Congregate Meals

Coming together for food, companionship, and even a little frolic!

Beginning on Wednesday, October 12, at 5pm, we will be offering in-person dining with a delightful twist. Join us from 5-7pm for a delicious dinner, lively company, and even some entertainment. SoTam Dames will provide music over dessert and coffee, after we’ve all had our fill of a delicious meal and conversation. This evening is offered to all by donation: pay what you can or think the meal is worth.

Because having companionship, feeding our souls, is literally as important as feeding our bodies, we look forward to welcoming folks to The Bearcamp Center for dinner, entertainment of some sort, and lively conversation with friends –old and new. This program will grow to include offerings of hair cuts by donation, once a month; showers for those who need the service; homework mentors for families with kiddos who would welcome a little academic support; college application counseling for anyone interested in education beyond high school.

We would like to begin, early in the winter, to open our doors an hour before the meal begins to those who might like a warm and welcoming place to gather for a regular game of cards, a book group, a sewing circle, or other social group open to all. Please reach out if you’re interested in helping to organize such a gathering!
