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 last Friday of the month, but are sometimes on a previous Friday to avoid holidays, so check our schedule for specific date. 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.

October 27, 2017—Plate Tectonics & Pacific NW

Beauty from the Beast: Plate Tectonics and the Landscapes of the Pacific Northwest with Bob Lillie

The same geological forces that threaten our lives with earthquakes and volcanic eruptions also nourish our spirits by forming spectacular mountains, valleys, and coastlines. Dr. Bob Lillie relates this "Beauty from the Beast" story of the Pacific Northwest by highlighting spectacular scenery in national, state and local parklands. He draws on his experience as a geology professor, park ranger and graphic illustrator to remind Northwest residents that our towns and iconic parklands are subject to geologic processes that affect our lives and livelihoods. By learning to live with the beast of earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions, we can more fully appreciate the beauty that surrounds us.

Dr. Robert J. (Bob) Lillie is a writer, illustrator, and national park ranger specializing in communicating park landscapes and their deeper meanings to the public. He was a Professor of Geosciences at Oregon State University and has authored several books. He lives in the Coast Range near Mary's Peak.
