Each month, except 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/or programs at the lodge! They are usually on the fourth Friday of the month, but are sometimes on the third Friday to avoid holidays. The 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 a member to attend. All are welcome.

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