Neighbors Eating Together (NET) dinners in Middleburgh began when we heard about other Reformed Churches in the region hosting a community meal. Our first dinner was in August, 2011, a couple weeks before a flood. We mopped up for a year before our building was ready. Simultaneously, the recovery work in Middleburgh included churches providing thousands of meals to the community and volunteers. We merged the effort to continue a community meal every week from September to late Spring.
Each week a different church hosted. People have many reasons for coming, but we have a great time of eating together and enjoying company. The dinners are free-of-charge, but if you would like to help contact a host church to find out where you can pitch in.
As of September 2016, most of the churches, as well as us, have suspended our usual schedule because we needed a break. Our Lady of the Valley Roman Catholic church has continued. We plan on hosting a dinner or two later this year and early next year. Stay tuned!
