CHOW events are the first Wednesday of each month during the school year, with a light meal at 6 pm, followed by activities for all ages (including child care).
Mid-Week Potlucks are the 3rd Wednesday of each month, beginning at 6:00. The purpose is for fellowship and an opportunity to get to know others better. Please bring your own table service as well as a dish or two to share for the potluck. There is no program and no child care provided. Feel free to invite a guest!
