The Singleaires  have a long standing tradition of hosting a Sunday Potluck.  Most of our socializing and activity planning occur at the potlucks as well as enjoying a buffet of food provided by the participants.

The cost of food/drink bought to the potluck should be the equivalent of $8 and enough food to serve 6-8 persons. If your food contribution costs less than $8, the difference in supplemental cash may be paid at the door

On those rare occasions when you are unable to bring

a food item as designated in the food chart, you can instead make a contribution of $8 to be collected at the door and used for a future potluck.

Eight bucks is only a suggested minimum.  Feel free to be as generous as you feel like being.  Once, a member bought a 1/4 tub of Bascom Robbins ice cream.  Umm, yummy.

Contact or her assistant for additional information, to volunteer or just to say "HI" and "Thank you."

Please observe the alphabetical listing (by last name) for food items as noted and listed in the current quarterly news letter as well. This table will give you an idea of the appropriate food to bring to any Sunday Pot-luck. The food you are suggested to bring, will alternate each Singleaire quarter as shown.

Jan Apr Jul Oct A Main Dish or a Snack Drink or Dessert

Reminder; a bottle of two buck Chuck, is an insufficient offering. Pot Luck items should be robust enough to feed 6-8 people and worth approximately $8.00.



1.

Hiking Boots or dirty shoes should be removed before entering the potluck home.

2.

Potlucks start at 5 PM with drink & hors d’oeuvres followed by salads & entrees at 6 PM.  

3.

An optional Conservation Fund donation jar is posted at the door.  These funds are used to sustain our hiking trails and public parks that we use.  Please contribute 50 cents or more.  Our parks can really use the extra funds.

4.

Bring your dish already prepared or if last minute preparation is necessary, please do it yourself. Dishes that need to be warmed e.g. Pizza, is discouraged as often times, there will be no room or time to accommodate re-heating.  Entrees or items that need to be reheated will probably be served without reheating.

5.

THINK CONSERVATION! The less throw-away stuff we use at the potlucks, the better. e.g.  Bring your own plate, utensils, & cup.

6.

Please take your serving dish & utensils home to be washed; co-hosts are not expected to wash serving dishes.  Stay out of the kitchen unless you are a host or co-host.

7.

"Drink" above means non-alcoholic beverages (NO COLA DRINKS), wine (WHITE ONLY), or beer.

8.

Potlucks are restricted to Singleaires members & those guests who have participated in the scheduled activity for that day.

9.

Potlucks announced at hikes are for those who have participated in the scheduled Sunday activity only.

10.

Valuable Belongings should not be left unattended at the Potluck.  Neither the host or the Singleaires, is responsible for lost or stolen items.  If indeed you have ignored this advice then try contacting; Lost and Found.
