I’m really looking forward to our combined potluck and letter-writing party – good food and good works all in one night! I’ll bring Martinelli’s cider and sparkling water. (I also find it handy to bring my own return address labels from home – this is just a reminder in case others want to do the same – but please be aware that you don’t have to disclose your address if you’d rather not.)
I’ll bring a loaf of zucchini bread.
I’ll bring a pie. Marylou
