Thanksgiving 2017 Preview
I am sending compassion and wishing resilience to all those
affected by the fires north of Marin. Among the many things for
which I am grateful are firefighters, kind neighbors and
volunteers, and a caring community that continues to raise funds
for those in need.
Thanksgiving is Thursday, November 23. Last year, by
the time I wrote about options for Thanksgiving, many were fully
booked. To get a jump on the holiday this year, I am sending
word of these vegan Thanksgiving celebrations now. Reserve
right away if the event you like calls for reservations.
Animal Place will be hosting their 8th annual Thank the
Turkeys celebration on Saturday, November 18 from 11 AM
to 5 PM at their sanctuary in Grass Valley. Meet with the
sheep, goats, rabbits, pigs and cows. Then enjoy feeding the
turkeys and chickens from your own box of turkey and chicken
treats. A full, vegan, organic Thanksgiving dinner will be
prepared and served off site. Guest speaker is Jessica Miller.
The cost of the event is $75 for adults, $45 for children.
