potluck sat feb 27 and other events

please join us for another winter potluck!


this one is next Saturday evening, february 27th 6pm - 8pm at Helen Gunderson's house:

1626 Burnett in Ames. The theme is winter cooking with local foods. Our leader is Savanna Lyons and i think she will have some recipes, cooking and food storage ideas to share, but it would also be great if we all had a favorite recipe/tip to share and/or wanted to talk about the dish we brought to the potluck. I also know that Helen has some seeds to share, and i thought i would bring some seeds also, so if we have time, we can do a little seed swapping.

"Haunted by God," a one-woman dramatic presentation of the life of Dorothy Day be be presented on MOnday march 7, 7:30-9pm Fisher Theatre - free show.
