An alcohol-free, family
oriented community potluck is planned to
support federal employees not working or
impacted due to the federal government furlough.
The event will be Tuesday, Jan 15, from
5:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Lovatt Room of the
Pinedale Library, 155 S. Tyler Ave.
The community is asked to join in providing a potluck dish to support employees who
have been furloughed or are not being paid.
Multiple community organizations are joining to express concern and caring for the
many community members working for federal agencies and wondering when they will
receive their next paychecks.
“We care for and rely on our public lands and programs and those who manage them
for our benefit,” said organizer Karla Bird. “We appreciate the care that these employees
give to their many tasks and we collectively hope for a swift resolution of funding issues.”
Bring a dish to share, if you can spare one, or bring your appetite and your own table
settings. A limited supply will be provided. There will be plenty of food if you are unable
Families are welcome and cooks are encouraged to share recipe copies.
