    It was another great year. So many people, great speakers, lots of samples, and information on how to get involved in the community.

    The one event I always attend. Thanks for no music/annoucements on that screechy amplifier, yay! And a less lighting (as they do at the Expo Center) would make a more intimate atmosphere, at less cost, yes? I'll also volunteer to reduce the landfill containers and encourage exhibitors to embrace completely degradable containers. VS

    Well run event with thousands of people coming through the doors to learn more about embracing a plant-based lifestyle. Really liked the new activity areas for kids and teens. Great vendors, potent speakers and some new restaurants completed the experience. Always a treat for us to make the trip to see old friends and make some new ones. Introducing the chefs is always a fun part of this for me and I get to see how many people are inspired to learn more about how to cook or "uncook" the vegan way. Thank you to everyone that put this event on this year.

    Lorrie, I believe this is a general invite to the whole weekend, but if you like to get together with a group at a specific time or for a certain talk a separate posting could be put up for that purpose. I may do so for some talk, but will be busy volunteering much of the weekend.
