Update - Vegetarian Taste Fest - February 17, 2008
By: Nancy Allen, Event Coordinator
Well another tasting event has been successfully carried out by members of the Sarasota 7th Day Adventist Church. The day was warm and breezy and the attendance up from previous years. One-hundred and seventy-eight adults and four children came and were nourished and blessed by their participation. The Sarasota Herald Tribune featured an article praising the event in their February 20 edition. From your coordinator's point of view, it was one of the best, if not the best since the 1st one held in 1999. The crowd was excited and really into the tasting, the cooks friendly and helpful as ever, the tasting options were healthy and balanced, and the comments from attendees glowing. Most felt we should hold it twice a year. Now that caused me to take pause! The cookbooks were a real success this year as well. More than half of those printed were sold. Copies are still available for $3.00. Those interested should contact the church office.
I want to thank all the 74+ volunteers who made this event the succes it was. It surely could not have been done without you. You are all to be commended for your willingness to become involved.
