On Friday, November 1, 2019 forty members and guests attended the Joy of Eating Happy Hour Happenings at the home of Maria Meredith. The group provided fifteen different appetizers and four desserts to share, which was the perfect setting for sparking conversation while enjoying new and classic dishes and sipping wine. A ‘Guess Your Best’ How Many Corks in the Jar and a Happy Hour themed Trivia Game encouraged individual and team talents to produce their best score. Winners were Carrie Hayden with a perfect score for the Guess Your Best corks game, with Vicki DiPaolo as runner up, as well as Kay Bair winning the trivia game, with runner up Jeannine Birbil representing her team. The group definitely made the evening “Happy” and “High ‘Spirits'-ed”. Many thanks to all for their wonderful fellowship and for Maria snagging a great co-host Joanne Butz!

On April 17, 2019 twenty nine UPWC members and guests enjoyed good company and great tasting ‘finger lickin’ BBQ favorites. Everyone was generous in delivering family sized main dishes and sides, and happily went home with empty bowls and contented smiles having satisfied their BBQ cravings. No doubt that smokin’ good food and chillin’ guests make a great recipe for fun.
