Unitarian Universalist Church
|Attendees||This is our main social event of the year. Please bring your families. Children are welcome. To enhance the fund-raising, we encourage you also to invite family members and/or friends who might be interested in bidding on auction items.|
|Potluck items to bring (each to feed 8-10)||CHOOSE ONE: Appetizer – Main dish – Side-dish – Salad – Dessert. If serving utensils are needed (large spoon, spatula, etc) please bring them, and label all dishes & utensils with tape showing your name (we often have orphans left behind, which are difficult to return w/o such an ID). Do not bring drinks (except perhaps a favorite soda) as your potluck contribution. Alcoholic beverages (wine, beer, etc) are not permitted. The club will provide fruit punch, soda, tea/coffee, disposable glasses, plates and eating utensils. (Remember to retrieve your serving dishes, leftover food and utensils before leaving or at the end of the event.)|
Auction items to donate
Because of the recent large increase in the facility rental fee for our club, we are dependent on this non-dues income to maintain the frequency and quality of our meetings. Auction donations are not tax-deductible.
CLICK HERE for a look at items donated so far for this year’s auction.
REMEMBER to bring a blank check to pay for items (since we cannot guarantee change for those bringing cash), and be prepared to retrieve any items that are not sold. Unsold items that have not been retrieved will be discarded.
|RSVP & Volunteers||
By Mon Sept 16 we will need to know how many people are attending (so we know how many tables and chairs to set up) and the type of dish each of you plan to bring for the potluck. Please use this RSVP Form to sign up online. For those who have an aversion to such forms, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, stating # attending, & dish you will bring. The sooner the better.
