Easter potluck full of tasty treats

by: SUBMITTED PHOTO - The Easter potluck dinner at the West Linn Adult Community Center featured ham and turkey and lots of delicious desserts, like these jelly bean eggs.The Easter Bunny had a feast at the West Linn Adult Community Center when he stopped by on March 29 for the annual Easter Potluck Dinner.

Hams and turkeys were the main attractions with a wide variety of scrumptious delicacies to compliment them. A holiday potluck at the senior center is kind of like going to your favorite aunt’s house for a holiday meal when you were a kid. There are lots of your favorite foods all in one place. There are sweet potatoes, scalloped potatoes, mashed potatoes and gravy, homemade potato salad, lots of deviled eggs (some with salad shrimp on top) and desserts. LOTS of desserts!

The center was decorated in its Easter finest enjoying a good-sized crowd. For our holiday dinners (Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas) we request reservations so we know how much meat to prepare. A potluck dish is optional. For anyone who would like to bring a dish that serves at least 8, the cost of your dinner is $2. For those attending without a dish to share, the cost is $5. It’s quite a bargain for such a wonderful meal to enjoy with great company. If you haven’t attended one of our holiday potluck dinners before, keep it in mind for the future.

Of course the gift shop was open to show off all of its great treasures. It is the best kept secret in West Linn, you know. So if you haven’t been in to browse the goods, take the time Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. to stop in and see what is there that you can’t live without!

Here are the upcoming week’s activities. Call the WLACC at 503-557-4704 for specific times and possible fees. Also, all meals listed below are subject to change, but only for the better. Computer assistance is currently being offered by appointment between 9 a.m. and noon, every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
