BoomRS are those who are Boomer Generation and those on the cusp, not so much an age as a mindset, getting together to take advantage of Center City life, events and activities, as well as social, spiritual and educational opportunities at RS. Singles and couples welcome.

Wednesday, January 10, 2018 - 6:30pm

Over-indulged during the holidays?  Tired of the same old recipes?  Made a New Year’s resolution to eat healthier?  Or just want to shake away the winter blahs and join friends for a fun-filled evening?  

Join us for a potluck of easy, healthy, & delicious appetizers and desserts, and info about healthy eating with Joan Katz, a registered dietitian and nutrition expert.  Imagine you are in sunny Greece, Israel, or Italy as you learn about the delicious Mediterranean Diet, and herbs and spices that make you healthier and your food much more tasty!

Just bring wine or your favorite beverage to share and an appetizer or dessert.

RSVP and let us know what you are bringing to Eileen Goldstein ([email protected]) and Carole Wilder ([email protected]).
