A pot luck lunch featuring full-fall-fare will be set up for all the Farmers and their guests so pitch in and bring a dish – some fun-finger-food or a flavorful entree or dessert. RSVP event coordinator, Cathy Adler at and let us know what you have in mind so we can supply the right amount of plates and utensils.
