EATS (The Eating and Tasting Society) is a fun, diverse group of 25 ladies, divided into 3 groups.  Each group gets together every three months, to plan and prepare a lunch for all the members.  Before COVID, luncheons were held either at a member’s home or at Lapham Community Center.  Recipes are emailed to members and discussed at the luncheon.  There are 9 luncheons each year on the second Thursday of each month (except Dec., July and Aug.).
