On Sunday, November 30 the Grand Rapids Alliance of Cooperative Communities (GRACC) will host a potluck at the James Russell House from 6-9 p.m. 

Guests are encouraged to bring Thanksgiving dinner leftovers or make a dish to pass around. The evening will celebrate friends, family and an abundance of food.

This event is free and open to the public of all ages. 

Meet and greet will take place at 6 p.m. followed by Dharmas at 6:30 p.m. Dharmas is a thanks-giving activity where participants stand in a circle and each person takes a turn saying what they are grateful for. 

Dinner will commence at 7 p.m. and wine and beer are welcome. Following dinner will be a social hour beginning at 8 p.m. Board games, instruments and crafts will be available for entertainment. 



"The Grand Rapids Alliance of Cooperative Communities ( Fondly known as GRACC ) is an incorporated nonprofit co-op that is currently leasing to own the James Russell House, a 10,000 sq. ft mansion/apartments turned cooperative community. There are eight suites throughout the house, eight kitchens, 24 bedrooms, and 12 bathrooms. The first floor has a common dining room, living room and high-end residential kitchen from which we share scheduled community meals five nights/week. "
