Break up the winter blahs by coming to the Pines resident Pot Luck dinner “Everything Red” to be held in the Baggs Room on Sunday, February 18th at noon. All Pines residents are invited to attend but if you do plan to attend, it would be helpful if you would sign up and indicate what kind of dish you will bring. Organizers are asking for this month food donations are Red in Color, to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Food donations do not have to be homemade so if you are not a cook, don’t let that stop you. Go to the grocery store and pick up something to bring.
