hi Brian,

I have been talking with Anne and a few other members about having a vegan bake sale with the Get BAKED event that is happening this Sunday.
Details event on facebook:

I have reserved a table so we will be a vendor at this event.  I will need some help organizing this, so if you could pass this message along to our membership that would be really helpful.

what I will need help with (please e-mail Genny at with what you can help with):

-1 person to help me with table set up around 11:30 ish  and to hold down table/fort answer any questions ppl have and take cash for our treats) till around 3ish.

-1 person to help me around 3ish until end of event (5pm) with holding down fort and clean-up. (if this person has a car that would be great as I’m not sure how many containers we will have from treats and supplies)

-we will need at least six people to be able to make some vegan baked goods and donate them to our table, they would need to drop off items around 11:30am this Sunday.
If you can take part in this, fill out Google spreadsheet so we can contact you and make sure 3 ppl don’t show up with brownies: Please create a ingredient listings of your items for the sake of all those with allergies/sensitivities and bring it when you drop off item(s).

-someone to bring some literature about our group and a sign up sheet to get on our newsletter.

-spread the word everyone!  Tell your friends/family about it, blog about it and put it up on facebook or whatever social network you use.

Active Vegans Group


Check it out as a way to get involved with other Vegans to meet up and join in various activities (outside the restaurant)!

Here is what they say:

“hello! we’re a Meetup group for vegans in the Vancouver area things!

it’s not a ‘fitness club’, it’s not a ‘team’, it’s not a ‘club’. it’s just a non-restauranty setting to hang out with vegans, and share a(nother) common interest.

things will perhaps be relatively spontaneous, but I suppose we’ll organise some planned events from time to time.

come along! you don’t *have* to be vegan, but be respectful and enjoy yourself 🙂
