The ongoing closure of the Joslyn Center means we will  be holding our general meetings virtually for the foreseeable future.  We will continue using the Zoom service (see below for more information about the Zoom service). 

Since we can’t enjoy our usual potluck birthday celebration together this year (and we missed out on a couple of potlucks last year as well) here is how we would like to handle our July Birthday Potluck!


1) We share our favorite dishes with each other in a new way! Jacki B has suggested we create an ESSS cookbook! Wahoo!! Ok, actually it will be a pdf collection of members’ recipes, but we’ll call it a cookbook anyway! Send Jacki your recipe you would have made for the potluck, and she'll compile into a file. We'll send the “cookbook” as a pdf file to everyone who participates. You can either print it or save the file for the next time you are craving that fabulous dish you remember from our ESSS potlucks! Just send your recipe to Jacki in whatever form is easiest: type into a document, scan it, or even take a photo (make sure it’s clear enough to read) and she'll take care of everything. And for those who can’t get their recipe to her electronically, make a copy and send to her via postal (aka snail) mail. For Jacki's email or postal mail address click here. If your recipe is from a published source (i.e., a cookbook, food blogger, etc.) as opposed to “an old family recipe”, denote the source for credit. Even if your recipe is “go to KFC” or “open the package of Sticky Fingers scone mix” (that was Jacki's recipe one year) all are welcome!


2) After our July 17th Guild Meeting, we all hang around on Zoom to eat our lunch together! Some may even make the recipe they would have made for the in-person potluck - how fun! We can talk about our recipes submitted for the cookbook and even stay online to knit after lunch - a real online potluck event!


Hoping all will join us for this alternative Potluck Birthday Celebration!

We will continue to use the Zoom service for our meetings while we are unable to meet together at the Joslyn Center (Zoom provides online meeting services for telephone or video meetings).  This means that we can all "meet" together and stay separate in our own homes.  We will also use Zoom for other times we want to gather together (such as Daily Social Knitting (which includes our WIP club on Wednesdays, Happy Hour on Fridays and Sit 'n Knit on the second and fourth Sunday).
