On OCTOBER 7 our potluck invites special guest, Alexa Hauser of the Diverse Housing Working Group to tell us about how that group is going about ensuring more options for affordable housing in Albany.
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, we make a circle and establish what gifts and needs are present in the circle this month, then more often than not, match them! Here is a site that describes the idea and the practice of a gift circle in as much depth as you want: http://communityspirituality.wordpress.com/gift-circle/
What comes out all this? 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. Through 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)
