Circle Coffee Mornings, 2nd Tuesday of Each Month at 10 AM

This program is brought to you by K8’s5 Women’s Circle and Kensington Community Church. Meet in Lander Hall for coffee, tea, pastries, fruit, good company, and a different program every month. We’re casual and you already know most of us. Open to all (that means the men folk, too!)

Our next meeting will be Tuesday, December 12, at 11 AM (One hour later than our regular start time).  We will celebrate the holiday season with a potluck luncheon!  Holiday traditions live in our memories if not always in our modern practices.  We will begin our meeting with a short order of business before sharing our memories, followed by a potluck lunch. And we will linger over coffee, tea and desserts.  Everyone is welcome and by all means, bring a friend. Prepare or pick up your favorite dish; no need to check assortment, no need to RSVP, but do show up!  Call Joan Wayman- 619-756-7733- if you would like to be included on the phone and email reminder list.
