    This was a great forum to learn about being vegan. There were food vendors and speakers. Everyone was so nice and informative. The food vendors were great. The film/documentary was great. I will attend again.

    I don't know if there are words to describe this wonderful event! How about the words "superb and excellent!". I am posting photos. Place tag yourself and others that you know. Also, I deeply apologize to those of you there were there, that I had not gotten a photo of! I wished I could have gotten all of your lovely and smiling faces! When I was looking over the photos as they were downloading, I thought, WOW..I have such an abundance of terrific vegan family members!!!! It was like a big happy vegan family reunion! All of you looked like you were having such a great time and so happy! We were all in our element!!! I think we all met many more people too, today that we can now add to our friends, as well! So many like minded people in one place! Thank you to the Cleveland Vegan Society for doing such an outstanding job!!! WooHoo!

    I think maybe they can still use some volunteers. They have a facebook page if you are interested in working. The woman's name is Donna.

    This was a great event last year- looking forward to it very much this time around! Do talk it up to friends, family, co-workers, everyone- a potentially life-altering opportunity for someone, you never know...

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
