Neighbors coming together for South Bethany potluck

Winters at the beach are peaceful, but sometimes quiet. So South Bethany is warming the season with its inaugural town potluck supper on Saturday, Feb. 20. The feast begins at South Bethany Town Hall at 6 p.m.

“We’re just looking forward to a good turnout and lots of good fellowship,” said Lisa Saxton, a member of the Town’s Communications & Public Relations Committee.

“We’re trying to have more get-together type things, and that’s what our committee’s in charge of,” Saxton said of the new event. “We’re hoping to do several things that will get the homeowners together, … keep the communication with everybody during the off-months, when there’s not [much happening].”

In South Bethany, community breakfasts and dinners have already become a favorite for fellowship. From a New Year’s breakfast to the summertime barbecue, different town groups have come together at Town Hall feasts. Now, it’s a potluck.

“We’re trying to do things that get more people involved … trying to come up with new ideas,” Saxton said.

Many property owners fly south for winter. But soon, they’ll be “settling back in for the end of winter and early spring. We thought that would be a good time, before we get to busy with Easter,” she added.

Coffee and cold beverages will be provided, but other drinks are “BYOB.”

Everyone attending is being asked to contribute a dish, based on their last names, beginning with A-J (main dish), K-R (salad) and S-Z (dessert). Guests must RSVP to Lisa Saxton at
