    Recap: About 40 people attended and there was a fantastic spread of vegan food. We were able to cover our event costs by asking for donations from anyone who didn't bring a potluck dish to share and through the bake sale. We were even able to donate the surplus $107 to Farm Sanctuary. We asked people if they were vegetarian, vegan, or neither when they checked in at the event. Out of 40 attendees, 13 were not vegan. Next year we will try to reachout more to the public and get more nonvegans to attend. Overall it was a great event and we hope everyone had a good time.

      We raised $107 for Farm Sanctuary so that "adopts" 4 turkeys :)

    • Chelsea C.

      Like I said, there is a picnic table pretty close by, but I'm sure you can bring a chair outside and sit there as well.

  • Monica T.

    I don't think I'll be able to make it by 2:30 because of naptime. I hope 3:00 is ok!

      3 should be fine

      October 23, 2012

  • Elaine

    FYI - If you plan to bring a vegan potluck dish please ensure that it serves at least 4 people and is 100% vegan. That means no meat (including birds, fishes, and other sea creatures), no dairy, no eggs, no honey. Please bring the recipe to share as well as any utensils needed to serve the dish or keep it warm. We will have some outlets availble for crockpots, rice cookers, and other warmers. Thanks :)
