The First Presbyterian Dinner Club had it’s maiden meal on October 7, 2009. Three groups met at the homes of Linda & Pete Thompson, Connie & Frank Smith, and Ruthann & Gene Kyle. Everyone reported that they really enjoyed the small groups and getting to know each other.
Some decisions were made by the three groups who met in October to meet on the first Thursday of the month. The three dinner groups who met in October also felt that the composition of the groups should change each time so that people can get acquainted with more members of the church. There was discussion about meeting at church for dessert. It was agreed that this might create some problems during the fall and winter months, especially for those traveling from/to Lakes of the North or Guthrie Lakes, and particularly if there would be one of the groups meeting in either of these places. Perhaps, having dessert at church could be tried during the summer months.
Because our church is a mobile church with many gone for the winter months, we realize that we need to be flexible in our planning. We will be planning on a month-to-month basis. Patti Dawson has volunteered to coordinate the dinners. She will e-mail those with e-mail addresses and send snail mail to those who don’t have e-mail and ask people to respond to her regarding their intent to participate approximately 2 weeks prior to the next dinner date. About a week before she will make the assignments and notify the host/hostesses about who will be coming to their home(s). The host/hostesses are responsible to call their assigned guests about their food assignment, time to meet, and where to go.
Any time is a good time to join the dinner club. Just contact Patti Dawson at 939-8323.
These pictures were taken at the Aug. 4, 2011 dinner which was held on three pontoons on Opal Lake. This was the second year we had one of our dinners on pontoons, and it looks like a good possibility that we will need to add a third pontoon next year. As the pictures show, a good time was had by all. Left click on any picture to enlarge it.
