When: Saturday, June 2, 2007 at 2:00 PM
Where: Mission Wild Oats
5101 Johnson Dr
Mission, KS 66205
The KC Raw Food Meetup on June 2, will be at the Mission Wild Oats store. We may soon outgrow this location but for now, with a few improvements, we should be good. I will bring a folding banquet table that will be used for our food buffet table. I will also provide the paper plates, name tags, etc.
The PA system worked out very well and will be brought to future potlucks and events. Anyone that has an announcement or would like to share helpful information, please see Maureen upon arrival. Announcements will be kept short so that our focus remains on the social gathering and information sharing.
Short demonstrations are welcome. If you would like to share a demo on sprouting, juicing or anything related to the raw lifestyle, please email Maureen: [address removed].
Remember, demos will be kept to 15 minutes per person, one per potluck.
Also, if there is anything that you would like to see demonstrated, email Maureen and we will find someone that has the knowledge and is willing to share.
We need your suggestions to help to make our potlucks even better! Email them to [address removed].
Thanks to all that remembered their dollar donation to help to keep our website up and running. We collected $12 at our May potluck. The meetup.com website cost is $144 per year, collected in two payments ($72) throughout the year.
I believe the main success for the level of enthusiasm and growth is directly related to the ability for communication within our community via meetup.com. If everyone donated one dollar for every potluck they attended, you will be helping me (Maureen) to cover the cost of not only keeping our website active, but also any and all supplies that are currently donated for our usage. Fees can also be paid through paypal in larger increments.
Bring your sociability, good cheer and friendliness and a raw vegan dish to serve 6 or more. A simple offering can be a vegetable salad or sliced fresh organic fruit, or a platter of sliced organic veggies.
Or, find creative and scrumptious ideas by doing a quick google search for "raw food recipes." For more information and guidelines, check out our message board and look for, "What to bring to a potluck."
Thanks for making our potlucks an exciting adventure into raw living!
