  • the Crust Moon, because the snow cover becomes crusted from thawing by day and freezing at night;
  • the Sap Moon, because March is the time to tap maple trees for their sweet sap which is turned into maple syrup;
  • the Lenten Moon, because it happens right around the Christian season of Lent.

Celebrate Thanksgiving with our friends and family.  Remember, this is the Saturday BEFORE the actual holiday.

This is a clothed event so bring your family and friends who may be curious about where you spend your time!  This is open to all members and their families.

Please get your reservations and what you plan to bring to Bev by November 12th.   Reservations are needed so we make sure we have enough seating and food   This is a planned dinner, not a regular pot luck.   Dinner is set for 6 pm. so please plan accordingly!       And if you can’t make it, please let me know so I don’t “bug” you about it!

Please contact Bev through the email sent to you from the membership listing, or through, to let her know how many in your group AND what you will be bringing for dinner.  We need it all – hams, turkeys, potatoes & gravy, stuffing, green bean casseroles, vegetables, salads, desserts, etc.  And if you have something special that you like to do for Thanksgiving, that is welcome, too.  If you let me know, I can try to make sure that all we have isn’t potatoes!

Finally, we always collect food for our local food bank.  Please be as generous as you can.  If one can is all you can afford, then please bring that.  BUT if you can afford more, please bring it.  And please, NO GLASS, only cans and boxes.  Our local fire station is always impressed with the car load of food I bring to them after our Thanksgiving dinner.

And when you are out shopping, get those toys for our Toys for Tots drive for our Christmas-Holiday Party on December 9th.
