Ventura County Vegans 5 Year Anniversary

  • Apr 21, 2012 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Did you know that our group was founded 5 years ago this April 7th 2007 by Rosa?
How appropriate since it was springtime(even if roses usually bloom late spring & early summer).

In honor of our founding member Rose, Bianca and other past organizers, our Meetup groups 5 years of being here on Meetup as a resource for the local Vegan community, I would like to propose that we.....Celebrate!

    I have yet another suggestion about future potlucks. How about each person, before eating, taking a few seconds describing the dish they brought? All the food was good but it would be nice to personally thank the chef who made it.

    My experience was fine although I think it would have been nice to post a notice on the front door explaining where the 2nd clubhouse was located. As it was, I had to ask several people before I found it.
    Good food and good desserts.

    Our celebration was a wonderful success. We all made new friends and continued to learn more about the friends we already know. The desserts were awesome and the food, as usual was magnificent. We truly missed Bianca and our original founder Rosa although they were both there in spirit. The great conversation included talked about a Ojai day trip, Vegan poker night and I mentioned my new idea for a future event I wish to call Vegan-Palooza http://www.VeganPaloozaSoCal.org/ Big hugs and LOve to everyone who could make it and to those who were there in harmonious spirit. Super Big Hugs to Cynthia Norton for all her hard work and providing a great location.

    Lots of great vegan food and something we don't always have a big chocolate vegan cake to help celebrate. Oh yeah and the people are fun and interesting too!

    Had a great time. Thank you to Marty and Cynthia for a great "birthday" party. And thanks to everyone who took the time to bring their contribution to the buffet. Everything was so tasty.

    Here’s a link to one of my favorite Vegan places on the internet. Zel makes all her food 100% Vegan and I’ve been blessed to try a few and all have been wonderful. http://www.vegparadise.com/recipeindex.html
    Another dear friend, Marilyn Peterson who’s the author of Vegan Bite by Bite has this blog that you will find a few great recipes. Marilyn prepared the Neat Loaf a few weeks ago and it was fantastic. http://veganbitebybite.blogspot.com/
    We look forward to meeting you both.

    Hi Lisa & Jeff. We are equally excited to have you join us. As for a dish, what is your favorite? There’s no pressure to make anything unique or gourmet. A simple fruit or vegetable plate or dish is fine.

    Hello all,
    This will be my husband Jeff and I's first vegan meet up. We are so excited, but don't know what to bring. We've been vegan for almost 2 years now and would love some suggestions as to what would be a good dish to bring. Thank you so much in advance!! We hope you are having the BEST day EVER!! :)

    Ok then! I will bring food as well. See you all there.

  • betsy s.

    As far as I know, we get together to eat and enjoy each other's company. What else is there besides food and friends?

    April 13, 2012

  • Bianca M.

    I'm bringing food and wine! :)

    April 13, 2012

  • elle-je' f.

    I am trying to find whether or not this is a potluck meal or just a gathering. Originally I think it was meant to be a potluck. sorry If I am missing the information somehow.

  • elle-je' f.

    the 21st looks good for me too.

    March 31, 2012

  • elle-je' f.

    Oh sh__! I am so sorry......I did not look at the date! I am going to be out of town the 7th and 8th. Can we celebrate this event later after the 'Easter-thing"? We may get a better response, etc.

    It sounds like it may be a small get together. I'm OK with keeping it simple and going somewhere. Where, is the question? Want to call me so we can talk about it[masked]

  • elle-je' f.

    potlucks are less expensive, but more work and invloves someone to host(ess)... just to muddy the waters! ;0)

    Sounds good to me :-)

    I pick somewhere in Ventura.... of coarse :0) just let me know.

    Where would you suggest that we celebrate? Cynthia Norton offered her HOA club house for our next gathering and a potluck with a celebration theme could be fun. I'm also open to ging out. BTW I don't ever drink and drive so I would be very happy to volunteer to be a designed driver for those who live local to where we choose.

    March 30, 2012

  • elle-je' f.

    yes! Lets!
