Holiday Potluck Candlelight Dinner and Program, December 6th, 6pm

The December 6th meeting is also our annual Holiday potluck candlelight dinner, held at 6pm in the dining room of the White Mountain Research Center.

Do plan to attend as it is a fun event, and bring a friend or neighbor! Every participant should bring a dish (entrée, salad, or dessert to serve at least 6 people, and contribute either juice, soft drinks, wine or beer to the beverage table.) We often run out of food, so we would appreciate contributions of larger portions so there will be sufficient food for everyone. Please bring your own place setting. Audubon will provide coffee, tea, juice, and a touch of wine prior to the dinner. Also, we encourage you to bring more main dishes and salads this year than desserts, as last year we ran out of main dishes, but had leftover desserts. Everyone was still happy and well-fed, though! Arrive by 6pm for our potluck dinner. 

The dinner will be followed by a program at 7pm:
