The Bridging Generations Professionals Board welcomes all members and their guests to this year’s annual fall potluck. We will gather via Zoom to celebrate autumn, community, and one another. The entertainment portion of this year’s potluck will be provided by Jonathan Miller, conductor of the Sounds Good! Choir and Good Memories Choir. Jonathan will tell us about the choirs, how they support memory health, followed by a holiday singalong demonstration that members and guests are welcome to join.

Pickup or delivery? You Decide!

While we can’t share our favorite dishes with fellow members, we invite you to share a Thanksgiving-inspired gourmet meal made especially for us by local chef, Frank Kwaitkowski from Get in the Kitchen (in Lakeview). You also can enjoy your own meal, appetizer or drink from home while you participate in our virtual potluck!

To pre-order this delicious meal (menu below), please CLICK HERE. Each meal is $28 per person, including all taxes and fees. You can order more than one meal, and save one for Thanksgiving Day! Meals will come prepared and will need to be reheated in the oven for 15-20 minutes.

Members may choose to pick up their order(s) on Sunday, November 22 from 3617 N Broadway between 12–4 PM, OR request to have a volunteer deliver your order between 12–4 PM. Orders MUST be placed by Monday, November 16.
