Meeting Description: Hello My Animal Rights Friends,

Saturday May 17th from 11am-12:30pm there is another Vegan Toastmasters meeting. These meetings are wonderful! Basically, it's a group set up to help people with public speaking, and more specifically how to discuss vegan issues fluidly. Have you ever been confronted by someone regarding an animal rights issue and you wish you knew exactly what to say as eloquently as possible? This group helps you deal with those situations.

It's an amazingly fun and friendly atmosphere. I look forward to going every time. A lot of the time, people bring vegan treats to share. There is not any obligation or expectation for guests to bring food, but if you want to bring a vegan item to share, you are welcome to do so.

I hope to see everyone there! And if you can't make it to this next meeting, perhaps you can join us in the future. We meet every first and third weekends of the month.

This meeting will be at the Whole Foods store located at National and Barrington, on the second floor. Please park on the street in the residential area around the store, because the store parking lot only allows 1 hr parking and the meeting lasts 1.5 hrs.

Below is a more formal explanation of the group:

The mission of Vegan Toastmasters is to provide a supportive
environment for vegans to learn and practice speaking and leadership skills. As vegans, we need to put forth as strong and effective a message as possible on behalf of those beings without a voice. Speeches relating to the many aspects of veganism are encouraged. For further info, visit www.vegantoastmasters.org.

Hope to see you there,
Armaiti :)
