Annual Turkey-Free Thanksgiving Celebration


Our annual Turkey-free Thanksgiving Celebration is just around the corner. It's been a really great year, and we have lots to be Thankful for. The TFT is a potluck picnic. The Main dish Tofurky Roasts have been donated by Tofurky, and will be cooked by club members, so please bring a complimentary dish.

 Just like the potluck we ask that you make sure your dish is free of all animal products, including gelatin, honey, and marshmallows (unless they are vegan).   Also, in keeping with our efforts to protect the environment, please bring your own dishes and utensils to keep the waste generated to a minimum.

Many attendees have asked for a list to help them plan, so please join the conversation here, and add you're dish to the list so others can get an idea of what's already coming.

 We encourage everyone to mingle at these events. It's Thanksgiving so it's the perfect time to make new friends. It's also the perfect opportunity to introduce your friends and family to plant based living. Bring them along and let them see how delicious a holiday meal can be with out the big "stuffed" bird. Invite your friends and neighbors... Suntree Rotary park is a beautiful park nestled in the trees overlooking the Indian River with a very nice pavillion and lovely breezes. Hope to see you all there.

This event has become so well attended( last year we had 85 diners). 

 If you'd like to help with set-up and clean-up, we'd love to have you. We'll be arriving around 11:00 to get the floors swept, and the tables cleaned and clothed. 

Remember, this is a social event, and opportunity for us to gather and socialize, meet new people and catch up with old friends. We'd like food to arrive between 12:30 and 1:00, we will begin eating around 1:15. 

Thanks for all you do to keep Healthy Planet of Brevard lively and vibrant. In good health, Kim

    Just got to Cocoa Beach and unpacking. May have to pay, unless there is something you need me to purchase. Let me know. What time is it again?

      welcome back Rose. See you there :)

      Thanks, Kim, good to see the old gang. Wonderful event. Let me know, if I can help with recruitment or anything. See you next event.

  • Amanda

    I'm so confused... I see 2 different addresses now here and on fb... is this closer to Melbourne or closer to Cocoa?

    November 20

    • Rose T.

      So sorry for confusion. Please read my reply to Elizabeth above. Hope to see you next time at the potluck.

      November 21

    I'll be bringing a Blackberry Crisp (I know, not really traditional Thanksgiving!). I have to take my son to the airport in the morning so have to make something I can do the day before. Looking forward to meeting everyone!

    • Elizabeth S.

      Sorry I missed this event! I spent 2 hours looking for the park. Okay, I'm old but really, was there even a sign for the park? I didn't see one and 5 different people tried to help me but no luck. Maybe see you all next time?

      November 20

    • Rose T.

      Wow, so sorry for that Elizabeth. There is a small sign, but without directions, it would be easy to miss. I will take responsibility to give very explicit directions next time. I travel a lot and I know how the lack of signs can really get you lost. So sorry you missed it. See you at the next potluck, I hope.
