The potluck is free and open to the public, at no charge; the tour is on a suggested donation basis. See link for details.

A potluck dish to share
- a place card noting the ingredients is helpful to those with food sensitivities/preferences.
A place setting (plate or bowl, fork and knife, cup) if you can (not everyone has place settings for this many guests, and it will save the host and helpers from washing so many dishes!)
Your good thoughts, questions, and skills to share!

Thanks so much for your community spirit and connectedness! 
We hope to see you there!
