Best Yet Nights

Especially favored are the Best Yet Nights, typically the last Thursday of the month, where the attendees enjoy a potluck dinner and special entertainment.  

As of now, there will be no meal. We will begin at 6:30 pm. We will comply with social distancing and will have someone to help you with seating. If you want to wear a mask, please feel free to do so. We love to greet each other with hand-shakes and hugs. But we must greet from a distance out of respect for the health of others.
