Our Easter Event – a Blessing Indeed

Our Easter event on March 26 was a full success! All guests enjoyed the Christian blessing of the animals performed by our neighbor and minister Tony Wilkinson. Immediately after the ceremony, our delicious vegan potluck buffet was opened up in the barn. As a special treat Fred Keams, from the Navajo, played his various native American flutes. The soothing music had even the many attending children quietly listening. Our vegan buffet received multiple rave reviews as well as recipe requests from meat eaters who were initially skeptical about the idea of attending a plant-based only event. We are thrilled about this. It shows that we can all come together no matter our backgrounds and previous habits, so long as we are open minded and willing to just enjoy each others company. As a special treat for the kids, our dear friend Diana Hill, prepared an Easter Egg hunt and some lovely gifts for all attending children.

The weather could not have been more perfect. The previous three days had been windy and cool but the winds died down and the sun came out for us to add to our many blessings that day.

Enjoy a few impressions from the event:

The vegan chilly. The pot did not stay that full for long. It was wiped out in no time.
