Potluck: Please bring a dish to share that feeds 8 people. You'll earn a Time Bank hour by if you do. You'll earn 2 Time Credits if you bring a main dish! Please BRING your own plates, cups and utensils (and serving utensils). Bring a friend, orientation will follow the potluck. 



New Member Orientation: Want to join Our Time Bank? If you plan to attend an orientation (1 of the steps to join) you must attend the potluck first. One of our leadership team members will be giving the orientation after the potluck.


Swap - Exchange: If you have an item or anything that you no longer have a need for it, bring it to the potluck. Someone may want your treasure. You may find something you would like to have and could swap or not with that person. However, if your treasure remains by the end of the potluck, you will need to take it home with you. However…don’t give up, bring it back next month. There will be another potluck.


The potlucks are OTB sponsored events therefore alcohol, drugs, smoking and pets are prohibited.


Do you have a space that would hold 20 or so people? OTB is looking for more locations to host potlucks later this year. Contact Nicky if you're interested.
