The end of another year is just around the corner.  The last meeting of the year is our annual Holiday Pot Luck Dinner!  Members are asked to bring a dish to share that serves 8-10 people.  This can be an appetizer, a side dish or dessert.  Some choose to bring a turkey, a ham, or possibly a main dish casserole.  A sign-up sheet will be passed around at the November 14 meeting; if you are coming to the Holiday Dinner, please indicate both the number in your party and the dish that you will bring. If you are unable to attend the November meeting but would still like to join us for the Holiday Pot Luck Dinner in December, please contact Jane Frigo (757-873-0721 or birderjane@gmail.com) by December 1, so the planning committee (Dianne Snyder, Charm Peterman , Susan Morris and Jane Frigo) can plan for adequate seating.  Everyone is asked to lend a hand cleaning up at the end of the evening. This is always a wonderful time to visit with members and get caught up on various activities.
