Dinner Group: Adventures in Dining

The dinner group meets once a month from October to June.  

The group now goes out to local restaurants instead of cooking meals themselves. The dinners start at 6 p.m. and take place the last Thursday of the month (except for October this year when the date is October 24 to avoid dining out on Halloween).  The group invites anyone from the club to join them when they dine out at a restaurant.  Marg Green (mjgreen@cogeco.ca) is this year’s convener. 

However, everything has changed, and the group will no longer be meeting in restaurants.  They have been meeting virtually and discussed innovative ways to continue to connect through Zoom about dining on the last Thursday of the month.  Check the newsletters for the latest plans.

At the October Zoom meeting, members talked about the dinners they had earlier that month ordered and enjoyed from Canadore College’s 100 Elements.  Some of the members (some talking on Zoom and others with their meals) and one of the menus appear below:
