Friday Foods

There’s a new food group at the library, we call it “Friday Foods’.






Every Friday at noon we meet [unless unforeseen things happen], bring food and enjoy good conversation.
Each month has food designated for said month. There is also designated food for certain dates. So the club members can make something that includes the ingredient of the day or one or more ingredients of the month.







Each member brings some kind of food or drink item that matches the month or date, then we enjoy a wonderful lunch!
Any “Adult” who wishes to join us is more than welcome.








We have had some wonderful food so far, come and join us!…
