      Please bring a raw food dish that many people can sample. Consider

      of fruits, salad, nut pate, or raw desserts.

      Show off any talents you may have! You are encouraged to sing, play
      an instrument, show artwork, read your creative writing and poetry,
      comedy, performance or demonstrate your special uniqueness.

      Not the creative type? That's okay... You can bring any Show & Tell
      item to share. This is your opportunity to share with the community
      something interesting about yourself. An heirloom, special
      photograph, collection, keepsake of some kind. Make it fun,
      endearing, unique, personal, or just a joke!

      Each person will be given up to 5 minutes. The show will begin in the
      early part of the evening. Please contact Donna Perrone if you need
      special assistance in advance. If you are a singer, she may be able
      to team you up with a guitar player or keyboardist. (Please also
