Ms. Karen Swartout

Dinners For Six

Karen Swartout

Each group sets its own rules and decides when to get together for the dinner, whose turn it will be to host the dinner, what type of dinner it is (potluck, formal, informal, barbeque, etc.). Some folks prepare the entire meal; other groups ask that the members bring something for the dinner; or the group can agree to eat out. Couples and singles are invited to join in the fun! If you are single, please choose a partner and sign up as a couple, or sign up as an individual and we will pair you up.  A great way to get to know our fellow parishioners in an informal setting!
