Circle Dinners are a great way to foster community building at UUSM! This program consists of four Saturday-evening dinners for eight people, with one dinner taking place each month during the early months of the calendar year. Each dinner has four paired participants (create your own pairing, or let us do that for you), with rotating responsibilities for hosting (at your home or at UUSM), or providing the main dish, salad and wine, or dessert / bread & butter. The food is always great, but it’s the company and stimulating conversation that really make for a wonderful evening! Circle Dinners permit participants to get better acquainted with other UUSM members and friends in a relaxed atmosphere. Program signup usually takes place during the month of December.

For 2019, Circle Dinners will take place on the evenings of January 25, February 29, March 28, and April 25.. (All four dates are the last Saturday evenings of each month, January through April.)

To learn more about this program, send an email to Circle Dinners Coordinators Anne Silver and Kathy Van Leuwen.
