Our group is the original Dinner for 8, not affiliated with any other group. We share hospitality and dining together in our homes four nights a year, plus a picnic and a cocktail party.
* February cocktail party
* April dinner
* June dinner
* August picnic
* October dinner
* December dinner
When joining the group, members agree to host a dinner once during the year and are assigned a month based on their preference (April, June, October, or December). Guests are rotated, for example, from the April dinner to the June dinner, giving an opportunity to meet other members.
Prior to a dinner, the hosts receive their guest assignments and schedule their guests on a mutually agreed upon date.
Each host determines their menu and provides the entrée. Each guest is then asked to participate in the meal by bringing an appetizer, salad, or dessert. The wine selection is suggested by the host to complement the meal.
On the second Sunday in February, we start the New Year with a cocktail party in a member’s home. The club provides wine (supplied by $5 dues per person), and members bring appetizers. The Dinner for 8 picnic is held in a picnic grove in Oakmont on the second Sunday of August. Members bring a dish and their beverage of choice.
Dinner for 8 membership is open at any time. Please call Leslie Evans at 843-7408 for further information.
