It’s almost time for our December meeting!  Coming up Wednesday Dec 7th  6-8 pm!

We have made so many wonderful friendships and connections this year, and each month more friendly faces are joining us.  If you’ve been thinking about coming to our meetings, there’s no time like the present!   Happy Holiday Potluck and sharing!  Potluck starts at 6pm.  Please come whether you have a dish or not, this is a time to mingle and get to know each other!

One of the topics we will explore is the health benefit of the beautiful pomegranate-is it a miraculous healing superfood or is the marketing a delicious deception? And how do you eat the darn things anyway?! FOOD DEMO and discussion!
