What we're about

Welcome to the Vegan ...and almost Vegan Meetup Group....

No matter if you are Vegan, vegetarian or interested in starting your journey to a healthy meatless life.... you are welcome to join us.

The intent of this Group is to meet other like-minded people who share the Love of Animals, and a Healthy Lifestyle to enjoy some Vegan bonding thru Dinners , Potlucks , Game nights , Movies , Bowling , Hiking , Traveling , Volunteering , Festivals , Sporting Events , Holiday Events like Christmas White Elephant Exchange and other Fun gatherings!

Every member is respected as someone who is either Vegan... or on the road to "becoming" a Vegan... And with that in mind... please understand this IS a Vegan Meetup, intended for Vegans and those trying to "become" Vegan, so even thou vegetarians are welcome to join, our meals, events and topics will be Vegan geared... Which means... No animal meat or products, also "No dairy or egg products" are to be brought to events such as Potlucks... Nor anything else that would be considered animal exploitation ...

(please, refer to... How to organize a nice vegan-friendly meet up).

We organize Vegan friendly events which may include:

- Having Both Vegan and Raw Food potlucks!

- Organizing exciting trips both in state and out of state ...

- Having Dinner together at tasty vegan / vegetarian restaurants

- Participating in vegan social activities such as festivals, lectures, exhibitions and cooking classes

- Exchanging recipes and any veg-related info

- Having Holiday Meals like Thanksgiving with others who share our Vegan lifestyle

- And of course Volunteering to bring awareness to animal rights thru various venues

And you may always propose something new!

So, if you are from an animal rights organization and would like to invite our members for your actions, you will find our support here :)
