Join your neighbors in a Potluck Dinner Picnic on the lawn in

Bring a delicious dish to share with your neighbors.

No advance sign up is required.

We’ll bring the ice cold lemonade!

Need an idea for what to bring?
Visit this scrumptious looking site:

Stick to entrees, salads and side dishes. (better to have too many salads & sides, than all desserts)

Don’t forget to bring your picnic blanket and your reusable cups, plates and flatware.
(We have your back and will have paper supplies and serving spoons if you forget)
