Dear Members and Friends of the Tampa Bay Vegetarians, Our 2023 picnic will take place on Saturday, April 29, in Shelter # 6 at Lake Seminole Park, which is located at 10015 Park Boulevard in Seminole. Our shelter is in a lovely spot next to the water. People can start arriving around 11:30 A.M., and we will begin lunch around noon. JOIN US FOR THE PICNIC! The TBV will furnish paper plates, cups, cutlery, napkins, ice and water. If you want something other than water to drink, please bring your own. Each participant is asked to bring food to serve at least 8 people. We need salads, main dishes, and desserts. Please bring a serving spoon for your dish. When you sign up, we ask that you let us know what you will bring because we do not want everybody to bring the same thing! If there is not a good balance, we will ask some of you to change your dish. We are asking everyone to bring a label or a piece of paper to put on or in front of your dish, indicating whether it is vegetarian or vegan. If you can also list the ingredients, that would be great! Non-members, as always, will pay a non-member fee of $2.00 at the picnic. If you prefer, become a member at the pro-rated charge of only $9.00 for an individual or $11.25 for a household. NO CHARGE FOR MEMBERS This is the one time of the year when children are welcome to attend, and there is no charge for them! Dogs are also welcome but must be on a leash. MAKE A RESERVATION by calling Debby at 727-432-3327 or Steve at 727-224-8731. WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU AT THE PICNIC!
