Please join us in on Sunday January 9 for our first potluck gathering of the year: “Celebrating the New Year by Remembering the Old”. How might we do that? By preparing a dish with something from the local 2010 harvest: canned, frozen, butchered, pickled, dried or root cellared. Shouldn’t be too hard to do but if you are plum out of ideas, you can visit the Winter Market in Exeter on Jan 8th to stock up on something local.
