Friendly 8s are informal groups of approximately 8 people, who get together monthly to learn to know one another better usually over a potluck meal in some one's home, but there are other ways of finding an opportunity to share food, joys and concerns, and to get to know each other more deeply. If you are interested in participating in the next round of Friendly 8's that begins in September, please fill out a form located on the table near the donation box and give to a member of Outreach Committee.
