2nd Annual Vegan Thanksgiving Feast A Huge Success

On Wednesday, November 17th at 8:30pm, over a dozen students took command of 2 kitchens and 1 dorm room micro-fridge unit to create an immaculate, vegan feast from scratch, featuring everything from roasted cactus to mashed potatoes to Tofurky. Members of the university's Student Environmental Action Coalition (SEAC) showed up too. Some students are members of both VegSoc and SEAC. It was a fabulous night made complete by game after game of Bananagrams and a little bit of salsa dancing. The last of us didn't leave until 2AM.

Next Meeting

This is a reminder. Our next meeting will be on Tuesday September 29 @ 11am @ Earth Fare. Remember to bring a few dollars to get a snack, or more money if you want a full lunch. We have much to discuss!

Tuesday September 29 @ 11am

PS. I need for all vegan members and nonmembers (even if you are not a Winthrop student) to contact me ASAP regarding an opportunity to participate in a small study. All that would be involved is a mouth swab for DNA and perhaps a form. A minimum of 24 participants will be necessary.

Membership Rules

We do not charge membership dues if we believe that society is experiencing economic distress. Obviously, we do not currently charge for membership!

All you must do in order to become a member is:

A) Consider yourself vegetarian by your own standards OR intend to become a vegetarian
B) Be on our e-mailing list. To get on the mailing list contact

If you do not fulfill requirement A for any reason, you are welcome to call yourself an "associate" or an "associate member". Associate members may not participate (vote, run) in elections but are welcome to participate in everything else.

Be aware that any potluck events will require that contributions be vegan. Whenever we serve food, we adhere to the strictest standards so that everybody can eat regardless of their degree of vegetarianism. Don't be afraid to ask if you are unsure of whether what you want to bring is actually vegan. If you do bring something that you are unsure about, please notify one of the officers so that all vegans in attendance will be informed so that they can choose whether or not to take a chance.

Thank You,

Sarah Ruth Hoffman

First Fall 2009 Meeting

Ten people showed up for our first meeting of the semester. We had a casual lunch at Earth Fare and discussed our plans! There are now 52 people on our mailing list. There are 47 members, 2 faculty/advisors, and 3 officers. If just 1% of Winthrop students are vegetarian then that means that there should be about 60 of us! Every week a few more come out of the woodwork. We are a diverse group consisting of vegans, lacto-ovo-vegetarians, ovo-vegetarians, lacto-vegetarians, and semi-vegetarians. There is even more diversity in our reasoning. Our discussions will be interesting, for sure. I expect that we will learn very much from one another in the coming year. Our next meeting will be Tuesday September 29 @ 11am @ Earth Fare.
