What is a gift circle? Here is a site that describes the idea and the practice in as much depth as you want:
So here’s how it goes: Make a dish that you like (enough for three people) and bring it at 7:00 pm. After we’ve eaten, at about 7:45 pm, we make a circle and establish what gifts and needs are present in the circle this month, then match them.
What ensues? Stronger community bonds, needs met, gifts accepted, hearts opened, lives bettered. Please come and join us. Everyone is welcome, and from those who can afford it, a $5 donation helps us pay for use of the hall and kitchen. We end at 9:00 pm or thereabouts.
So come to the lovely St Albans Parish Hall, on Washington Street at Curtis on the Albany-Berkeley border, every first Tuesday of the month, starting again in Spetember. In the summer we start at 7 pm. In the winter months (November – March) we start earlier at 6:30 pm
Upcoming dates: Tuesday May 6, Tuesday September 2, Tuesday October 7, Tuesday November 4 (6:30 pm start) and Tuesday December 2 (6:30 pm start))
