This month's theme is RAW Mexican food: salsa, guacamole, tacos, Spanish "rice," nacho cheez!
This month's speaker is Eileen Mackey, who will speak on the topic: A Mother’s Celebration of Overcoming the Adversities of Cancer and Tips to Conquer Any Disease.
Eileen Mackey, mother of 19(!) has had a full and busy life. Yet, in the midst of raising a large family, she had her own personal health challenges battling cancer. She studied and learned and applied many health remedies and regained her health over 8 years ago. Now she shares with us what she has continued to do to live a healthy lifestyle.
Socializing begins around 6:30pm - 7pm, and food at about 7pm - 7:30pm. Please be generous and respectful of others by bringing a vegan RAW food dish, or a salad (fruits, veggies, nuts, spices), or a fruit/veggie platter for six (or more) people.
NOTE: The food is usually very good here, and this event typically attracts an older, more of a conservative-type crowd (with the exception of many of our members in attendance, their friends, and a handful of others). There is a speaker each month, and the speaker may 1)be interesting/informative (depending on the listener); 2)he/she (sometimes) may be promoting a healthful or quasi-healthful product/service for purchase; and 3)on some occasions, the speaker promulgates religious propaganda during the course of a given talk. Over the past dozen years, some of our (former) members have complained about the content of these lectures, particularly (when applicable) the religious overtones of a few of them. (And the fact that our Meetup group did not warn them, in advance, of the religious nature of some of the talks... let me assure you that we have no control over the content of the talks. Nor do we sanction any of the products/services discussed that might be promoted in any of the talks.) If you're sensitive to such things, I suggest you make yourself very scarce at that time. There's always safe refuge somewhere on the property where people gather away from the action.
Other concerns (former) members have had in the past include: most potluck items are not labeled with a list of ingredients; not every single attendee carries his/her weight at potlucks (in terms of what they bring vs. how much they eat); sometimes a few small children might be running around (unsupervised); there may not always be a ton of food left if you're at the back of the line or arrive late; and the after-4pm-eating start time. If such things, at FREE events, are going to be overly bothersome to you, resulting in volcanic e-mails to Steve regarding any one of the above, this could be an event you might want to skip. - Steve
