Glendora Vegetarian Club

The boss said to his secretary, “Your work is improving; it does not take us so long to do it over.”    A man said he loves the way the boss holds his business meetings. He calls us together. He presents his proposals. Then he says, all in favor say I. All opposed say bye.  A man asked his boss, could he have the 15th off to celebrate his silver wedding anniversary?   The boss said, “What,” I have to put up with this every 25 years?”

Each of us at the Glendora Vegetarian Club would be jubilant if you would support the following in their struggle to stop abhorrent cruelty to animals: American Vegan Society,  Humane Farming Association,  Farm Animals Rights Movement,  Mercy for Animals, Compassion over Killing, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. Vegan Outreach.
