SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: THIS YEAR'S RAW THANKSGIVING EVENT IS AT A NEW VENUE! IN YEARS PAST, THE POTLUCK WAS HELD AT THE CHAVEZ'S HOUSE IN OREGON CITY. THIS YEAR WE WILL BE MEETING AT ANDY'S HOUSE IN MILWAUKIE, RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER FROM OUR WEEKLY SUNDAY SUPPER MEETING PLACE!

 

For the 5th year in a row, Portland's raw vegan community will join together for an "Orphan's Thanksgiving." Are you not into the whole "stuffing yourself with Turkey until you pass out, then watch the ball game on TV" kinda thing? Then join us on Thanksgiving afternoon for an amazing raw vegan potluck. Simply bring a raw vegan dish to share with the rest of the gang, and we will all enjoy in the bounty that nature provides.


Later on, we'll all gather around the big screen to watch one of the latest released documentaries titled "Planeat". This film features the latest research from Doctors T. Colin Campbell and Caldwell Esselstyn Jr.

      Thanks, Judith. With the longer commute time by bus, I might as well enjoy the bike ride, as the weather seems decent. See ya there :)

    Thanks! Valerie,
    but that is way out of the way for folks in the NW and SW.
    It's better for me to take the buses directly to Milwaukie.

    My diet seems to be ever morphing, but I'm currently mainly a fruitarian for all intents and purposes. So if anyone thinks a dish made with only pure fruit is too simple for thanksgiving, you'll have someone who'll think it's the best dish there! ;)

      Oh still no coconut though, and no avocado either, but most other fruit. :)

      My roommate is bringing a raw organic fruit salad, Nicole. :-) No coconut in it.

    I don't know yet what Dik and I will do.
    He just had Dental Surgery, so i have to wait to see how he feels.
    There doesn't seem to be a MAX number cut off. Is that correct?
