ENTERTAINING

 (each group member hosts one time per rotation)

Dining at the Grill This group gets together at the Kenmure Country Club (KCC) Grill Room one evening each month.

Dining In Groups get together once a month in one another's homes  (Offered in June - September Rotation only)

  • Participants need not be gourmet, or even great cooks, and should not think of it as a dinner party but rather just a casual way to get together with new friends and neighbors. 

  • The host coordinates the date with the group; each couple/single takes a turn as the host once in each 4-month rotation.

  • The host provides beverages, along with the main course.

  • The host assigns each other couple/single one course to bring - appetizer, salad, vegetable, dessert. 

  • It is a good idea to check with everyone to see if they have any food allergies or dislikes.

  • You'll find the essence of Kenmure Newcomers & Neighbors in this meet and greet activity for anyone interested in a casual get-together.
