What: Simply a traditional neighborhood potluck. No program or presentation.

What to Bring: Guests bring any food item they want to bring, enough to share with 6 to 8 people. Main dish, side dish, salad, bread, dessert, appetizers, etc. Bring food only. Hosts are providing plates, utensils, cups, drinks, etc.

And Bring a Chair or Blanket: Bring portable chair and/or blanket to sit on. We form a large circle on the central lawn and eat and mingle and talk. The hosts are providing serving tables. There are a few picnic tables at the park that attendees may eat at, but most everybody sits on the lawn using folding chairs they bring themselves.

There are always many families with young children at this event. (There is a great playground there.) But traditionally, most of the people who come to this event are single individuals (of all ages!) or couples whose children have grown. At last year's event, 61 people came.

This group has organized this neighborhood potluck event at Rotary Park at this time of year for over ten years (only skipping a couple of years due to the pandemic).

Fun Fact #1: March 24 is National Chocolate Covered Raisin Day! We WILL have chocolate covered raisins there - enough for everybody.

Fun Fact #2: This will be the 75th neighborhood event organized by the neighborhood potluck group since it began in July 2021.
