International Thanksgiving potluck dinner

ach year on the fourth Thursday in November, Americans gather for a day of feasting with family and friends. Following that tradition, Postdoctoral Council (PDC) and the Davis International Center (Davis IC) are hosting an International Thanksgiving dinner. A turkey will be sponsored by the Davis IC and some basic drinks (wine, beer and soda) will be provided by PDC. We will get together at 4pm to watch football, eat and drink. The exact location is yet to be confirmed.

We ask that everyone bring a dish from their home to share, please have look at the list indicated on the form below (link posted) to act as a guideline. You can also bring a dish from your country or region as an alternative. The dish can be a main course, side dish, appetiser or dessert. In terms of drinks it’s BYOB, to complement what will provided as indicated above.

Important: We are also looking for a space with a community room + kitchen, please contact us if you have access to such a location (e.g. could be part of your apartment complex).

To facilitate smooth planning, RSVP’s are required. To sign up, please answer a few questions and leave your email address.
