Potluck Changes:

Starting in May 2014, The Living Tradition will not be allowed to store potluck supplies at the Anaheim Downtown Community Center.  As a result, we are switching to a simpler format for our potluck.  We will use disposable products, although you are welcome to bring your own dinnerware and utensils.  Our food and snacks will continue to be potluck, but we encourage everyone to bring finger foods - sweet and savory - that are easy to serve and eat.  Finger foods also facilitate a quicker clean up.
