Time again to meet and greet at the table

Dinner for Eight sign-up is going on now

Information submitted by Susan Willson

Won’t be long before folks are nesting inside with pumpkins, gourds and cornstalks decorating their front porches and doorways. The teasing aroma of hot apple cider will welcome friends to gather at this colorful time of the year to break bread and enjoy each other’s company.
It’s also the time to make new friends, and have we got an opportunity to do just that!
Dinner for Eight is a Big Canoe tradition started by the Chapel years ago to help folks get to know each other. What better way to connect than over a meal?
Couples as well as singles are invited to join Dinner for Eight where they’ll be assigned to a group of six other people to meet once a month for four months, dates being determined by the group.
Now, don’t think a ten-course dinner fit for a king must be on the menu board. Many groups of eight meet in restaurants, picnic on pontoons, cook-out at Wildcat, or forget dinner and catch a play together. It’s all about making new friends and having good times together in a small, intimate setting.
It’s time to sign-up for the September- December Dinner for Eight groups. This is a most fun seasonal session with welcoming stews, hot breads, and simmering soups filling tables. There might be a theme in your group’s future with Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas marking the calendar.
If you think you’d like to meet a few new faces and enjoy sumptuous bounty this fall, email Susan Willson at eliz8190@yahoo.com and Susan will find you a place card at a neighborhood table.
