“Bring your favourite potato dish and recipe to be added to our cookbook,” says president Mary Forbes.

She encourages members to bring a friend to the event and anyone interested in preserving the potato house to attend.

There will be a  short slide show at 6:30 p.m. on the society’s successes in 2011.

The society is also starting a new letter writing campaign to Steward McLean and Mike Holmes.

The door prize for the evening is a thermal imaging assessment of home insulation, or where it may be lacking, which Forbes says is valued at $500.
