May 4, All Maine Potluck

Please join us after the service for an “All Maine” Potluck” hosted by the Peace and Social Action Committee. Everyone should bring a dish comprised of food grown within Maine. Have some fun with this creative challenge. Just do the best you can. The important thing is that you participate! While eating, we can have a lively discussion of the difficulties and rewards of making healthy and tasty dishes with only local ingredients.
