Each month, except June, July, August and December, we get together for a potluck supper, followed by a program, often a slideshow presentation, featuring matters of interest such as travel, outdoor activities or nature.



You’re invited to our monthly potluck and programs at the Obsidian Lodge.

They are usually on the last Friday of the month (except June, July, August and December) but are sometimes on a previous Friday to avoid holidays, so check our schedule for the specific date. The potluck dinner begins at 6:30PM; the program at 7:30PM and lasts approximately an hour.

Bring your favorite dish to share - a salad, casserole, bread, or dessert - and a plate, utensils, and hot beverage cup. To help with expenses, we suggest a $1 per person donation. Directions to lodge.

You do not have to be an Obsidian member to attend.   All are welcome.

The program listing for upcoming potlucks follows. For information about previous potlucks, see the Potluck Archive.
