Our Holidays Potluck Returns: December 16


Our customary potluck dinner to celebrate the winter holidays (which include Christmas, Chanukah, New Year’s Day, and most important to pagans, the winter solstice) didn’t happen last year.  So the Iowa City Area Group of the Sierra Club is especially pleased to announce the 2012 event.  All Sierra Club members are warmly invited to attend, and we hope you can join us for the good food and company.


The winter holidays potluck will take place on Sunday, December 16, at the energy-efficient home of Conservation Chair Jim Baker and his wife Nancy, 30 Alder Court, in the Walnut Ridge neighborhood on the far west side of Iowa City.  The festivities will begin at 4:00 p.m., with dinner served around 6:00.  So you can arrive later and still find plenty to eat.


Please bring a dish -- appetizer, entrée, side, or dessert -- to serve 8-10 people.  We will supply everything else: beverages, glasses, plates, eating utensils, napkins, etc.  Culinary creativity is always appreciated deeply, but, if need be, a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken or some carry-out General Tso’s Chicken will do fine (at least it will with our host).


We may or may not have a formal presentation following dinner on a topic TBA.  However, we do have plenty to celebrate: a huge victory in the 2012 election, significant progress toward curbing global warming, and a continuing green trend in the public.  If you have a request for a program at the potluck, please send it to Jim Baker.


No RSVP.  If you have questions or concerns, please contact Jim Baker at 319-688-9853 or
