Solstice Potluck 2010

Come celebrate Winter Solstice with your fellow islanders at this season's Community Vegan Potluck scheduled for Saturday (NOT Sunday!), December 18th at 6:30 pm in the Denman Back Hall. As always, food lovers of every persuasion are invited to join in on our delicious, turkey-free holiday smorgasbord. After dinner we gather round the blazing Yule-fire to celebrate both the nurturing darkness of winter’s respite and the promise of returning light with carols appropriate to the solstice season!

At last year’s UN sponsored Celebration of Faiths and the Environment in the UK, guests representing nine different religious/spiritual traditions gathered to launch long-term initiatives aimed at influencing the attitudes and behaviors of their communities for generations to come. Accomodating the interests of such a wide range of individuals from different cultural backgrounds resulted in the first ever vegan banquet at Windsor Castle…a dining experience that could be equally shared and enjoyed by all!

Any 100% plant-based dinner entrĂ©e, salad, dessert, or single item dish (excluding dairy, eggs, honey and gelatin, please) is a suitable contribution to our local feast. Denman's vegan potlucks are a great place to pick up new recipe ideas, but nothing fancy is required unless you are so inspired! Please bring along your ingredient list, and thankyou also in advance for helping keep these inclusive community gatherings accessible for folks with chemical sensitivities by attending ‘scent-free’. Admission is by donation (suggested $3 towards expenses). For further information,  call 1209. Peace to one and all!
