Vegetarian Picnic!

  • Jun 1, 2008 · 12:00 PM
  • Platte River State Park

Its time for the NVS annual picnic! Platte River State Park is beautiful this time of year! Its also a perfect location being in between Omaha and Lincoln, giving those Lincoln people a break. I reserved the parks pavilion so there is no way of getting rained out! There is a $4 per car daily park fee, so I suggest car pooling. See ya there! *Please remember to provide a card with the name of your dish, whether its vegan or vegetarian, and ingredients of your dish for those who may be allergen sensitive.

    As always a wonderful time.

    I think as time continues we will continue to become more organized and stable in who we are as a group. Our network of people will grow and we will be able to utilize a wide variety of talents.

    I would really sometime like to do, is after a picnic we go and do a small group trash pickup, maybe around a city block or two. We end up hanging out afterwards anyway, and talking about saving the earth......we should start putting somethings into practice as a group.

    An excellent meetup! The park was beautiful, I met a lot of cool veg*ans, and had a blast. Can't wait for the next one!

    Despite the hot weather, I did enjoy this picnic, especially the bit about seeing the people with a fear of heights going up onto the top of the observation tower. ;) Plus the kids are awesome too!

    The people with allergies I know for sure are my kids with milk/peanut/tree nuts, and my niece who is allergic to strawberries. If people could try to avoid using those ingredients that would be so helpful. We have some members with celiacs, but I'm not sure if they're coming. Thanks!

    We'll be bringing vegan quinoa "waldorf" salad. (Organic quinoa, organic vegan mayo, organic dried cranberries, organic walnuts and organic apples.) If anyone has nut allergies, let me know and I can leave them out.

    If anyone still needs a ride to this, feel free to contact me asap. It looks like I'll have room for one or two more people. (As long as you can chip in a couple dollars for gas, that is. ;) )

    Yeah, is there carpooling already set up? If so, Alex and I would like to join that. :)

    I guess I'll have to drive. I live close to dundee and the first unitarian church in omaha, so if anyone needs a ride, lives roughly on the way and wants to chip in, let me know.
