The Neighborhood Council of Westchester/Playa (NCWP) will hold a community potluck on Tuesday, January 6. There will be no business items on the agenda for January.
“This is the second annual potluck and we hope that our community members will join us and help keep this an annual event,” said NCWP president Cyndi Hench. “The idea for the potluck is to create time for Westchester and Playa residents to interact with Neighborhood Council board members in a casual setting. It’s a great opportunity for the board members to get to hear from residents one on one and for all of us to get better acquainted.”
Attendees are invited to bring their favorite dish to share at the meeting.
The potluck will start at 6:30 p.m. in the NCWP’s regular meeting space, the Westchester Community Room, located at 7166 Manchester Ave. in Westchester.
