    Awesome as usual. I really enjoyed volunteering in the kids area. It was really encouraging seeing so many families there. And it was great seeing so many people there I know. :)

    Lot of variety in food products. Lots of free samples of products. Saturday was very crowded. Could have spent a lot of money there. But didn't. Overall had a good time.

    Small note: I volunteered today, Saturday and LOved Dr. Will Tuttle's talk especially. However, I wonder why the vendor next to Supreme Master Ching Hai, "The Epoch Times" (space 118), was there at all -- the young man has no interest in vegan or vegetarian subjects, but only that people join his religious practice and then -- incidentally, has no objection to those who want to become veg. Discussion? Love and Peace, VS

      There are postcards in different shops around town, and one of our volunteers has been passing them out for us. She posts where she is going to be on here, in case other people want to help her hand them out. Keep an eye out for them, they are around. I promise!
