CANCELLED: 6:00-7:00 MAIN HALL “Community Potluck”
November 7, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
An event every month that begins at 6:00 pm on day First of the month, repeating indefinitely
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we have suspended the Potlucks until it is safe to eat together again.
We will update this when we can get back together–and we’ll be happy to see everyone in person again, and to find out what great recipes they’ve developed since we got to share with them.
Every month (except July), on the “First Saturday”, the Capital City Grange is pleased to host a Community Potluck, where we hope all kinds of people from Berlin, Central Vermont–and the wider universe–will join us to share food and conversation. During the colder months, we set up tables (on mats to protect the floor) in our Main Hall–accessible to everyone!
In August, we have a cookout, and eat outside, either on the parking lot, or on the ADA entrance porch. We usually have a gas grill and a charcoal grill, and welcome people to cook their favorite grill item–meat or vegetable.
People come from the Grange meeting and/or program that precedes the potluck, or because they just want a good meal, and know that there will be a variety of salads, main dishes, breads, soups, meats, vegan dishes, desserts, dips and spreads, chips, beverages–the menu is constantly changing! Some people come because they will be dancing at the contra dance that comes a little later, at 8:00. Some people come because there is always someone interesting to talk to–it might be someone who has presented the program, or a Grange member, or a local celebrity, or a musician or caller–we draw an interesting crowd.
Bring a special dish you like to share, or a bag of chips, or a carton of milk, or a birthday cake you don’t want to eat all of! There is always lots of food, and lots of variety.
We eat on real plates, with real silverware–and a few volunteers wash up and socialize afterward. No paper plates, please!
You probably plan to have dinner–why not make it easy and come to the potluck?
