Calendar of Events

June 7, at 6:30 p.m., Dinner at Gabriel's Café, 50 John Street, Kingston. The Café is providing a variety of vegan dishes selected specifically for our event. For starters there is a Mediterranean plate appetizer and chick pea soup. The main course is a choice of the Latin Combo or a Jamaican-style dish. Each made with choice of tofu, tempeh or seitan. Some MHVS members are engaged in a dessert contest (entrants please bring recipe). Guests get to eat the winning entry and all the other worthy contenders. Coffee and tea included or B.Y.O. wine. Cost is $29 per person. Reserve early as seating is limited.

June 14, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary presents their June Jamboree. There will be great vegan food, live music and farm tours. Admission is $10. MHVS doesn't have an official job at this event, but members are encouraged to support Woodstock F.A.S. by attending or volunteering. Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary is on Van Wagner Road, off Route 212, west of Woodstock in the hamlet of Willow. Visit www.woodstockfas.org for details.

On June 28, the Veg Society steps out to support Catskill Animal Sanctuary in its annual Shindig event. MHVS provides the food concession for the Sanctuary's biggest fundraising event. Volunteers are needed for any of three activities: Food service/sales at the event; food preparation in advance of the event (we make large batches of pasta salad, hummus wraps, etc.), and; dessert preparation (make your favorite vegan desert and package it in individual servings to sell). The event runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Sanctuary, 316 Old Stage Road, Saugerties. Food service volunteers are asked to commit to a two-hour shift. Set-up begins by 10 a.m. Whether you volunteer or not, please consider attending the Shindig. It's a great chance to meet the animals and learn about the critical work done by CAS.

July 20, Dog Days of Summer Picnic at North/South Lake Park in Haines Falls. The Veg Society provides veg hotdogs, watermelon, and soft drinks. Bring a summery vegan dish to share. The park charges a $7 per-car day use fee (car pooling recommended). North/South Lake features swimming, boat rentals, fabulous views and hiking trails. We'll also play frisbee and volleyball (badly). Companion animals welcome (except on the beach).

August 23, Save the date for a Veg-B-Q at Robine Henderson & Nate Williams' spread up in the wee hamlet of New Kingston. Details later via email.

September 20, Colonie Café, Woodstock. Mark your calendars for a Bizarro evening of laughs with funny guy Dan Pirraro. Dan is not only the personality behind the pen that draws Bizarro, he is also a heck of a stand-up comic. Oh, and he's a vegan. And he's a friend of Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary. So when MHVS sponsors the gig in Woodstock, we'll pass the proceeds on to our friends at the sanctuary. More details will follow.
