Glendora Vegetarian Club

Grilled and layered eggplant, portabella, zucchini and yellow squash with roasted tomato sauce and balsamic drizzle… That’s flavor, satisfaction, nutrition and health. National magazine of the American Vegan Society extolled the Glendora Vegetarian Club for its vegan commercials on the 6:30pm television news.

In the school cafeteria next to a bowl of apples, there was a sign, “Take one; God is watching.”  At the other end of the counter was a platter of cookies. A little girl said to her friend, “Take two; God is watching the apples.”

Filmmaker Thomas Jackson has completed a documentary on the relationship between spirituality, veganism, along with religion. Jackson concluded that the underlying element of all these was compassion. Burger King now has a vegan whopper, this is a triumph of all of us vegans over the decades.

“You remind me of Dan Smith.” “I am not a thing like Dan Smith.” “Oh, yes you are; you both owe me $10.”  Glendora thanks The Advertiser for its copious help the past 6 years.  Announcing the 6:00pm meetings the last Wednesday of every month. Bring a vegan dish and begin to feel good about how you eat.
