At 6PM, there will be a Sanctuary Community Potluck to ring in the autumn and full calendar of many great events to come. Bring a dish and lend a hand!

We've had a series of really great events this season, and if you haven't made it here, stay tuned for videos soon. But in the meantime I thought it would be nice to share something from the really great potluck dinners we've had before some of the events.
The latest hit was a Tunisian Vegetable Stew brought by volunteer coordinator and superstar Nancy. She was kind enough to email the recipe around — and now here it is for everyone to enjoy.
(For more delicious foods, why not participate in our next potluck? Watch our facebook page and event pages on this site for updates about when potlucks will be happening.)
Several people asked me for the recipe for this delicious and easy dish from Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home (1994):
1 ½ cups sliced onions
5:30pm Potluck: meet & greet the filmmakers, plus "Daddyless," an installation by Chelsea and Victoria Kereszi

What happens when ordinary Americans pay a visit to ordinary Iranians whom they have never met?
Citizen diplomats Priscilla Fairbank, Jonathan Hill and Barbara Spring share stories and pictures from their December 2007 tour in Iran with Fellowship of Reconciliation. They met everyday people of all ages and walks of life: casual bazaar shoppers, high school and college students, children and parents on the street or in public parks, clerics in mosques.
Come for an evening of enlightenment about present day Iran and its rich history and culture.
Presented by Iran Working Group of Upper Hudson Peace Action
