    I'm confused about the guest list. Do we email Goat Mountain or Katelyn to be added to the guest list? or both? Can we pay the $10 at the door?

      Hey everybody ~ Let's pull out the stops in publicizing this event over the next week. I've got a copy of the flyer and am happy to supply as many copies as anyone can use to post around town and hand out at events. I'm especially thinking now of folks on campuses. On the merits of hearing Jonathan Balcombe alone this is well worth going and giving it maximum publicity. But because it's also a benefit for Goat Mountain Ranch Sanctuary, it's a "must do"! I had a call from a woman in DC who with her sister is key to making this happen and I learned that Balcombe is making a special trip to AVL especially for this Goat Mountain fund raiser. In other words, it's not as if we're just another stop on a book tour.

      [Sorry, I hit "return" wanting to create a new paragraph and sent the message instead.] Anyhoo, you get my drift. Phone or email me and we can make arrangements to get you flyers to post in libraries, coffee shops (where permitted), natural food stores, etc. See you a week from tonight! ~ Cynthia ([masked]; (828)[masked] P.S. Jonathan will be selling and signing books that evening too, so bring along some extra cash. And as we already know, Zia and willing helpers will be preparing vegan finger foods to serve. Goodness me, for anyone who knows Zia's vegan culinary skills, that's reason enough to come, as if we needed another one!
