Phil-up the Pig invites everyone to the Hog for a potluck dinner and time to socialize and get to know each other.

Potluck Dinner at 6:00pm. Please bring a side dish or dessert to pass. Phil-up is providing hot pulled pork (oink!) sandwiches. Also provided: dinnerware, juices, coffee and teas. Bring your voices for some circle singing after dinner. Instruments welcome, too. Free parking across the street in the parking lot.
