RACCC Potluck Dinner Sat Nov 16 5:30pm-9pm

Members and guests are invited to come outto the annual RACCC Potluck party to share stories, memories (dare we say embarassing videos!) and the always delicious food for which our members are famous.

Join us for an evening of fun and friendship and honour those outstanding members receiving awards for their volunteering and contributions.

This year the event will be at a new location: the Rideau Park United Church - Beecroft Hall on Saturday, November 16th, from 5:30 to 9:00 p.m. The hall is located at 2203 Alta Vista Drive (where the stop sign is located at the corner of Cunningham Avenue). OC Transpo route 44 stops across the street. There is plenty of free parking beside the church and behind the hall.

Please: if bringing a dish that requires heating, bring an extension cord and power bar.

In the tradition of the club, please bring your own plates, cutlery and cups. The kitchen has multiple sinks in the kitchen to wash your dishes after eating. There is also plenty of kitchen counter space for food preparation prior to the dinner.

Please note that alcohol is not permitted at this event.

If you have any questions or wish to volunteer to assist in setting up the event location, please contact Paul H.
