Dinners with Friends
Started in 1995, Northaven now has a number of small groups called "Dinner with Friends" that gather for the warmth and hospitality that help build a sense of community. These dinner groups simply give Northaven people the opportunity to know each other at a deeper level. If interested in knowing more , please contact Jack Evans or Connie Marshall or sign up in the Atrium.
