested but can’t make this time, we can accommodate your schedule and give you a specific job.
