The year-end holidays begin with the VSH Annual Thanksgiving Eve

Open to VSH members and nonmembers alike, the event was attended by
301 guests last year.
The fare will
be very traditional (see below), completely homemade, and vegan.
Wherever possible it will be organic and free of GMOs, hydrogenated
oils, MSG, preservatives, and artificial colors and flavors. The oil
and salt content will be kept under control, and nut- and
gluten-free alternatives will be available.

hosts at Govinda’s will as usual be doing their best for us. Madana,
the director at Govinda’s, deserves special thanks for making this

entertainment area for the keiki.
