What we're about

https://secure.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/c/f/6/6/event_23153094.jpeg

Even if you are not vegan yet, our main goal is to meet other kind, compassionate, and healthy seeking people monthly at various times of the the month for potlucks and/or presentations, speakers, educational DVDs. We also have monthly dine outs, fitness excursions, book clubs and any other ideas you have regarding health, animal welfare and earth sustainablilty. When we have potlucks or snacks, please bring a plant based or vegan dish or snack (no dairy or eggs) to our potlucks so that everyone can eat all the dishes. We do not want to include eggs, dairy, or meat as we do not want to contribute to the suffering or early death of egg laying chickens or dairy cows.

THIS meetup group is for EVERYONE interested in becoming compassionate and healthy too. This is for YOU and we make this successful by joining here together to make our events successful! We NEED you to make our compassionate and healthy vegan movement move ahead!! Thank you for joining us no matter where you are on your path to a vegan lifestyle! Our cooking classes can help you transiiton to VEGAN!!! We look forward to meeting you!! WE ALSO APPRECIATE IT YOU COULD BRING OIL FREE SNACKS OR DISHES SO WE VEGANS CAN KEEP OUR HEARTS HEALTHY AND KEEP IDEAL BODY WEIGHT FOR HEALTH. (If you want to know why we omit added oils like olive oil, coconut oil, and all vegetable oils, please email me, Linda, at veganmentor@gmail.com).

Upcoming events (5+)

You are Invited to Linda Middlesworth's 75th Birthday Celebration!!

UPDATE to the UPDATE (from Diana): I stand corrected: Angelique, the owner of Zest, has assured me they can get everyone served a meal order during the bday gathering for our Dear Linda. The original plan was to have some potluck dishes along with some orders from Zest. But since Zest needs to be fully staffed to assist us we’ve decided to ask that you please do NOT bring a potluck dish after all - unless you just can’t get what you need from the Zest menu. And Linda said “No presents, but your presence!” The invite/photo still mentions a potluck, but please just come and enjoy yourself and leave the cooking to Zest!! See you on the 23rd!
