2018 Volunteer Meeting for Rancho Park Potluck on Thanksgiving
Link to the Facebook event page for this Volunteer Meeting: *PURPOSE OF THE MEETING: LA'S longest running single day vegan tradition Needs Your Assistance! It's almost time for the annual Thanksgiving Day Vegan Potluck Picnic! In case you are not familiar with this event, it has occurred every year at the same location for about 25 years and is Los Angeles' largest vegan potluck event of the year. Hundreds of people attend annually. This event is created by the community for the community so we need your help. Please join us to plan and coordinate the details as a community in order for the event to run efficiently and best serve our community. We need your ideas, love, energy, and contributions. *INTENTION The intention of the meeting is to report to the community what we have been doing, provide logistical information, plans, and contingencies for the event, and clarify the volunteer positions that are available and the support that is needed prior to and the day of the event. We hope to become clear on who will be volunteering and what their roles will be. If time allows, we will discuss new ideas and possible changes we might make to improve the event. We are committed to completing this meeting within 2 hours. *VOLUNTEER COORDINATION AND EVENT PLANNING Everyone is welcome to attend the planning meeting . While coming to the meeting may provide you with information that you may find valuable and a chance to connect with other volunteers, YOUR ATTENDANCE IS NOT REQUIRED TO VOLUNTEER. *PLEASE INVITE all your friends who you think might be interested in helping plan or volunteer for this event.

This planning event is NOT a potluck, so a dish is not required. If you intend to eat, please bring your own plate/ bowl and utensils. It is also recommended to bring sun protection, a blanket to sit on and a cup for water. MEETING LOCATION: Weather permitting, we will meet at the picnic area where we meet for the Thanksgiving day gathering every year. In the event of inclement weather, an alternative location will be posted in the Facebook event description (see link above). If the picnic space is occupied, we will meet at the picnic area and move to an unoccupied area. --> Enter Park at the north entrance on Motor Avenue (the first entrance south of Pico Blvd). When you enter the park, there is a parking area on the left. Drive passed this parking area and follow the road to the next parking area which is a few hundred feet down. Walk to the picnic tables across the grass and behind the baseball field. (There is another picnic area at the far end and close to the parking lot, this is not our picnic area.)
