What we're about
This group is for friendly people interested in the vegan lifestyle who want to have fun, share awesome tasty food and socialize with like-minded people in a relaxed comfortable atmosphere. There are many reasons to choose this lifestyle from compassion and love for animals, animal rights, health, environmentalism to kindness and peace. You do not have to be vegan to be part of this group. Vegetarians, plant based and veg curious people are welcome to join with no pressure, but you must respect our lifestyle choice. Remember this is a vegan group please do not order or eat meat, fish, seafood, cheese, dairy, eggs, honey or other items containing any animal products at this groups events or you may be removed from the group. If you are veggie curious and only looking for friends or to market yourself or your business this group is not for you. Please join many of the other generic groups instead of his one that fit your needs. Please only join as a veggie curious person if you are seriously considering or in the process of becoming full vegetarian, vegan or plant based. This is a group of people looking to socialize with like-minded people and it is already diverse enough with a combination of ethical vegans, vegetarians and plant based people. It is not for people not ultimately wanting one of those lifestyles.
Please post a picture of yourself and at least your first name in your profile . This helps us identify you at an event and welcome you into the group.
I am aiming for a fun, happy, enjoyable and respectful group of like-minded people.
If you RSVP for an event and don't show up and you didn't update your RSVP to indicate you were no longer going you may be deleted from the group. Most of the time we have seats reserved for the people signed up to attend and need a accurate count. Restaurants plan with reserved seating, employees and amount of vegan food needed. I don't want members leaving a bad impression of our group where we are not welcome back. No shows show a lack of respect to the venue, group and organizer and will not be tolerated.
Members can choose to contribute by submitting the optional $5 suggested annual dues. If you enjoy the group, please consider paying the optional annual dues which helps pay our meetup dues and costs to run the group. We also ask that you contribute by suggesting events, hosting events, being friendly, and telling your friends about us. Your participation is greatly appreciated and paramount to the success of this and any group.
I always look forward to meeting more veggie friends. Don't worry about attending an event alone as this is a very welcoming group.
