WOMEN’S ACTIVITIES: St. Francis of Assisi Dinner Club

Do you like good food? How about good conversation ranging from the more serious to hilarious and self-deprecating stories that will make you laugh? Do you want to disconnect from electronics and connect with people? Do you want to meet more parishioners and broaden your circle of friends? Then I have GREAT news!!

Join the St. Francis of Assisi Dinner Club! Delicious at-home get-togethers that feature food, drink, music and engaging conversation!

Here’s  how it works: Just commit to sharing good food once a month in your home. Don’t like to cook? There’s Publix, Winn Dixie and Harris Teeters. Groups are comprised of no more than 10 individual/5 couples. Why? Because most of us can accommodate 10 people for dinner. Not a couple? Partner with a friend or special someone.

The group rotates to a different home every month. The hosting couple/individuals select the main course to be served. All other couples/individuals bring the remainder of the meal – wine/beer & hor dourves , salad & bread, sides and dessert.

INTERESTED???  Come to the organizational Pot Luck Sunday, March 25th 12:00 Noon St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Mission.
