Dear Members,

There are some fun events happening in October (and a Thanksgiving announcement!) and I wanted to share them here.

First, however, just a reminder that our first-ever Vegan Pop-Up Market was rescheduled to November 23 (it's not today!).

October is Vegetarian Awareness Month! Look what we have planned for you:

October 2: Terrific Tofu & Tempeh (Cooking Demonstration Class)
October 5 (and every Saturday in October): Eat and Critique! Vegan MasterChef Challenge
October 8: Spice Island Grill's Meat-Free Tuesday All You Can Eat Buffet (Go when you can!)
October 8 (weekly): No-Meat Athlete 5k Fun Run (Weekly!)
October 12: Substituting Eggs In Baking (FREE demo)
October 12 and 13: Colorado Springs Women's Living Expo (NOT a gathering, go when you can!)
October 16: Meet the Vitamix! (FREE Vegan Cooking Class)
October 17: Running on Plants: A Lecture and Booking Signing Event with Matt Frazier
October 18: Climb The Incline with No Meat Athlete Matt Frazier!
October 19: * Walk For Farm Animals *
October 23: Bulk Booking Basics (Cooking Demonstration Class)
October 24: "Speciesism: The Movie " FREE Film Screening Event

And in November, two very special events:

November 23: Vegan Pop-Up Market
November 24: Vegan Thanksgiving Dinner ($20 per person)

Finally, I want to thank you for taking the time to respond to our survey, with 41 respondents we learned the following:

  • Nearly 50% of the group is vegan
  • You are most interested in plant-based classes, followed by social activities (like bowling and hiking), restaurant events (November restaurant events will be posted soon!), and potlucks (stay tuned for our holiday potluck announcement!).
  • Most of you prefer to come to events, not host them.

YOU make up the vibrancy of this group and we are so grateful for you. We look forward to seeing you at a future event!
