We will enjoy a potluck dinner (bring a dish if you can!) and engage in some spiritual exploration, talking about the Seven Principles and how we can live our faith. Raised Unitarian Universalist and hoping to meet others here at Wes? Interested in becoming part of a spiritual community? Or maybe you’ve never set foot in a UU church/fellowship/society/etc. but would like to learn more about a religion that values freedom, reason, and tolerance? We would love to have you!

This is another installment in our series of interviews with student groups at Wesleyan.
I sat down last week with Ari Ebstein ’16 and Yael Horowitz ’17 to talk about the Middletown Potluck group. With a big fundraiser underway and an upcoming potluck (today from 6-8pm!) we had much to talk about with regards to social justice, sharing food, and funding a homeless lockers campaign.
Middletown potluck is a group dedicated to building a community between Middletown residents and Wesleyan students. Based strongly out of 200 church, the group began spring semester of 2013. Since its inception the group has already hosted six potlucks, each with a certain theme. Ari explained choosing the themes, “In the beginning we didn’t really have any community connections so the first ideas we had were ours. But since then we have really tried to get the Middletown community involved in deciding. It’s about being able to facilitate dinners and themes that emerge from the community.”
Ari Ebstein ’16 makes a decent argument about doing away with locked doors in communal spaces. Now he invites you to partake in community projects:
Middletown Potluck is a student group that partners with community organizations to host potluck dinners around social justice issues. This semester, based on the relations we’ve formed with various community groups in the past year, we’re trying to expand what we do outside of potlucks to assist in more community projects. To do this we need MOAR PPL, so if the prospect of helping achieve social justice in Middletown–in as minimally paternalistic a way as possible–appeals to you, then come to our meeting tonight @ 9pm, 200 Church. :)
Date: Today, February 10
Time: 9:00 – 10:00 PM
Place: 200 Church
Cost: your heart
From Sara Feldman ’17, on behalf of Middletown Potluck:
Ever thought that you could really use something sweet and homemade to go with your late night coffee and studying?
Of course you have. Come to Espwesso on Thursday night for some awesome treats! Pay what you can, and all proceeds will go directly to buying lockers to secure the personal property of homeless citizens in Middletown. These lockers are essential for homeless people as there are no other ways to safeguard their few and valuable belongings, which are often stolen because of a lack of proper storage. Come to Espwesso, buy yummy treats, and feel good about it, too.
Time: 9:00PM – 12:00AM
Place: Right outside Espwesso!
Cost: Pay what you can (but please pay something!)
Ari Ebstein ’16 is inviting you to come to the Middletown Potluck tonight in 200 Church from 5:30-8:00. Presenters from the Middletown Historical Society and Wesleyan Professor of History Ronald Schatz will be presenting and leading discussions about Middletown’s history. All they ask is that you “bring homies, and food if you’d like.”
What: Middletown Potluck on Middletown History
When: Sunday (tonight!), 5:30 – 8
Where: 200 Church

Ari Ebstein ’16 is hungry for community bonding, and you should be, too:
