ISHRA Winter Social January 29, 2017

Be sure to mark your calendar for this year’s Winter Social on Sunday, January 29, 2017 at the First Congregational Church of Kittery Point. The snow date (yes, snow) is February 5th.

Visit with your ISHRA friends off season and share a meal and some stories about the islands. Please bring a main dish, side dish or desert or beverage to share (Last year’s offerings were a delicious testament to the culinary skills of our members). Don’t forget to bring your camera and photo albums!

The social last year was enjoyed by all who attended, with a great meal featuring ham, turkey and a fabulous seafood chowder, a silent auction, and a new ISHRA conference scholarship to honor longtime Shoaler and ISHRA member Alice Gordan.

The social will be held from 1:00 – 3:30.

Don’t miss out on the fun this year! See you at the Winter Social.
