Greetings AVA members,
Lots of good things happening around AVA. This message is a heads up of what all is going on. We be busy:)
We have a new action group that is devoted to political action. Jill, Frank and Anne are working on processes to benefit all creatures in our area. They will be organizing events at council meetings and speaking in benefit of animals in many venues around WNC. Stay tuned for specific information and meetups related to this action group.
The film screening action group consist of Lauren, Cynthia and CJ. They will soon be announcing their second Film screening. Most things are in place and Lauren will announce the details soon. Lauren will be in need of several members to assist in distributing fliers and getting the word out about this film. If you are interested in helping Lauren, Cynthia and CJ, please let Lauren know soon. You may also hear from me to ask you to help. Thank you in advance - Remember it’s for the animals.
The tabling and education action group consist of Dianne, Lafayette and Zia. After a very successful Organic fest - They have scheduled a tabling event at the Waynesville Apple Festival. This is a big event. Over 25k are expected to attend this event. We will be asking for volunteers to help with this tabling. And of course, everyone will want to come to this festival. More details will be posted within the coming week.
There are still a few action groups yet to be established. We wish to organize an action group to mentor new Vegans. This group would take individual new Vegans under their wing and mentor them by assisting, planning, developing and implementing meal plans and Vegan activities. This group may go to their home or invite them to another location to select foods, menus and to prepare same. This could be a very fun group. I wish I could head this group but tabling is keeping me busy. So, If ya know a lot about Vegan foods, how to cook them, or if you are just a good Vegan, Step forward, new Vegans need your help!
Foe now, we have one other action group we need a leader for. That is education and speakers group. This group would obtain venues and speakers on the topic of animal rights and Veganism. This would be an easy group to start as we have so many good speakers right here in our own neighborhood.
So.. It has been an very active few months. We have been very busy organizing events and helping the animals. We hope all the members here will become as motivated as the action groups and participate in a way that is best for you. If you have a good idea, if you want to participate, or head up an action group, please send me a direct email with what you can do to help the animals.
Remember, it’s about the animals.
