Village Supper Club

Meets monthly for lunch or dinner

2 Village Supper Clubs are in full swing and we are currently forming the 3rd.  Please let us know if you’re interested in joining a group.  Each group is self-governing – choosing dates, times, and locations that work for the group.  Please email or call if you’d like to join the next group.  Each group is capped at about 10 members and volunteers.  It’s a great way to get to try local restaurants while getting to know others in the Village.  [email protected] or 206-789-1217.
