Planning Meeting for the Rancho Park Thanksgiving Day Potluck

****Please note that this event is promoted in many places so my RSVP reflects my estimate of attendees from other groups.****

******PLEASE INVITE all your friends who you think might be interested in helping plan for this event.******

It's almost time for this year's Thanksgiving Day Vegan Potluck Picnic at Rancho Park! In case you are not familiar with this event that has occurred every year for more than 20 years and it is Los Angeles' biggest vegan potluck event of the year. Hundreds of people attend annually. We need your help to make this event even better! Please join us so we can plan the details as a community, figure out who will assume what role, and make certain that we do everything that needs to be done for the event to run smoothly. We need your ideas, love, energy and contributions. Please join us!

You are welcome to bring a dish or snack if you wish. This planning event is not a potluck so a dish is not required. If you intend to eat, please bring your own plate/ bowl and utensils. It is also recommended to bring sun protection, a blanket to sit on and a cup for water.

Please arrive promptly at 10AM.

If you need to call the day of the event: Dave:[masked] Rachel:[masked]


Weather permitting, we will meet at the same place where we meet for the Thanksgiving day gathering every year. In the event of inclement weather, an alternative location will be posted in this event description.

Enter Park at the north entrance on Motor Avenue (the first entrance south of Pico Blvd). When you enter the park, there is a parking area on the left. Drive passed this parking area and follow the road to the next parking area which is a few hundred feet down. Walk to the picnic tables across the grass and behind the baseball field, .
(There is another picnic area at the far end and close to the parking lot, this is not our picnic area).


Plan your trip:
The closest holiday bus stop is at Pico Blvd/Motor Ave on the Santa Monica Big Blue Bus route 7.
