Adult community members can register for the upcoming A Seat at the Table (ASATT) gathering to be held on Friday, Aug. 23, from 6-8 p.m. at Green Meadow United Methodist Church, 1633 Louisville Road, Alcoa. ASATT brings people from diverse backgrounds together for conversation over a shared meal. Through a guided discussion, participants around the table share their stories and aspirations, listen closely to one another, form new friendships and discover how much they really have in common. Conversations such as those found at ASATT help to build community, combat stereotypes and establish connections.

There is no charge to attend, but participants need to sign up no later than Aug. 20 by calling 503-894-0187 or sending an email to:
