Important Update

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,
