Come join in the fun on July 4 at Northwest VEG's annual 4th of July potluck picnic and celebrate the spirit of independence with delicious plant-based food. The picnic will be held from 1-5 p.m. at Raleigh Park located at 3500 SW 78th Avenue between Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway and Canyon Road. "Look for the Northwest VEG banner on the hill," says Wendy Gabbe Day, event coordinator.

Please bring a plant-based (no animal products, including honey) main dish, salad, or dessert (we'll supply the drinks); a card listing its ingredients; and plates, utensils and cups for your use; figure the amount to serve 6 generously. "Bring your croquet, badminton, bocce balls, or any other lawn or table games. We have reserved a number of picnic tables, but you may want to bring lawn chairs or blankets. Don't forget your tennis racquet if you play," says Wendy. A swimming pool at the park is available for a few dollars per person.

If it looks like rain, the picnic will relocate to West Hills UU Fellowship, 8470 SW Oleson Road. Check the events page for updates or call 503-746-8344.
