DETAILS ABOUT THE OPTIONAL (but encouraged) POTLUCK:
If you’d like to participate in the optional potluck* and social time preceding the presentation, please bring a dish to share.
Group meals are a key feature of cohousing communities, which is why we include them as an option prior to our quarterly presentations and encourage people to attend that if they are able. TCCN provides water, coffee and tea. You’re welcome to bring a non-alcoholic beverage of choice for yourself, or to share.
