Re: [vegetarian-405] New Meetup: Volunteering at Vegetarian Expo

Hi, Claire. I haven't been ignoring you- I've been sick this week. Nothing serious, but the constant coughing has temporarily trashed my voice and I'm a bit low in energy. I'm still not ruling out volunteering tomorrow, but I don't know how I'll be. At least the convention center is easier to get to than Saratoga or Schenectady would have been.

I'm pretty sure I can help out; the expo seems to be short-handed this year. Maybe something behind the scenes where I wouldn't spew microscopic parasites on people (and give a lousy impression of vegetarians, who are supposed to be HEALTHY)?
