    The food was very nice and tasty. It was cool to meet some other local vegans/vegetarians. I don't think I encountered a single unfriendly person. :)

    Hi All, just want to make sure that you all have purchased your tickets via check, paypal on the VSC site, or made arrangements with Peter or me. If not, your RSVP hasn't been counted. It's difficult to accommodate so many with last minute signups or cancellations. Thank you so much for your cooperation with this. Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!

    November 21, 2012

  • Jason W.

    We just changed our RSVP to no. There were going to be four of us so hopefully this means some others can attend instead.

    • Ann V S.

      Thank you, Jason. Good of you to let us know. I'm sorry you can't make it. I hope you have a good holiday and I hope you will join us for a gathering very soon! Take care!

      I think you'll be OK; the deadline was extended to 10pm on November 19. But there is a number (from above) that you can call to confirm:[masked]

      November 20, 2012

    • Ann V S.

      Thank you for responding, James! Yes James is correct, Sergey! I'll add you to the RSVPs on here. Thank you for attending. See you there!!

  • Lara

    my apologies if this is an obviously dumb question but is the the dinner vegetarian or vegan?

    1 · November 18, 2012

    • Ann V S.

      Hi Lara, not a dumb question at all. The event is vegan. Sorry it isn't clear in the notice. Thank you!

      November 18, 2012

    • Carol G.

      Lara, come and be blessed. Even if not vegan you will LOVE the food and will be fooled it's not the "traditional sad" diet many embrace. No judgment but come and enjoy!

  • Ann V S.

    UPDATE ON THE DEADLINE - Sorry for another email, but we have pushed the deadline back to Monday 19 November at 10 PM, since some folks only have computers at work. Thanks!

    November 18, 2012

  • Ann V S.

    Hi Y'all! We are so happy that you will be attending our annual community thanksgiving celebration of life!! The deadline for reservations and ticket purchases is tonight, 18 November at 10 PM.

  • Diane S.

    Are we to bring a place setting, plates etc.?

    November 16, 2012

    • Ann V S.

      Hi Diane, I'm so glad you can attend! Please do bring your own place setting, if you like. We will have compostable disposables available and stainless flat ware, for those who don't bring their own. Thank you!

    I would love to go but am going on a camping trip with my son and a group. Never been camping in the winter so it should be interesting. Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    • Ann V S.

      We'll miss you, Esther! Have a great time camping! Don't forget your long johns!! ;o)

    I signed up via the VSC site directly (newbie here--hello!), and I just wanted to make sure that I don't have to do anything else--there was a note on the PayPal screen to call a 303 number but I didn't write it down.

    1 · November 11, 2012

    • Ann V S.

      Hi James, if you did the paypal thing on the VSC site, then yes, you are all set! Thank you!!
