The 2018 Longest Tablelongest table

Sunday, April 22, 6:00 pm, Sanctuary
UUCT Coordinator: Bonnie Abellera

Three years ago, the City of Tallahassee implemented a simple way of getting people together to share stories over a meal. Last year, UUCT had between 35-40 people for dinner.

With many residents wanting to do more to break down racial, cultural, economic and other social barriers in our community, Tallahassee continues the conversations on Sunday, April 22nd at 6 pm.

Once again, this event will consist of dinners and discussions taking place simultaneously in homes, restaurants, churches, and other gathering places across our community. Our third in-home dinner will be potluck, please bring a favorite dish to share!

If you plan to attend, please go to the website and click on the RSVP button. We are asking all UUCT members and friends to RSVP for planning purposes. You will receive a confirmation e-mail from the City of Tallahassee; please respond to that email and indicate that you plan to attend the Longest Table at the UU Church of Tallahassee. The City’s event coordinators will be assigning people based on their preferred location.
