  • one lantern per child (see here for our make-a-lantern workshop on Nov. 6)
  • a contribution for the potluck meal — main dish, side, salad, or dessert
  • if possible, your own plates, cups and cutlery.  

Please deliver your food and other items you want to leave (no valuables) to the community room before heading out again to the fire pit, where we will meet to sing a few St. Martin’s songs, led by members of the Madison Männerchor.

Around 5 PM we will head out for the lantern parade through the Shorewood Hills neighborhood (we recommend warm and reflective clothing). After the lantern parade, we will meet again at the community room and enjoy our potluck dinner.
