Food For Thought

FRIDAY, June 14 (Note Day Change)

Meet at FCCEH @ 6:00pm to Carpool/Caravan over to Camp Neipsic

A group for young professionals (under 40) to discuss spirituality with laughter over food.

This month’s theme is Forgiveness in the Forest: Fun, food & Forgiveness. Stories and discussion over a campfire at Camp Neipsic. Bring a side or drink to share.  Hot dogs, sausage dogs and maybe kielbasa dogs for our main dish.  S’Mores with different chocolates for dessert.

Camp Neipsic is at 1354 Neipsic Road in Glastonbury, CT. The entrance is somewhat hidden on the right hand side of the road, just before the parking lot for Eastbury School. There is a white post marking the entrance to camp.
