Wilmington Vegan - Part 2

Trick or treat, smelly feet, we had a blast on Vegan Street!

To Review…

The 26th of October many vegans did gather, to bring Halloween to children who would rather
have candy without milk, eggs, honey or gelatin,
and that’s just what happened this year in Wilmington!

There were witches, cats, cowboys with brimmed hats,
Pokémon and unicorns, and creatures from the sea,
there was even a mad-beats, rapping, vegan bumblebee!

Fates were discovered by the bold, as they had their fortunes told
Faces were painted in various fashion by an artist with compassion
A spooky story, trick or treatin,’ the cutest sweets, laid out for eatin’!

It was a thrilling event, much fun was surely had
Although its over now, we won’t let that make us sad.
Thanks to all who came out and shared
those funds will go to be prepared, until the next All Hallows Eve
when we return to trick or to treat, on the nightmare we call Vegan Street!

**Thank you to ALL who came out and participated!  A big thanks to UpBeet Market and all of the other sponsors! Lastly, thank you to all our volunteers, including the door painters, story teller, fortune teller, face painter, chili makers and dessert bakers!**

It has been my pleasure to have been the leader of Wilmington Vegan for the past several years. I could never have imagined it would grow this big or be such a significant force for good. We’ve had numerous wonderful social events including monthly potlucks, happy hours, and “Carrot Mobs.” We’ve set up our outreach tables at so many community events such as the Wilmington Earth Day Festival and Fire in the Pines. We have repeatedly published the Wilmington Vegan Restaurant and Community Guide, making it easier for both locals and tourists to find vegan eats in Wilmington (as well as encouraging dialog between restaurants and the community). And of course, the Facebook group and the Wilmington Vegan website have been the hubs that made it effortless for people to find their community.

But things have changed in my life and it’s time for me to hand over my leadership to someone new. I am absolutely thrilled to announce to you that the new leader of Wilmington Vegan is Reva Kelly. For those of you who don’t know her, you will find that she is intelligent, kind, and passionate about veganism. She is a true fighter for animal liberation. And (drum roll please) she will be bringing us the first Wilmington Vegan Food Bus!!

Reva’s new role is Executive Director of Wilmington Vegan (and she will be pursuing our non-profit status to make this official). Autumn Butler is coming on as Assistant Executive Director. Board members will be announced at a later date.

I am incredibly happy about these changes and I can already see that Wilmington Vegan is moving up to the next level. Get ready because a lot of amazing changes are about to happen in your community!! Now you must come celebrate this major event with us on Saturday, March 3rd, 4pm, at Tidal Creek. Enjoy an all-vegan hot bar! Talk about upcoming projects or just come to socialize and have fun!
