PIMC is hosting a family inclusive potluck gathering on Sat., Oct. 26 in the late afternoon/early evening - when people with kids in the sangha can socialize while the kids run amok (with the benefit of many adults around keeping an eye on the little ones). It will be a relaxed time with food and music. This will be an excellent opportunity to get to meet other families for whom mindful child rearing is a priority.
