I live in Iowa and probably can't make that many events, but would like to move to MN.
I'm a vegan interested in animal rights.
Heya Trish, is it just this Sunday, or no Sundays, that doesn't work for you?
Hi Trish-only just now saw your post. The cost varies. We were paying 6 months at a time for $72. I think it costs more if it is month to month but don't know the cost now. VCI has generated interest on the meetup site, but few people were actually RSVP-ing via meetup so we decided not to continue. There is also a lot of marketing options on there we have not been using.
Welcome aboard, Trish. In addition to the events on this site, there is a Women's Health Forum (I am a speaker) on January 23 in Pella....Call [masked] or [masked] for more info.
Great. I can't remember her last name right now, but I know her first name is Jessica. She attended Gene Baur's talk in DM.
I'm on Facebook but am growing weary of it!
Yes, I can. If you send me an e-mail after Labor Day, I can definitely put the word out (I think things are too hectic for students until then.). I have contacts at the UI and ISU--and know someone who is a Grinnell native that could possible help with Grinnell.
Trish, lemme know your e-mail address if you'd like to be kept in the loop about eastern IA vegan goings-on. I'm sending out an e-mail to over 100 folks today!
Hi, Trish! Nope--just a plain ol' vegan volunteer (but those scrubs and booties make me look professional, don't they? ;-)). I really lucked out: Farm Sanctuary put word out across the country for volunteers who had vet tech and/or large animal experience AND could work in a 2-month volunteer stint. My husband and I had been members for years, and we attended an animal care conference at FS years before. I think my being unemployed helped out!
