Potluck picnic at Belmont Lake State Park

  • This location is shown only to members

The weather is going to be sunny in the upper 60s, a beautiful day. Let's meetup for a picnic. You can bring your favorite homemade or store bought vegan dish to the park to share. I will provide the stuff to bbq and will be making portabello, brown rice wraps with salsa. After lunch, we can work off all those calories by taking a walk, or not, around the lake. Feel free to bring along your (leashed) dog, guitar, frisbee, chair/blanket, trail bike, whatever makes you happy. All dishes are welcome but if need help with some suggestions, here are a few: kale/sweet potato/veggie chips, paper plates/utensils,napkins (feel free to bring your own reusable), thermos of lemonade or other beverage, sandwiches, salads, or dessert. I'm also happy to share the grill with anyone.

If anyone can step up and provide their cell number to the group, for anyone that gets lost or can't find us, that will be great. My cell is a work phone.

Hope to see you there!

    Ruth, you are wonderful for organizing this. I'm sorry to have missed it, but it sounds like there's demand for more such gatherings in the future. I'm looking forward to attending! Thank you again for being such an excellent host. <3

    To all - loved your company, so nice to see people of all ages sharing in delicious vegan food, and of course the adorable dogs. I was overwhelmed with the array of home cooked dishes. I will definitely do this again.

    This deserves 6 stars!!! I was so grateful to be among such very nice, thoughtful, environmentally caring, people. And the fact that there were also such phenomenal cooks and bakers made it even more memorable. Beakyn and I loved it and as Paula said the sunshine was evident. Thank you so much Ruth for organizing this (and navigating me into the proper location).

    We made our own sunshine. Had a great time with all you nice people :) Loved the 3 precious doggies full of love and light -- Beacon/Beakyn (wink), and the 2 pugs (didn't get their names). FYI -- my cake came out bland because I forgot to put the chocolate chips in! Doh!

    Ok on News 12 T&W forecast is cloudy but no rain, except for maybe a few isolated showers. Directions are on top but here is my cell # if anyone needs to find us[masked]-9613. Drive all the way into the public parking to the end. Lake will be on the right. Walk towards the lake and look for us on the left near the water. I will have a white sweatshirt on.

    If I can find the ingredients to my vegan chocolate chip cookies tonight at King Cullen, I'll make them. If not, I'll be good and make a fruit salad.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
