Glendora Vegetarian Club

Glendora called Goomba’s Pizza and asked if she bought and brought her own vegan cheese would Goomba’s make her a pizza. AJ said yes. (And he delivers!) So the Glendora Vegetarian Club had its monthly meeting the last Wednesday of the month at Goomba’s.

Have you tried the new vegan diner on Wahconah St. in Pittsfield? Glendora thinks it’s a charmer. Choice is voluminous,

and the food is exquisite.

The Glendora Vegetarian Club has consummated four half-hour shows on DVD for each of 20 TV stations from Groton, CT, to San Diego, CA. They carry the most important messages in all of television: Go vegan and When all is said and done, the only thing that really matters is how you treat others. In her book Eat Vegan with Me, Mary Lawrence says, “Thank you, Glendora, for making compassion the main course.”

Would you like to be a vegan gardener next year? Eat Vegan with Me has ideas for everything from planting seeds to nurturing sprouts to enjoying the crops.

The Glendora Vegetarian Club has adopted the goal of presenting to you a different commercial every time on the 6:30 pm news, CBS Channel 6: a joke to make you laugh and a strong impetus to go vegan.
