Glendora Vegetarian Club
The devil challenged St. Peter to a baseball game. St. Peter: How can you win? The good players are up here? Devil: all the umpires are down here? Why did the inventor cross a microwave oven with a TV Set? So, he could
watch 60 minutes in a quarter of an hour.
Go Vegan, Greg: soy milk: vanilla, chocolate, almond… Glendora Vegetarian Club purchased 7 ads on college basketball CBS for March and 20 more ads on the channel 6 News 6:30pm for April.
Everywhere people say to Glendora, “I see you on tv.” We are helping the animals. Julia Dunn, the morning anchor on CBS Channel 6 has invited Glendora to be a guest on “Positively Upstate”. The vegan pioneers of the past didn’t know what we know today. Many became vegan thinking that it may be bad for our health or possibly even kill us, but we did it anyway. Why? Because we didn’t want to fund animal use/abuse. Luckily, all those people who doubted the vegan lifestyle were misinformed. They had bought the lies they were sold by those who profit from animal exploitation. quote- B. Katz American Vegan
