|Know Thy Neighbor
|On the third Saturday of each month, from October through May, 7PM volunteer Weatherby Lake residents
rotate hosting a casual gathering in their homes. About 6 to 10 other residents are randomly assigned to each
host home, but neither the host nor the guest knows who they will be gathering with. Guests bring a preassigned
food item and hosts provide only the main entree and beverages. The focus is not on the meal, but rather on
meeting and getting better acquainted with our neighbors and promoting improved understanding among the
residents of Weatherby Lake. "Know Thy Neighbor" supports all other Weatherby Lake programs and
organizations an encourages good will among neighbors. This is an excellent informal way to meet new and
longtime residents (couples and singles). Contact Pat Medill 741-1569 e-mail at email@example.com. Always an
interesting and enjoyable experience.
