    I had a wonderful time. I took Pace who also lives in Claremont, but have not met any of the others. Only saw Adam who is also in this group! I ended up volunteering at the information booth and had a great time talking to people! I thought they did a great job on the Veg Fest, it being the first one there! I was told that they had at least 1100 there!

    Pace, That is fine I am in no rush to get home. There are discussions and lectures going on, so I will be fine sitting in on some of them! So I will plan to meet you around 8:30 on Saturday at T bird.

    The Valley Vegfest 2014 Schedule is now online at http://www.valleyveg.org/vegfest/schedule. You can also check out the list of all the great vendors and organizations participating.

    Pace, T Bird would be fine, but what about 8:30? I think if we get there closer to when it opens, you will get more time to see all the vendors. I know at the Boston Veg Fest it gets much more busy mid day than in the earlier morning! So I think earlier is better. Let me know as soon as you find out if you can't come because I have to cancel a hike for the same day, and am not sure I want to go all by myself.
    I have a red Toyota Celica when we meet.

      That's fine with me. I just can't leave the event before my volunteer shift ends at 2pm. Also, I was wondering if you would be willing to make a super quick stop downtown while we are there so I can drop off a job application?

  • Kathy C.

    Pace, I didn't know how to reply on your comment line. But I could leave at 8:30 or before if you like, to get there by 10:00. Where would you like to meet? I live right in town on East Street.

      Sounds good! I live off of Charlestown road so I imagine you'll be coming my way anyway. We could meet at the T-bird on Charlestown Road at 9 if you like? My volunteer shift goes to 2pm and I would like some time to check things out of course, but I am flexible to whenever you would like to leave. Also, I have every intention of going at this point, but I am currently in the middle of adopting a dog in foster care so there is a slight chance I will have to skip out if Saturday ends up being the day to go get my boy! I am hoping to plan on picking him up on Sunday if that works out, but I am waiting on some info.

    I live in Claremont also, and would be happy to carpool, and drive. I could take one other person, and two more if they don't mind squeezing into the back seat of my Celica!!!

      I would love to join you if you are willing to leave earlier. I am volunteering there at 11:30.

    Would love to go, especially if we can carpool - coming from White River but would meet as far south as Brattleboro if Necesary )

      I live in Montpelier, and would be able to offer space in my vehicle (which would be one of either a compact car or a minivan).
