Year in Review: 2017 Vegan Potlucks & Gatherings (Photos)

It’s been a great year! We managed to have a vegan potluck every month, as well as pizza parties, a movie night, and a birthday dinner.

Best attended Vegan Potluck: October 2017 with Beth Morris – 67 attendees

Our 2018 plans is to continue having the monthly vegan potlucks, either at St. Andrews Episcopal or St Giles Presbyterian. We also want to have a January group dinner at Saffron Indian Restaurant (1178 Woodruff Rd #16, Greenville, SC 29607) The cost is $15 per person and it will be all vegan food. The owner will also talk about vegan food from India and explain all the dishes. We have a limit of 25 people for seating. We will need people to pay in advance so we can make arrangements with Saffron. More details coming in January 2018.

Vegan Potluck expenses: We take an offering at each vegan potluck to over servingware (plates, utensils, cups.) We donate a portion of the offering to the church where we meet. We use the remainder of the offering to pay for this website, GreenvilleVegan.com, which is $10 per month (or $120 yearly) and $15.95 for renewing the domain name. (Total $135.95 yearly)

Another thing that we are saving up for is to buy a projector for Powerpoint presentations, so that the speakers can use these at our meetings. We are also saving up for a new speaker and microphone.

Thank you to everyone who gave at our meetings!
