Scandinavian Potluck Dinner, Wednesday, December 9th at 5:30p.m.

We will be setting up the Fellowship Hall to accommodate 180 diners. To be sure that you and your guests will be able to be seated when you arrive, you should pick up a FREE ticket for each person in your party, we’ll also keep track of the people to whom we gave tickets and how many. Ticket table will be available after church on November 29 and December 6th or until all tickets are gone. In addition, we are asking for a crew of helpers and chefs who will be instrumental in making the event a success. There are two sign-up opportunities: one for being part of the crew of helpers and the other for indicating what food you’ll prepare. The Congregational Life Ministry thanks you in advance for your assistance.
