Potluck Groups

Potluck groups are available as a way of meeting other members socially. Eight members in each group meet four times during the five-month periods Sept.-Jan. and March-July. Each potluck is held in a different members' home; host provides the entree and other members bring the vegetable, salad and dessert. In February and August, an all-member potluck is held at which time members are assigned to new groups. Potluck groups are open to couples and singles alike.

The first Potluck of 2014 will be in February at Jack and Harriet Kent’s, 625-7847, unless you hear from the Jeans before that. Date TBA by hosts. RSVP to hosts, if you want to join and come.

This group meets in our homes. Hosts prepare entrée. Members bring a different food veggie/fruit salad, dessert, etc. at host’s discretion each time.

Restaurant Groups

This is a new option available this year. Wouldn't it be fun to enjoy eating out in the various restaurants in Mankato with old and new friends?

We have divided the year into three time periods: Sept-Dec, Jan-April, May-August. People can register for the time periods which suit their schedules. We will send out the new group lists in Sept., Jan., and April. We will meet for four meals during this time period with groups selecting their own restaurants. Acting upon suggestions from members, we are now forming groups of six people instead of eight to improve the ease of conversations. We welcome all members, singles and couples.

To join a restaurant group, please call Jan Rozeboom 507-389-2011 or contact the office at mall@mnsu.edu or 507-389-2011.
