From the Prez
As the year comes to the end, we would like to take this opportunity to thank each of you for your continuing support of the Vegetarian Society of El Paso. Thanks to all that help organize, staff and attend our events. Without you, we would not have potlucks, restaurant hoppers, vegan bake sales, cooking classes, outreach activities, radio shows, websites, or restaurants that are offering more compassionate choices.
Join us in celebrating and renewing our friendships this year at our annual membership meeting in evening on Dec 8th at Opus World Bistro. Chef Michael Ross has designed a sumptuous vegan feast for us. We will also be installing our new officers at the dinner. Congratulations to our new vice-president, Greg Lawson!
Speaking of Greg, he will be our featured speaker at our February dinner. You may know Greg from his local activism as the past-President of VSEP and co-founder/host of Animal Concerns of Texas Radio (88.5 KTEP) but you may not be aware that he is equally active on the national level – speaking, blogging, and judging the Vegetarian Chili-Cook off in Austin. Come and hear Greg’s perspective on the animal rights movement and his take on how you can contribute to the movement.
Please check the Calendar of Events for reservation information for both of these events.
In February, we will be providing a vegan meal at the Opportunity Center. This is an important and much appreciated event. If you would like to help serve, see the Calendar of Events for Tom Linney’s contact information and check out our other events while you are there. We are already busy planning for vegan bake sales, the Best of Veg Awards, and much more in the coming year. We welcome your participation and ideas.
Happy holidays and hope to see you at a VSEP event soon!
