Hi Friendly Vegetarians!

I started the Philadelphia Vegetarian Social Club on December 27, 2011, with a six-month "float the balloon" idea and paid $72 to meetup.com to get the group up and running. I wasn't sure whether there would be much of an interest in a vegetarian meetup group in a town that is famous for its meat sandwiches!

In six months, we have had 20 events and our membership has steadily increased. I feel this is a fun group activity and I have received more ideas for events from many of you recently; I assure you I will be scheduling them soon! I have also met many friendly faces and shared nice meals with people who care, and just overall, running this group seems to have enriched my life with nice experiences and people.

I am continuing the group by paying $72 for another six months, due by June 27, 2012. I know that some of you have already given me donations in the past, and I appreciate that gesture of support, so thank! I will be happy to take $1 from others at future events, but it is not a requirement; give if you feel like it.

Thanks, and see you at future events!

Hey, Himanshu!

I think a lot of organizers are realizing the regular costs of keeping a group like this up. A $1 or $2 per event suggested donation I think is MORE thank fair, and I'd be more than happy to do my part when I attend. :o)
