Monthly Potluck

  • Feb 23, 2014 · 3:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hi Veggie Family

Yay we have a location for our next potluck, Ashwood Gardens Apts Clubhouse! We have access to a full kitchen plus pool and ping-pong tables in the billiards room! The complex guidelines request that we Park on Ashwood Ave. Looking forward to munching and mingling with all of you.

Note for folks new to the vegan lifestyle, vegan means no animal products including dairy (milk, cheese, yogurt, casien, whey) no eggs, no honey and of course no meat.

Vegetarians and those interested in the vegan lifestyle are more than welcome, we just ask that the food being shared is vegan. Also be mindful of using peanuts in your potluck dishes as one of our members is extremely allergic.

Also if you would like to make this event even more eco-friendly you can bring your own place setting to the potluck (plate, cup, utensils and cloth napkin if available) This helps cut down on landfill waste rather than using disposables. One of the biggest reasons I became vegan was for the planet! And of course for my health and the animals too :) We will have some disposables as back-up, but it would be great if we could all pitch in and do this. There will be a kitchen available to wash our dishes.

Thank you!

-Bianca

Feel free to text me as well with questions. We do have a pool but they only allow 2 people at a time. Look forward to meeting u all soon ;)

      I didn't know about that, but now I just signed up. It looks great! I look forward to catching another potluck here in the future.

    Hi Bianca. Any suggestions for our dues? I know you got several sponsors so I think it would be a good idea to let our groups know that perhaps a $5.00/meetup would be enough to cover expenses. Any thoughts?

      I think if everyone pitches in $1-5 dollars we are good

      For now we just have RedBrick as our sponsor

    I received an idea from a member that if anyone has a clubhouse we can use or rent in their apartment complex that could work great for our next gathering. Also wondering if anyone would be open to a Sunday Meet-up that same weekend as a space might be available but only on Sun not Sat., would that change your ability to attend?

    Thank you Bianca about the "bring your own place setting". We had monthly potlucks on our farm in Mich. and that is where it all started many years ago.

    Hi everyone, I was inspired by Betsy to bring my own place setting to our potluck (plate, cup, utensils and cloth napkin if available) This is such an eco-friendly idea and helps cut down on landfill waste rather than using disposables. One of the biggest reasons I became vegan was for the planet! And of course for my health and the animals too :) We will have some disposables as back-up, but it would be great if we could all pitch in and do this.

    I was raised on fast food, High blood pressure is genetic in my family - I'm going to see my ND today - she said I can take a natural med to lower my blood pressure. I'm excited about meeting people in the group and getting support on the "transition" from dairy, poultry and fish to "Vegan!"
