Compassion & Celebration - Time to Get Together

K-Town Vegans has successfully completed its 5th Year - emerging as a vibrant group banding together vegetarians and vegans  in the Knoxville area.  We will be celebrating this event together with any special events - birthdays, anniversaries etc among our members.  This is a Potluck event. Please join the celebration !!!!!

Please bring a vegan dish to share (8 servings or more) and your own place setting. Drinks will be provided. Suggested donation: $5.  Please invite friends and family! Members are also invited to order K-Town Vegans t-shirts from Cafe Press and wear them to the event to show off their vegan pride (a small number of shirts will be available for sale). 

There will be a slideshow with highlights of our first five years and an opportunity for folks to give brief testimonials. We will also be showing some fun short vegan-related videos.

    What a fine evening! Thanks to Viren for making the arrangements for this nice space. It was great to greet some newcomers. Many thanks to all who spoke from their hearts. I appreciate the cooks, the quality and variety of food at our potluck is always very high!

    Last night was a celebration of our growth from 1 to 178 members in five years. We especially welcome the many new members who came last night. Our potluck buffet included tasty contrasts of colorful raw salads, BBQ dishes, ethnic foods, comfort foods, and gourmet meals made with exotic spices. Vegan recipes have "come of age" so vegan meals now appeal to nearly anyone with taste buds!! A recent explosion in vegan websites, blogs, online recipes, recipe books make it easy to prepare simple vegan meals. Athletes such as marathoners, football and basketball players, movie stars, physicians, nurses, college students, even our past "fast food" president and his vice president, and anyone concerned with their health, environment or animal well being recognize the benefits to their health and environment. These are many reasons to be grateful and to celebrate compassion for each other and for animals.

    Sorry I won't be able to attend. Halloween week each night I have to do curfew checks on sex offenders to make sure they aren't participating in Halloween activities

    Now would be a good time to order a KTown Vegans tshirts from our online shop on Cafe Press. It would be great to see a bunch of these in circulation at this party! You need to allow about 7 to 10 days for delivery. I will also have a small number of shirts on hand at the party for sale.

    • Viren L.

      You can also put K Town Vegans in Search Bar in the Cafe Press website

      October 2, 2014

    • Kevin M.

      If you do the search, you will only see one product. If you use the link, you can see all the products (T-shirts, mugs, bumper stickers...) that I have set up.

  • Jade L.

    Sorry we can't make it. Karen just reminded me of a prior commitment.

    October 1, 2014

  • Kevin M.

    I know its a little harder to prepare for a potluck on a weeknight. You can put together a dish the night before, or even the weekend before and freeze it till the day.

    • Viren L.

      It is OK. But do make it ...

      August 24, 2014

  • Viren L.

    Each attendee gets to say a few words as to what event, milestone, person in their life, that brings smile to their faces !!

    August 24, 2014

  • Viren L.

    Please send in your special celebration in your life - birthdays, anniversaries, milestones etc to me - for we will make an announcement for each one of you, at the event. Thank You
