New Year's Day Sit & Potluck Lunch
Meditation: 10:30 - 11:30 a.m.
Lunch: Noon - 2:00 p.m.

Start 2015 with a meditative pause, and then some great food and socializing. On January 1st, we will sit for an hour, then break to get ready for our annual New Year's Day Potluck Lunch at noon. As always, Ralph Dougherty will bring a pot of his awesome vegetarian Hop'n John. Bring side dishes or snacks. We will have teas and coffee on hand--feel free to bring other beverages. If you can't bring food, come out for the lunch anyway. We always end up with more food than everybody can eat!
