June 2… First Friday Potluck + A ‘Surprise’ Party!

The weather looks fine for throwing open the front doors at Extend-a-Family and filling up the outdoor picnic tables for a spring evening supper, al fresco!

Friday June 2

6:00 – 8:00pm
@ W.A.L.E.S building, Extend-a-Family
16 Braun Street

Friday potlucks are a great opportunity for…

  • Belonging and community
  • Sharing great food!!!!
  • Meeting new friends or reconnecting with old ones…
  • Shaping our neighbourhood to be the best place to live!

Our monthly potlucks are a collaborative event with Extend A Family’s W.A.L.E.S. program for adults with developmental challenges. This collaborative dinner was due in part to the our amazing and dedicated Extend a Family community builder Matt Riehl. Matt has been an integral part of connecting our neighbourhood, developing working groups and making midtown a fantastic welcoming hood to live in! BUT, Matt is moving to Sudbury with his family this July!

As a way to honour his time here and to say good luck, the June 2nd potluck is going to be a “farewell party” for Matt and his family. Matt does not know about this and his partner Sandy said he will be thrilled! Please bring a vegetarian potluck item to share. If you would like to also bring an instrument to join in a musical jam, that would also be great….Matt loves music and this would really add to the night.
Please share this invite with anyone who knows Matt. Lets make this the biggest potluck in our history!
