I searched for it as I've been yearning to connect with like-minded vegans! I wish I had searched earlier, as I love being a part of a community and I can't think of a better one than a vegan community.
I stopped eating red meat when I was 20 and kept progressing to stopping fish for good 18 years ago and then giving up dairy completely 15 years ago. I couldn't participate in torturing animals any longer, even for the dairy. I just wish I'd been educated about fish and dairy many years earlier.
The get togethers/potlucks are a great idea and as individuals see fit to expand their involvement in animal rights beyond their food choices, networking on that can be done at the get togethers.

I'm excited to meet other vegans. I've been vegan for about 15 years; vegetarian before that. I LOVE and am passionate about ALL animals.
This was my first gathering but I can tell that this group is top-notch with Lisa at the helm ;-)
