Greetings to my Fantastic VegGR Community,
As some of you know, I've made the big decision to make a full time move to
Chicago, after commuting for almost 3 years. I'm going back to school and
started classes at the end of August! This, of course, means that I will be
able to be much less involved in our group. I've been an organizer for the
group since 2004 and it's been a huge part of my life. I've met many wonderful
people and been supported and inspired. I can only hope that I did that for some
of you, too!
It's a little sad to step back, but I know we have a great (growing!) group of
individuals and strong leaders who will carry on and continue to support the
veg*an community in Grand Rapids! It's an exciting time for Vegetarians and
Vegans in the West Michigan area. There are increasingly more restaurants
supporting vegan menus, people interested in improving the welfare of all
sentient beings, and awesome individuals making great lifestyle choices every
day! I'm so inspired by you all! Thank you for being such an important,
beautiful and inspiring part of my life. I will miss you dearly.
That being said, please stay in touch! I have a little idea up my sleeve for
those of you who might like to make a worthwhile trek to Chicago in October and
I will be posting that shortly. Also, please know that you, (my veg community),
always have a couch to sleep on in Chicago! And I still have family to visit in
Grand Rapids so as it schedule allows, I'd love to be able to organize a meetup
potluck or dinner outing on a return visit!
Thank you again, for being the wonderful people that you are.
With warm regard and much love,
