“It’s the little things that make all the difference.”
We have 3 little things in particular that are making this potluck Thrive!!!
It’s that time a year when gratitude is in the air, so we at Door County Thrive wanted to focus this potluck on thanking ALL of you for helping our community THRIVE!
Because of this we will be giving away $200+ in gift cards from local + sustainable restaurants, cafes, grocery stores, and a few other green businesses! Be sure not to miss this opportunity! Everyone will get an entry into the raffle just for being at the event!!
#2 HEALTHY FOOD
Thrive potlucks are known for the incredible and health filled food brought by its caring friends and members, so we want to utilize that gift and collect your recipes and share the HEALTH!! Please bring a copy of the recipe of the dish you made on a recipe card or piece of paper. Everyone in attendance can snap a pic of their favorite dishes for instant use and Team Thrive will collect all the recipes to create a Door County Thrive Cookbook!! (Cookbook details and dates TBD).
#3 REDUCING WASTE
During the potluck we will have a short presentation on reducing waste and an update on the Green Tier Initiative in Egg Harbor whose focus in 2019 is:
reducing waste. saving seeds . making dirt
To kick start the theme, we ask everyone to bring your own UTENSILS and PLATES from home – this is a very easy and efficient way to reduce waste. Brining ceramic plates and metal utensils from home creates zero waste to use. Wrap them up with cloth napkins to protect them while traveling and use them during dinner. Avoiding paper or styrofoam plates and plastic utensils is a great way to reduce waste and keep plastics out of the Great Lakes.
Door County Thrive is excited to host this fun filled, community potluck on February 21st, 2019 @6pm at the Donald and Carol Kress Pavilion located at 7845 Church Street, Egg Harbor, Wisconsin 54209. Please join us in this opportunity to say Thank You, Enjoy the Health and Reduce the Waste!
Door County Thrive’s vision is to build ecoliteracy through community action! Our mission is to grow into a thriving network of thinkers & do-ers who can add to the vitality of our already abundant peninsula. We aim to empower each other by bringing the best of ourselves into collaborations that will serve the greater good.
