November Vegan Potluck 11/12/16 @ St. Andrews Episcopal Church
We had a good turnout with 20 attendees. Speaker was Paul Cohen, who summarized main points of “Eat More, Weigh Less” from Dr. Dean Ornish’s Program for Losing Weight Safely. Paul offered DVD for $5 each. Testimonials from Judy Ellen Jensen and Kayla Joyce were made based on personal vegan positive experiences. Mellow Mushroom donated two XL veggie lovers pizzas. Frank- Co-Organizer, gave out door prizes: A bag of vegan dog treats, a ceramic bowl from Cook’s Station and a bar of soap from a local West Main St. company. Frank is shown in first photo (group) on right side end, wearing a plaid shirt.
Participant & effervescent Irina, spoke about going/went vegan to help her healthy daughter Joyce, who was born with many food allergies and intolerances. Nothing else but vegan seemed to help. Irina proclaimed two months prior: “Vegan changed my life”. Since going vegan, young Joyce thrives, needs no medication & enjoys robust energy. She is a happy, well-adjusted little girl. (Pictured in first photo being held up & last photo with Mom Irina.) Nicky – Organizer is shown in first photo center (group) next to Irina. Her relentless coordination efforts to make each event better & memorable demonstrate incomparable results.
