PSC’s Fall International Potluck Dinner
Description:

We want you to come!  Bring your nearest and dearest plus anyone else you are hosting this weekend. Potluck, as always - we need salads, main dishes, and desserts, in no particular order. (Do not make the dish or the RSVP a hurdle.  There will be plenty!) Email Glen Thomas (glenwood@sas.upenn.edu) that you are coming and the number of guests you are bringing (so we can make sure we do not run out of beverages). There will be a sign up sheet, map and directions in the front office.
