International Potluck Themes Announced
January 11, 2018
Earlier this year we announced our New Year's Resolutions for 2018.
Included was an announcement that throughout 2018, GlobalJax Members and 904 Ambassadors will be invited to attend a monthly international potluck.
Attendees are asked to bring a $10 donation and a dish of cultural or personal significance to this monthly gathering designed so that GlobalJax members can stay connected, meet international leaders, make new friends, learn about other cultures and experience a culinary adventure! You never know what you're going to get to try or who you are going to meet but you do know you will leave encouraged and more knowledgeable about the world.
And so, without further delay, we proudly announce the #InternationalPotluckJax Themes for #2018!
