Welcome to the magical month of March SLVS Meetup members!
We've got two meetups scheduled to celebrate the magic of March: the Great American Meatout on Saturday, March 21, and Vegan Outreach Adopt-A-College leafleting at Saint Louis University on Tuesday, March 24.
My hope is that future meetups can be better spaced apart, which leads me to the second reason I am writing....
Because I would like to make our meetup group the best veg*n meetup group ever, I must have help if that goal is to become a reality. Therefore I've asked two of our meetup members to join me as co-organizers so we can work as a team and schedule a wider variety of activities and events. Beginning today, our meetup will be guided by a team consisting of me, Constance, and Melissa. You may recall that Melissa and Constance spoke to three Southwestern Illinois College English classes last month and were very well received. In addition to speaking to college classes, they have many other talents to offer our meetup group. So please join me in welcoming Constance and Melissa as co-organizers.
We are working out the schedule for the next couple of months and will place the meetups on the calendar as soon as we have dates confirmed. Tentative plans are for a bar-b-q/potluck in May, a cooking demonstration from Match meats in June, a field trip to a rescue ranch in July, and a long-awaited return to Shangri-La in August. As always, please contact any of us with suggestions, comments or ideas you have for future meetups.
Meet fellow vegans near you! Come to an Arch Vegans Meetup. This can be a great way to discuss, learn and explore the joys and the many issues related to being vegan. Whether it's gardening, health, animal rights, food politics, the environment, vegan cooking, or any other related interest, come and share, or just stop by a meetup for a visit and some socializing! You can also follow us on the Arch Vegans Facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/groups/367964060602/
