Friday Meals are Back!

For the Fall we have set a new schedule for the upcoming meals.
The meals are potluck and open to everyone (feel free to invite anyone!). There’s always lots of good food, music, games, and activities for all ages. We meet outside in between our two houses 105/109 Front Porch Dr. Black Mountain, NC. Parking is available in the municipal lot next to Mellie Mac’s Garden Shack.

*A note about October 14th at Foothills Grange: We won’t have a potluck meal that night, but instead will meet for beer/drinks and food at Foothills (http://foothillslocalmeats.com/foothills-grange-black…) This is a super kid-friendly place with space to run around even a giant sand mount to play in. Foothills has lots of great food and drinks!
